YMMV: Wakko's Wish

  • Critical Dissonance: Despite the mixed reception from critics, a lot of fans enjoyed the movie.
  • Ensemble Darkhorse: The Captain of the Guard, maaaan! He's the funny one, maaaan, the impossibly funny one! Who hasn't he made laugh, maaaan? Wrong! Wronng!
  • Hilarious in Hindsight: At the end of the movie, Dot's supposed illness is revealed to be no more than plastic surgery to add a beauty mark to her face - or as she calls it "a cutie mark".
  • What an Idiot: When the Warners are told about the wishing star that landed,
    You'd Expect: They would leave early without telling anyone, or at least give them some hope by saying: "When we get back, things are going to be much better for Acme Falls."
    Instead: They actually tell the entire town about the wishing star and what you have to do get the wish (touch it), and naturally, they all immediately start racing to try to get to the wishing star first.
    • This is actually Lampshaded:
    Dot: Maybe we should've kept this our little secret.
