During production, René Laloux
, the only non-Czech working on this film, was almost removed from the production crew. The Czech Production staff wanted a "nationalistic" feel to its production and wanted Josef Kábrt
(1920-1989), the film's character graphics designer, to take the part of Director. This never happened and was apparently an "inspiration of the times". See more
