- Cult Classic: Bolero especially is a gem of its own of Deranged Animation and detailed creatures before the age of CGI.
- Esoteric Happy Ending: At the end of the movie, the earth explodes and the words "HAPPY END" appear.
- Hilarious in Hindsight:
- Jerkass Woobie: Surprisingly, the snake in Firebird. Sure he tried to get Adam and Eve to eat the apple, but after eating the apple himself and going through a hellish world of western commercialism, who wouldn't want to comfort him?
- Nightmare Fuel: The Bolero piece introduces bizarre parodies of life. At the end, they pretty much get forcibly transformed into construction equipment. The chilling close-ups and bombastic music don't help at all.
- Retroactive Recognition: The animator is played by Maurizio Nichetti, who became known as the Italian Woody Allen.
- Tear Jerker: Watch the Valse Triste segment without tearing up. Lampshaded by everyone in the orchestra and chorus and onlookers bawling their eyes out.
- Visual Effects of Awesome: Bolero is a masterpiece of Deranged Animation
- What Do You Mean, It Wasn't Made on Drugs?
- The Woobie: The cat from Valse Triste.
YMMV / Allegro non Troppo
