YMMV / The Slipper and the Rose

  • Big-Lipped Alligator Moment:
    • "What a Comforting Thing to Know" has only one plot-related purpose: so Edward can see Cinderella run past the window. The long list of Edward's dead ancestors have no bearing on the plot and are never mentioned again.
    • "Position and Positioning" ends with a dance sequence involving the palace servants that has nothing to do with the story.
    • "Suddenly It Happens" has ballet-dancing mice. Yes, you read that right. No, it doesn't make sense in context.

  • Crazy Awesome: The Fairy Godmother. The King forbids Edward to marry Cinderella and arranges for him to marry a princess instead? She finds Cinderella on her way there, takes her along and presumably creates a wedding dress for her, then blows a trumpet as a signal for her to walk up the aisle in the middle of the wedding ceremony. Oh, and she can't have known that it wasn't Cinderella who Edward was marrying, since she was surprised to see her on the swing, so she invented that whole plan there and then. "Now I shall have to do something spectacular yet again", indeed.
  • Hilarious in Hindsight: In "Find A Mate", the King and Queen suggest possible brides for Edward. "Princess Susan, Princess Karen, Princess Kate..."
