Willy the Sparrow (Hungarian: Vili, a veréb) is a 1989 Hungarian animated film about a thoughtless boy who is turned into a sparrow so he can learn to respect the smallest of creatures.
Tropes used by the film:
- Anvilicious: Averted in the original Hungarian version, played straight in the English dub.
- Baleful Polymorph
- Can't Hold His Liquor: Cyprus.
- Crowning Moment of Awesome: Guess why the lady needed that broom so badly.
- Crowning Music of Awesome: 
- Alcohol Is Bad
- Forgot I Couldn't Swim: The Sparrow Guardian turned Willy into a mouse before she remembered that she is afraid of them.
- Humanity Ensues: When Willy is turned back, his elderly sparrow friend is also transformed into a human.
- In Another Man's Shoes
- Karmic Transformation
- Lyrical Dissonance: The hungarian version's inspiring-sounding ending song has lyrics about how there are no real miracles in the world, our months and years are passing in a grey monotone, and the best you can do is to pretend that your dreams are real. In the english version, it was replaced with another song about how awesome flying is.
- Nightmare Fuel: Not in the English dub, but in the original, Sissy the cat opens her mouth about to eat Willy, or rather wants to eat your face given the camera position, but just as Willy's little sister comes in.
- Wisdom from the Gutter: Both played straight and subverted. Willy learns lessons from a mere bird, and bad rats in the bar tell him to drink the "Elixir of Knowledge", or alcohol.
- You Fail Biology Forever: Cats do not switch from the standard "square teeth grin" to actual barrage of fangs when they find a sparrow that turns out to be their owner. Seriously, don't tell your biology teacher because it isn't true.
