FernGully: The Last Rainforest (1992) Poster

Trivia

Jump to: Spoilers (1)
Robin Williams' first role in an animated film.
The "FernGully" forest depicted in the film was actually based on Australia's rainforests. The cartoonists who worked on the film spent time in the real rainforests to help inspire their drawings.
The original lyrics to the movie's song "Toxic Love", performed by Tim Curry, had obvious sexual themes/implications, and various verses from the original song were cut and/or rewritten to make the song more appropriate for a children's movie. The original lyrics can still be found but the song's full version was never used.
In Spain it was dubbed into Spanish entirely by comedian Ángel Garó, a single-handed feat that earned him entry in the Guinness Book of Records.
Elton John's first involvement in a animated feature film; he composed and performed the song "Some Other World" for the film.
Originally supposed to be released in November 1991 but the release was delayed to avoid the competition with Disney's Beauty and the Beast (1991). Instead, it was released in April 1992 and competed with Rock-A-Doodle (1991).
Robin Williams performed the "Batty Rap" himself.
Production time was greatly reduced by the use of computer animation to create elements such as flocks of birds that would have taken much longer to animate traditionally.

When Zak carves Crysta's name into a tree he only gets as far as 'Crys' before she stops him and explains the pain he is causing for the tree. Although misspelled, stressing the word 'cry' is certainly a reflection of the tree's pain.
