Did You Know?

Trivia (at around 23 mins) First feature film to have a completely CGI (computer graphics image) character: the knight coming out of the stained glass window. Industrial Light & Magic animated the scene, overseen by John Lasseter in a very early film credit for Pixar. See more »
Goofs (at around 15 mins) Just before the flying machine crashes into the tree on its first flight, cables that the machine is hanging from are visible. See more »

Crazy Credits Before the end credits roll, there is a note that the film was an affectionate speculation on Sherlock Holmes' youth, and not based specifically on any of Arthur Conan Doyle's works: "Although Sir Arthur Conan Doyle did not write about the very youthful years of Sherlock Holmes and did establish the initial meeting between Holmes and Dr. Watson as adults, this affectionate speculation about what might have happened has been made with respectful admiration and in tribute to the author and his enduring works."
