Many of the inanimate objects in the film were created and animated on the computer: cars, cabs, buses, Sykes' limousine, Fagin's trike (part scooter and part shopping cart), a cement mixer, a sewer pipe, a spiral staircase, a piano, subway tunnels and trains, cityscapes, and even the Brooklyn Bridge.

At the end of the movie when Winston is supposedly blasted by the backfire of Fagin's motorcycle, he may appear to be clean just before revealing the dirt at the final scene. In truth he does get dirty, but the image is so small in the split second when Fagin took off that it is hard to catch without paying close attention. This could also only be presented in the DVD version. See more
