"Dedicated to Our Friend and Collaborator, Gene Kelly", who acted as a choreography consultant (uncredited) for the film shortly before he passed away in 1996. Kelly's cement hand and footprints at the Grauman's Chinese Theater forecourt are clearly seen in the opening musical number in Hollywood as a tribute (even though he didn't place his there until 1969).

When Sawyer is explaining to Danny about how people don't care about the animals talents in Stage 13 after the rehearsal, during the conversation the shadow on Sawyer changes from curved in one frame, when it cuts to Danny and back to her, it is then straight. See more »
I hear Farley Wink gets good parts for animals.
If you call hanging from a hook a good part.

Having grown slightly weary of Disney's modern formula, I was pleasantly surprised to find an animated movie that didn't try to be something BIG. The formula was fresh and original, despite the fact that the premise is as old as time, and the songs were jazzy and finger snapping. All in all, this was a fun movie. Fun and high energy. There was also not one single weak character. No stupid sidekicks here. Everybody makes the experience enjoyable. And the humor is priceless. They also managed to make the story thoughtful and even touching while still keeping the movie light and fun. Great direction. Great music. Great animation. Overall, just a great movie. Surprising for a WB movie. This movie came out the same year as Disney's own Hercules, but this is many times better.
