YMMV: The Adventures of the American Rabbit

  • Anvilicious - About everything from honesty to sportsmanship to proper piano technique.
  • Anti-Climax Boss - The final duel between Rob and the main villain is ridiculous and uninteresting. It starts with Vultor kidnapping the moose child at the dam and leaving him on a rock in the middle of ankle-deep water closeby the heroes and ends with Vultor losing control of his flight in a snowstorm.
  • Ass Pull - Everywhere. From the Legacy to the lightning powers to the world domination scheme involving chocolate. It's all there.
  • Awesome Music - The music for this was done by Howard Kaylan and Mark Volman, AKA Flo (Volman) and Eddie (Kaylan), of The Turtles, The Mothers Of Invention and Down and Dirty Duck fame.
  • Canon Sue - Rob. He's destined from before he was born to become a superhero, is always morally righteous, plays sports well, and is a musical prodigy. The people around him constantly talk about how wonderful he is.
  • Designated Hero - Rob constantly misses opportunities to stop the Jackals throughout the movie, and only directly stops like two of them by the time the movie's over.
  • Ensemble Darkhorse: Ping, the Garfield-voiced gorilla. Supposedly, besides attempting to make money to rebuild a bar, the characters traveling with Rob believe that they have a "duty to fight against evil," but out of all of them, Ping is the only one who actually does anything against the Jackal antagonists. In fact, he's probably more effective than Rob is, American Rabbit or not.
  • Ham and Cheese - Kenneth Mars deserves credit for taking this route as Vultor. His performance is possibly the only remotely enjoyable thing about this movie.
  • Hilarious in Hindsight - At the end, someone says "Wow! It looks like he's doing a barrel roll!
    • The penguins in New York City bear a surprisingly large resemblance to those in Club Penguin.
  • Suspiciously Similar Song - The main theme to the movie sound a lot like John Williams's Superman theme.
  • They Wasted a Perfectly Good Plot: In the movie, it is mentioned that not all jackals are bad. However, every jackal seen in the movie is a villain. They could have had Vultor decide that the jackals were no longer useful to him and leaving them to die on the burning boat in New Orleans. Robert could have saved them, leading to a Heel-Face Turn.
