Puss in Boots (2011) Poster



Jump to: Spoilers (1)
Originally planned as direct to DVD.
Antonio Banderas participated in a viral marketing event for the film by posing in photos of himself at a screening surrounded by cats.
Though it broke the box office record of the highest-grossing Halloween weekend gross of all time (previously held by Saw III (2006)), its debut was the worst for a Dreamworks Animation film since Flushed Away (2006). However, its second weekend gross gave it the record for the smallest non-holiday second weekend drop for a film in a saturated release of 2500 theaters or more.
Puss in Boots' endearing "doe-eyes" scenes are an homage to the famous Pity Kitty series by artist Gig, a popular children's illustrator in the '60s and '70s.
One of the women of San Ricardo describes Puss's boots as being made of soft, Corinthian leather. This is a reference to the Chrysler Cordoba commercial of 1975 wherein Ricardo Montalban described the seats as being made of "soft, Corinthian leather". Montalban costarred with Antonio Banderas and Salma Hayek in Spy Kids 3-D: Game Over (2003).
Puss's phrase 'Holy Frijoles' is an English/Spanish mix, 'frijoles' being the Spanish word for beans.

Mother Goose appears in the film. "Puss in Boots" was originally published as a story in the "Mother Goose Fairytales" by Charles Perrault.
