(1994)

Trivia

The producers generated positive ratings during test screenings by playing the Walt Disney Pictures logo at the beginning, making viewers think they were watching a Disney movie.
This was the first and only animated film to win a Razzie Award for "Worst Original Song" for "Marry the Mole" sung by Carol Channing.
Angeline Ball was the live-action reference model for Thumbelina as well as for Goldie in Rock-A-Doodle (1991) which is another Don Bluth film.
This is one of two films based on Hans Christian Andersen fairy tales to feature Jodi Benson as the titular character. The first was, more famously, The Little Mermaid (1989).
Gary Imhoff was in his early forties when he voiced the sixteen-year-old Prince Cornelius.
The film was originally scheduled to be distributed by MGM in the United States and J&M Entertainment overseas. By the time it was completed, both companies dropped the arrangement due to concerns about the bankruptcy of Bluth's studio. Warner Bros. subsequently bought the distribution rights in March 1993.

King Colbert (Kenneth Mars) comes to the defense of his son by asking Queen Tabitha (June Foray) if she remembers being sixteen. This was precisely the problem that Mars' character (King Triton) had in The Little Mermaid (1989) which also starred Jodi Benson and was similarly based on a Hans Christian Andersen fairytale.
