The poster parodies at the end are all of movies either from Warner Bros. Studios, its subsidiary New Line Cinema, or owned by Turner Entertainment. The filmmakers originally conceived of parodies of other famous films such as The Sound of Music (1965) and Star Wars: Episode IV - A New Hope (1977), but ultimately abandoned them because it would have required paying licensing fees to the owners.

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.
