YMMV / The King and the Mockingbird


  • Awesome Music: The soundtrack is beautiful.
  • Big-Lipped Alligator Moment: The slinky clown dancing for the bored King.
  • Nightmare Fuel:
    • The portrait king emerging from the portrait and stalking the real king.
    • The end of the chase sequence, where the King's secret police spy on the unsuspecting lovers. It's one of the few times the State Sec poses a credible threat.
  • Too Dumb to Live:
    • The Police Chief, who reveals himself from behind to cheer the wedding after he said yes in place of the Shepherdess. His boss rewards him accordingly.
    • The Mockingbird's yellow child shows shades of this, getting caught in the same trap repeatedly.
  • Uncanny Valley: The portrait king when facing his real-life counterpart moves unnaturally and doesn't make a sound.
    • The chimney sweep and shepherdess. Whoever designed and animated them hadn't quite mastered realistic human movements.
