YMMV: The Ugly Duckling

  • Ear Worm: The song composed by Frank Loesser.
  • Hey, It's That Voice!: In the Hallmark movie, the cygnet, nicknamed "Ugly", shares his voice with G1 Spike from My Little Pony.
  • Hollywood Homely: Baby swans are more or less identical to ducklings except for feather color.
    • It's probably more a case of "beauty is in the eye of the beholder" since the other ducks still shun the titular ugly "duckling".
      • Interestingly, in some versions where the old woman briefly takes him in, she comments on his ugliness, as well.
  • The Woobie: The title character. Seriously, who didn't want to hug the poor little guy.
