The Princess and the Frog (2009) (Video Game)
This is a video game based on the feature film.


Cinderella (1922) (Short)
When Prince Naveen, in frog form, speaks to Tiana and she backs into Charlotte's bookcase, one of the toys you see fall down is a stuffed Cinderella doll.
Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs (1937)
The confusion of the alligators as logs.
Coal Black and de Sebben Dwarfs (1943) (Short)
One of the influences for the film that involves a African American version of a classic fairy tale.
Cinderella (1950)
The pumpkin coach is seen as one of young Tiana's toys.
A Streetcar Named Desire (1951)
Stella is the name of Charlotte's dog; also Tiana's exit from the streetcar.
Lady and the Tramp (1955)
Naveen and Tiana getting their tongues tangled.
Cat on a Hot Tin Roof (1958)
Charlotte calls her father "Big Daddy"
Sleeping Beauty (1959)
Charlotte and Naveen-Laurence's dance at the ball mirrors Aurora's dance with Prince Philip.
The Sword in the Stone (1963)
Louis pulls apart some hanging swamp moss and his eyes have manic swirls in them like Mad Madam Mim's hair and eyes.
The Jungle Book (1967)
Both are Disney cartoons with singing animals named Louis who want to be humans
The AristoCats (1970)
Charlotte's cat is similar to Marie from this film; One of the party patrons voluntarily spills his drinks after seeing the frogs being chased by the dog, similar how a character in The Aristocats reacted after seeing cats being chased by a mouse.
Live and Let Die (1973)
Several references involving Dr. Facilier
Robin Hood (1973)
Mama Odie's snake resembles Sir Hiss. In particular, the way she straightens the snake to make a cane is very similar to Prince John choking Sir Hiss for criticism.
The Rescuers (1977)
The musical alligator Louis shadows Brutus and Nero, the organ-playing alligators in the Disney classic.
The Little Mermaid (1989)
A float of King Triton is in the Mardi Gras parade near the end.; one of the guests at the masquerade ball is dressed as Ariel.
Beauty and the Beast (1991)
A doll resembling Belle is seen among young Tiana's toys.
Aladdin (1992)
During the main title card, the carpet is being shaken out a window; Mama Odie also tosses aside the Genie's lamp during the "Dig a Little Deeper" number. One of the Mardi Gras Parade floats is modeled after Jafar, and one of the masquerade ball guests is dressed as Jasmine.
The Lion King (1994)
Ray believes Evangeline to be a firefly, while Tiana says it's a burning ball of gas in the sky. This is referring to the conversation between Simba, Timone and Pumba, where Timone says the stars are fireflies "caught up in that big bluish black thing" and Pumba says they are burning balls of gas. Simba says they are the great kings of the past and (spoilers) when Ray dies, a new star is born, supporting Simba's theory that stars represent the spirits of the dead.
The Swan Princess (1994)
Naveen Frog is similar to Jean-Bob and the alligator is similar to the one that attacked Jean-Bob.
Hercules (1997)
After giving food to a soldier in the diner, Tiana's salute mirrors Meg's salute when meeting Hercules.
Anastasia (1997)
Dr. Facilier's death resembles Rasputin's demise.
The Curse of Monkey Island (1997) (Video Game)
Mama Odie's home is very similar to that of the voodoo priestess' home in this game, being a boat up a tree in a swamp. She even has a huge armchair which mimics the priestess's chair.
The Matrix (1999)
Mama Odie bares resemblence to The Oracle from The Matrix. Both are elderly black women, both seem at first to be more occupied by cooking/baking, and both have some sort of magical powers/insight that the leading characters need to obtain their goals
The Proud Family (2001) (TV Series)
Dr. Facilier resembles Oscar Proud from the show.
