I think my personal favourite is "Yo, Robot".

I rather like One Night, Big Belly.

As a young student, I was a bit shocked to discover (courtesy of a multilingual Chinese friend) that the Kurosawa movie known here as "Throne of Blood" is known to Japanese viewers as "Cobweb Castle". An unusual case of translation improving the title! (For those not familiar, it's a pretty decent film - a Samurai retelling of Macbeth)
