YMMV: The Legend of the Titanic

Both films:


First film:

  • Alternate Character Interpretation: Is the narrator telling the real story of the Titanic? Is he blatantly lying to his grandkids? Or is he just a senile old man who was rambling the whole time? The words of his wife at the end lend credence to the latter two.
    "Your grandfather loves to tell stories, but like all sailors, you shouldn't take it too seriously."
  • Critical Research Failure: Even more so than that other Titanic cartoon.
  • Crowning Music of Awesome: The closing credits song, 'Ocean Dreams' (or 'Ocean of Dreams') sung by Cynthia Z.
  • Dude, Not Funny!: It's been getting this reaction because it features the the Titanic not sinking, along with everyone getting saved (yes, even the band and the Captain), which many consider an insult to those who died in the real tragedy.
  • Ho Yay: The two young male mice, Connors and Ronnie, are quite touchy-feely throughout the film. Makes more sense than when Connors ended up with Stella, who he only shared a few lines with.
  • Mary Sue: One could easily interpret Elizabeth and Don Juan as examples. Elizabeth is a Friend to All Living Things with Incorruptible Pure Pureness and rebels against social convention by preferring someone of lower status.
    • Marty Stu: Don Juan also has many of Elizabeth's qualities. The villains clearly single out Don Juan as a target to spy on despite not knowing anything about him.
    • Purity Sue: Elizabeth in particular, but Don Juan also has a few bits of this.
    • Relationship Sue: For each other.
  • Unfortunate Implications: Denying that the Titanic was terrible accident in which anyone died just for a trite anti-whaling screed. It's enough to make you wonder if the people behind the film were even aware that Cameron's film was based on a real event where hundreds senselessly died.
    • The fact that the Don Juan constantly sniffs Elizabeth's glove can be very creepy.


Second film:

  • Angst? What Angst?: Our heroes seem to care very little about the fact that they're stuck in Atlantis forever, even though on the surface Don Juan has his gypsy brothers, Elizabeth has her father, Connors has a wife, and Ronnie has a sister and family.
  • Designated Hero: Taken to the extreme with Re. He is depicted as the Big Good. However, he looks and acts like a Big Bad.
  • Fridge Horror: Where did Razor-Teeth get that captain's uniform he wears?
  • "Funny Aneurysm" Moment: "This liquid looks pretty! Let's drink it.". The said liquid is colored green. In these days, one of the more well-known drug detectors will turn the drink green when it discovers a date rape drug.
  • Narm: Oddy's attempt at a threat.
    If something bad happens to my friends, I'll rip every tooth out of that shark and I'll make them into the most beautiful necklace you've ever seen!
  • Nightmare Fuel: The scene at the end, when the escaped rats are all seen in an insane asylum. Especially the nurse giggling madly while the doctor talks about how there's no hope of them recovering and makes a horrifying face. The protagonists all laugh when they see this.
    • And the Big Bad rat, who's the only sane one (and who did nothing wrong) is also condemned to stay there.
  • The Scrappy: Pingo has that reputation.
  • Sequelitis: Even though the first movie was one of the worst adaptations of the Titanic sinking, this movie was even worse than its predecessor.
  • Unfortunate Implications: The King of Atlantis makes Juan and Elizabeth immortal without telling them. Adding to that, the King's design would peg him as the Big Bad in any other film, but the viewer is expected to agree with him.
  • Unintentionally Unsympathetic: The King of Atlantis is a good example. He's intended to be a good guy, yet he does not allow Elizabeth, Don Juan, or the others to return to the surface, makes them immortal without telling them, and forces them to live in Atlantis forever.
