- Non Sequitur Scene: The song Sinbadko plays for Lord Neptune in his undersea kingdom.
- Really, the entire 'undersea kingdom' portion of the film could qualify. (It makes marginally more sense in the original Russian version; Sadko is asked to perform a song for the undersea kingdom because he is foremost a wandering minstrel, not a sailor, but the musical numbers which help to establish this are largely cut from the English dub.)
- Hilarious in Hindsight: Sadko's name was changed to Sinbad to cover up the fact that the film was a Soviet production based on Russian legends. Trying to paste Middle Eastern names and culture over it made it ostensibly more American-friendly in the Cold War era, when anything Russian was dangerously un-American.
