YMMV: Pinocchio and the Emperor of the Night
- Big Lipped Alligator Moment: The show-stopping dance number "You're A Star" could qualify as this, since even with the justification of Pinocchio being in a magical pleasure world where dreams come true, it seems to come out of nowhere, and while clearly relevant to the plot (for there to be a Deal with the Devil some reward has to be given first) and characterization (it ties into Pinocchio's desire to be famous), it is never mentioned again either.
- Cult Classic: The film made only $3.3 million at the box office, but has maintained a loyal cult following. It also currently has a 6.7/10 rating on IMDb.
- Hey, It's That Voice!: Mr. Grant (or Hudson) and Abu (what did you expect?) are the two con men, Barney Fife is Gee Willikers, Commodore Decker is Puppetino, and the Emperor of the Night is, of course, Darth Vader. Linda Gary also appears.
- Keep Circulating the Tapes: Between the poor box-office performance of this film and Filmation's demise, the chances of a DVD release are slim. Apart from a R2 release.
- Moment of Awesome: The film's climax, where the power of choice is enough to destroy evil incarnate and tear the empire apart.
- Narm/Narm Charm: Which side different parts of this movie fall on really depends on point of view. (Example: the Emperor of the Night's lines as he is overcome by the light of Pinocchio's heart could qualify as wonderfully karmic and awesome or...not.)
- The Scrappy: That damned bee.
- What Could Have Been: Gee Willikers was supposed to get his own Filmation TV series called Bugzburg, centering around him and his insect friends. But, when Group W sold Filmation to a group led by L'Oreal after shutting down the studio, the series was cancelled, despite having been sold to TV stations around the country and being near completion. Similarly, a spinoff of Brave Starr called Bravo, which was about people who live underground, was also cancelled, half finished.
