This is the last Disney film to involve actor Hans Conried. The arguably best known role of his career was that of Captain Hook/George Darling in Peter Pan (1953). See more »
When Jake is about to convert the gold bar, we first see him seated in the middle of the couch, 'concentrating' on the bar in front of him...when the military bursts in to the apartment, the shot is wider, and we can clearly see that Jake is not on the couch, but it then immediately cuts to a shot of him on the couch again.

I've watched this movie when I was a kid and loved it, now I'm 25 and I watched it again yesterday and loved it even more! OK, so it might be simplistic and naive, but it's good old-style Disney. OK, so the cat who comes from a Galaxy far far away looks exactly like an Earth cat, and speaks perfect English. So what? You can't spend 1 hour in a 1 and a half hour film showing the cat and the human trying to "understand each other" and a "universal translator" would be just as stupid. So forget that, accept it, and enjoy the story! Some of the funny stuff probably works better for kids then for adults, but it still makes you smile. The cat talks, but no stupid and ugly 3D/puppet moving mouth, just good old fashioned training and snacks behind camera to make him "act" perfectly! And he does: a close-up on his face and his stare makes you BELIEVE that he is talking. There are some goofs and some mistakes, sometimes you see a puppet-cat (for stunts!)which is obviously a puppet, but it's still a very enjoyable movie for all ages! I just wish they made more of these films now!
