It's as though the people scripting the scene decided "To heck with what the soccer moms would think. Let's do our way!" I couldn't help comparing this throwing knives part to the Swiss Army knife part in L&S and wonder why anyone cared to alter it for soccer moms.

Disney is weird about when they want to appease soccer moms
In the 2002 film Lilo & Stitch, there's a scene with Jumba invading Lilo's house to capture Stitch. Jumba throws his open Swiss Army knife at Stitch and it stabs the back door and sticks out the other side and Pleakley who is standing outside the door shrinks his body back from the Swiss Army knife's tools. In a early version of the scene, Jumba's Swiss Army knife has sharp tools and Pleakley shrinks away from a hatchet, a syringe, and a circular saw.
