Goofs

As Danny arrives in Hollywood at the beginning of the film, the Hollywood sign can be seen. The film is set in 1939 so the sign should still read Hollywoodland as it did until 1949. See more »

Quotes

Danny: Look, if you're going to accept what they think of you, then you can leave. I almost did.
Cranston: Well, you should have. Life here for animals is the pits. We're always playing the scapegoat.
Woolie Mammoth: Quickly forgotten.
Frances: Working for scale.
Danny: Then why are you still here? Because you can't get over that feeling, can you? That feeling you get when... when you two dance together. When you play. When you sing. They cursed you, humilliated you, even slammed the door on your face, but they haven't made you forget. Have ...

Proof that movies are made from dreams.
4 November 2001 | by (UT, USA) – See all my reviews

I'll always be a hardcore Disney fan, but I can't help but have a real soft spot for movies which prove that dreams can come true. This movie about anthropomorphic characters (animals that are like people) is simply incredible- animation stylized, cute, and fun... with an incredible plot, great music (I bought the soundtrack), amazing voice talent (that includes singing!), and believable characters. This is a real keeper...and I'm surprised that it didn't get as much attention as it deserved. I'd reccomend it to anyone who's had a dream, or who has one... and those who just love cartoons.
