Trivia

During the UK 'video nasty' scare of the 1980's anti-censorship journalist Liam T. Sanford wrote a false letter petitioning against this film to the Police Watch Committee, claiming the movie to be 'sick and horrific', in an attempt to discredit local police forces and expose their lack of film knowledge. Sure enough the film was briefly seized by officers from video retailers before being hastily returned to the shelves.

This was the first Disney film to contain swearing; the word "damn" is used, as is the phrase "son of a bitch" (albeit unfinished).

Writer Jimmy Sangster had originally planned for this to be a more serious addition to the horror genre, to be made for Hammer, and with Vincent Price starring. The title would have been " The Fairytale Man".
