* TheyWastedAPerfectlyGoodCharacter: Babette is painted as a somewhat antagonistic figure...for making it out of her submissive damsel position, making it as a successful and respected pirate captain with a faithful crew. Besides the UnfortunateImplications of a woman leader being an irresponsible, it is also frustrating to think of the things this character could've accomplished if outside forces hadn't blown her back to where she started. At least she went backwards with a boyfriend...

* MemeticMutation: Andy's line "I'll tell ya something, I'm getting pretty sick and tired of all the dumb things that go on around here!" is often cited as a reaction to [[MindScrew the movie itself]].

Added DiffLines:

* HilariousInHindsight: The Greedy's first lines are a stuttered "What-what-what..." that sounds almost identical to the "Wort wort wort!" sounds the Elites make in ''{{Franchise/Halo}}''.


* BigLippedAlligatorMoment: The encounter with the Greedy. It comes out of nowhere, clashing with the rest of the film's otherwise low-key setting and only comes up again when Raggedy Ann thanks the camel for saving her life. It's also one of two scenes (the other being the joke kingdom) with no backgrounds, depicting the characters in pitch-black negative space.
* CultClassic: When it came out the film received mixed to negative reviews... Today it still does, but it has also developed a cult following thanks to some strong scenes and how utterly insane the story and setting are.
* EarWorm: Most of the songs. We are talking about the same songwriter who wrote [[Series/SesameStreet "Rubber Duckie, You're The One"]].

* SoBadItsGood: Less "bad" and more "weird." The plot is simple, but takes so many [[DerangedAnimation bizarre]], [[RandomEventsPlot random detours]] that it's hard to appreciate in any way other than bemused confusion.
* SoOkayItsAverage: The film is described fondly by those who worked on it, many of whom have become big names in the industry (such as Tom Sito and Eric Goldberg, to name a few), as an "animator's film" (ie, a film you more "appreciate" than enjoy). While generally considered a mediocre film on it's own, it boasts a talented crew and some impressive artwork that simply can't go unappreciated.

** Even the narrative scenes suffer from Richard Williams' infamous slow pacing just to show off how awesome the animation is. One of Williams's colleagues even admitted that The Greedy sequence went on too long, but Williams was adamant about leaving all of it in because [[ShownTheirWork his team had worked so hard to get it right]].
