* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: Jeffrey Katzenberg. For example, he comforted Mike Gabriel after he pulled advertising for ''TheRescuersDownUnder'' after it tanked opening weekend and realized the plights of the staff when they addressed their problems to him. The animators had a fierce love-hate relationship with him throughout his entire stay due to his nature as this trope.

* TitleDrop: A variation courtesy of Katzenberg, according to Hahn. He said in an interview around ''Disney/TheBlackCauldron'' that "we've got to wake Disney/SleepingBeauty." ''Cauldron'' director Joe Hale didn't take kindly to this, stating Sleeping Beauty '''was''' awake. ''Cauldron'' proved to be a CreatorKiller for Hale; he was terminated by Disney/Katzenberg not too long after this (he quickly took co-director Creator/RichardRich with him when Rich also acted negatively towards another new Disney executive, namely, Peter Schneider, the co-producer of this documentary/ Neither man were interviewed for the film).

* AshFace: To illustrate how Howard Ashman felt when co-director Kirk Wise shot down his idea for ''Beauty and the Beast'''s prologue [[note]]specifically, The Beast starting as a little naughty boy because Ashman thought that was tragic.

* IronicEchoCut: Mixes with TemptingFate. When Don Hahn brings the original non-musical first draft of Beauty and the Beast as directed by Richard Purdam to Jeffrey Katzenberg, he states in the narration that he would be crazy to scrap it and make them start over. Cue video clip of Katzenberg in an interview saying he did just that, as "it didn't work at all."
