YMMV / Puff the Magic Dragon
- Death of the Author: Stoners won't relinquish their reading of Puff as a metaphor for weed, in spite of the author's insistence that no such metaphor was intended.
- Ear Worm: The original song. Other songs introduced in the films qualify as well.
- Tear Jerker: Admit it. It was pretty sad when Jackie Paper had to leave Puff.
- What Do You Mean, It Wasn't Made on Drugs?: Yarrow insists that the song is entirely innocent and has no meanings beyond the obvious. Nevertheless, it's widely believed that the song is some sort of extended drug reference, to the point that it was banned in Singapore for many years.
