I thought it would be fun to start a thread with people leaving interesting facts that are not very well known about any Disney movies.

Here's mine.....

Did you know that the narrative voice in the beginning of Cinderella is the same person that was the voice for Cruella Deville in 101 Dalmations?

When Mickey "debuted" in Steamboat Willie, he had black hands. They were later changed to white gloved hands to show up better against his white body.

I always knew he went from black to white, but I never really knew there was a specific reason.

That's been a Peter Pan tradition since J.M. Barrie first wrote the original play.

The actor who plays Mr. Darling also plays Capt. Hook.

Just an urban legend.

It doesn't spell out "sex" -- but it does spells out "SFX" (for Special Visual Effects, the unit that animated that sequence). They thought they were being cute and didn't realize the controversy that would be created.

Here's some Toy Story 2 trivia: In the opening of Toy Story 2, Buzz is flying through an alien landscape on his way to infiltrate Zurg's fortress. That landscape is actually a redressed Ant Island from "it's a bug's life". The tree that was on Ant Island also appears in Toy Story 2 in the flashback scene with Jesse. And the toy repairman in TS2 is actually Geri from the Pixar short film "Geri's Game".

Great thread. I love this sort of stuff. I figure, I should start from the beginning, so here are some fun facts from Snow White -

- Some of the people involved in Snow White thought the name Dopey was too modern for the classic fairy tale, and felt the characters name should be changed. Walt Disney managed to change their minds by convincing them all that Shakespeare had once used the word in one of his plays. Of course, no reference to this word has ever been found in any of his works.

- To give Snow White a more natural look, some of the ink and paint artists started applying their own rouge on her cheeks. When Walt Disney asked one how they would apply the rouge correctly for each cell, she responded, "What do you think we've been doing all our lives?"

- When the film premiered at New York's Radio City Music Hall, all the velvet upholstery on the seats needed to be changed after the first engagement was over. It seems that the sequence when Snow White gets lost in the forest was so frightening to the young viewers, that many of them wet their pants during the film.


So, there's a few for now. More to come. There are plenty of films to cover here...

Peter Pan had two notable "lasts":
1) This was the final Disney film in which all nine members of the Nine Old Men worked together on it as directing animators.
2) It was the last full-length Disney animated film distributed by RKO. All of Disney's films after early 1954 would be distributed by Buena Vista, as well as all of the post-1954 re-releases of his earlier films.

This is a great thread

I only discovered this because my DD8 has taken to asking about the actors in every single movie we see, but:

The voice of Jim Crow (!) in Dumbo (he sings "If I See an Elephant Fly") is the same man who was Jiminy Cricket in Pinocchio (and a number of the TV shows), Cliff "Ukulele Ike" Edwards.

That's the most difficult thing I've ever posted, because I can't spell "Ukulele", "Jiminy", or "Pinocchio". :rotfl:

I'm hoping when the DVD comes out for Enchanted, that there's a "Find The References" feature. There are probably dozens of references to other Disney movies (they eat at the Bella Notte cafe, for example). There's a list in the Wikipedia article on the movie.

Jodi Benson? IMDB claims Mary Kay Bergman and Kath Soucie voiced the Bimbettes.

However... 5'2" 92 lb. actress Sherri Stoner served as the live-action model for both Belle and Ariel. Some of her mannerisms -- brushing aside her hair and biting her lip -- even wound up being worked into the animation. Ms. Stoner would later go on to work at Warner on Animaniacs and Tiny Toon adventures as a writer, producer, and voice talent (she voiced Slappy Squirrel).

Here is a few from my favorite Disney animated movie, Aladdin:

John Candy, Steve Martin and Eddie Murphy were all considered at one point to provide the voice of the Genie.

In the original folktale, Aladdin is actually Chinese

Whenever Aladdin tells a lie, the plume on his hat falls and covers his face

When Aladdin asks Genie if he can make him into a prince, and Genie consults his "cookbook", one of the things he pulls out of the book is Sebastian from The Little Mermaid

Lea Salonga, who is the voice of Mulan is also the signing voice for Jasmine.

Speaking of Eddie Murphy...

In "The Haunted Mansion", the first words spoken are "Welcome, Foolish Mortals!" This line of dialogue was not taken from the venerable attraction, but was spoken by actor Corey Burton, who also voices the Ghost Host during "Happy HalloWishes" and "The Haunted Mansion Holiday".

The chairs used in the Dining Room scene in "The Haunted Mansion" were used for the final scene in Disney's re-imagineered Pirates of the Caribbean attraction (it's the chair Jack Sparrow is reclining on while he hoists a goblet of rum).

The Pipe Organ in the Mansion's ballroom in Disneyland was used in the 1955 classic Disney film "20,000 Leagues Under the Sea". The organ at WDW's mansion is an exact replica created by MAPO (Disney's Manufacturing And Production Offices).

"Blackbeard's Ghost" was the film in production when Walt Disney died. The spellbook in Madame Leota's Seance Room displays a spell used in that film ("A spell to bring to your eyes and ears one who is bound in Limbo," followed by Kree Kruh Vergo Gebba Kalto Kree).

If any of you have watched "Step by Step". the friend of one of the older brother falls in love with Dana, the oldest sister, he is the voice of MAX on the "Goofy Movie."

The actor that plays Marcias husband on the Very Brady Christmas is the very popular voice of "Now coming to Disney DVD.." and the voice of the Disney Movie Club.

Amy Adams from Enchanted was Jim's girlfriend for a couple of episodes of Season 2 of the OFFICE.

I will think of more...

01-30-2008, 04:56 PM
All of these come from the trivia pages of imdb.com:

Pirates of the Caribbean: Curse of the Black Pearl

- "According to the DVD commentaries, Geoffrey Rush has a theory that people watch the screen from left to right, just like when they read a book. Therefore, he tried to be in the left side of the screen as often as possible. He was particularly intent on doing this in the scenes with the monkey and Keira Knightley because he didn't think anyone would look at him otherwise."

- "The substance sprayed on William Turner after the sword fight between him and Captain Jack Sparrow is actually powdered chocolate."

- "Johnny Depp wore contact lenses which served as sunglasses so he wouldn't be squinting in the sun all the time."

Beauty and the Beast

- "Art director Brian McEntee color keyed Belle so that she is the only person in her town who wears blue. This is symbolic of how different she is from everyone else around. Later, she encounters the Beast, another misfit, also wearing blue."

- "Chip is the only object in the movie to mention Belle by her name. All of the other objects refer to her as 'mademoiselle,' 'she,' 'her,' 'the girl,' etc."

- "Angela Lansbury, the voice of Mrs. Potts, thought that another character would be better suited to sing the ballad 'Beauty and the Beast.' The director asked her to make at least one recording to have for a back up if nothing else worked, and that one recording ended up in the film."

- "Robby Benson's voice was altered by the growls of real panthers and lions so that it is virtually unrecognizable. This is why near the end when the Beast transforms into the prince his voice changes. His voice is also not changed on the original motion picture soundtrack."

Scott Weinger who does the voice of Aladdin also played Steve (DJ's Boyfriend) in Full House.
In The Full House episode where they go to WDW you can see Steve dressed as Aladdin.

When Gaston falls from the castle if you freeze frame while he's falling you can see that they put a skull and crossbones in his each of his eyes. You can only see this for about a second so you have to watch closely. I learned that from the DVD commentary.

Seeing as how the NAACP has stated publically that they have no plans to protest a possible DVD release of Song of the South, I'm gonna have to call shenanigans on this one.

Yeah, I can't find anything online that supports this claim. Not to mention that DL's Splash Mountain opened on July 17, 1989. Not the 90's. ;)

I think your Mulan reference is wrong, the gal who played Mulan was from E.R.- I dont know her name, but I know it isnt Lea. Anyone else know?

Her name is Ming Na', I believe. But I didn't think she was the singing voice, just the speaking voice. The pp has the actress who did the singing correct, I believe.

If my memory serves me correctly, there was a short movie with Walter Conkite (sp?) and Robin Williams at the "Art of Animation" tour at MGM Studios. In this short film, Walter is doing a "man on the street" report in WDW, and Robin is a guest in the park taking pictures. Robin is then changed into a animated Lost Boy from Peter pan. I think that Robin is wearing the same outfit that Genie changes into when he becomes free, at the end of Aliddin.

Anyone else remember this film??

Sorry to get OT, but when did they do away with this film?
We were just at WDW, after an over 12 year hiatus and we were disappointed to see that this had been replaced.:confused:

Ming-Na (or as she was known back then, Ming-Na Wen) was the speaking voice for Mulan. For the singing voice of Mulan, Lea Salonga provided the voice. So, you're both right.

Enjoy the Magic!

I actually have a copy of this. It's not as strange as it sounds, just more or less a typical health film that Disney produced back in the day. In fact, the strangest thing about it might be its opening title cards:

It's available on Youtube: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4kWR-rIKRe4
Some of the animation reminded me of Fantasia, not sure why--maybe some of the same animators worked on it? No animation credits, though.

Yep. Eleanor Audley. She also voiced Lady Tremaine in Cinderella.

Eleanor Audley also was auditioned as a possible Ghost Host, but ultimately that role went to Paul Fries, who's also featured in POTC and is the voice of Ludwig von Drake.


The Pipe Organ in the Mansion's ballroom in Disneyland was used in the 1955 classic Disney film "20,000 Leagues Under the Sea". The organ at WDW's mansion is an exact replica created by MAPO (Disney's Manufacturing And Production Offices).

"Blackbeard's Ghost" was the film in production when Walt Disney died. The spellbook in Madame Leota's Seance Room displays a spell used in that film ("A spell to bring to your eyes and ears one who is bound in Limbo," followed by Kree Kruh Vergo Gebba Kalto Kree).

A little more about the inspiration for the HM film....When the interior sets for original DL HM were being constructed for an Aug. '69 opening, the powers that be at that time decided to include the HM in the opening attraction line-up for WDW (Oct '71 opening), so the imagineering team made a duplicate set of everything and put it in storage until it was time to ship to FL for installation on-site. As a result, the HM was the first fully installed and ready to operate attraction at WDW.

The stretching gallery is the same in concept at both DL and WDW, but opposite in execution. At DL the ceiling remains stationary and the floor descends to a basement level corridor to move guests underneath the railroad berm and outside the park into the show building where the doom buggy part of the attraction resides - at WDW the floor remains stationary and the ceiling rises. Operationally there was no need to get guests underneath the train since the mansion resides nowhere near the train. The show building in FL simply is behind the mansion and a bunch of trees. The stretching gallery was considered but left out of the film.

The HM is the only attraction to reside in a different land in each park it's been built - at DL in New Orleans Square; at WDW in Liberty Square; at Tokyo DL in Fantasyland, and at DL Paris in Frontierland. If it ever lands at Hong Kong, it'll be interesting to see where it ends up.


Mrs. Potts was played by Angela Lansbury, who also starred in Bedknobs and Broomsticks about 15 years earlier.

The bird that Julie Andrews holds in the nursery scene in Mary Poppins is an audio-animatronic one, just like those that live in The Enchanted Tiki Room.

The bird that Julie Andrews holds in the nursery scene in Mary Poppins is an audio-animatronic one, just like those that live in The Enchanted Tiki Room.

Ben Wright was the actor who voiced Grimsby, Prince Eric's valet, in "The Little Mermaid". While he was recording his lines, he casually mentioned that he also voiced Roger Ratcliff in "101 Dalmatians" -- something nobody involved in the production had been aware of until that moment!

It also bears mentioning that Mary Poppins was said to be Walt's favorite film because it combined so many things he was fond of -- live-action, musicals, animation, and audio-animatronics.

Some more Poppins-fresh trivia:

The song "The Beautiful Briny" was written for the film but never used. The Shermans later recycled it for "Bedknobs and Broomsticks".

To this day, Mary Poppins has never been "returned to the Disney Vault" since it was released on home video 1981, making it the longest continuosly released film in the Disney Home Video library (it was also the first Disney film to be released on DVD).

PL Travers, the author of Mary Poppins, was supposedly very difficult to work with and hated the final cut of the film (she was supposedly furious at the film's ending where Mrs Banks gives up protesting as a suffragette in order to become a stay-at-home mother, claiming it was anti-feminist).

What a fun thread!

In the fight song of Pocahontas the villagers sang, "Lets go kill a few, men", when it came out on video they changed it to, "Lets go get a few, men".

In the original parent trap you can see half of Haley's arm disappear a few times during the song Lets get together.

In Bambi, after the fire, there is a mother racoon (I think) licking her baby and then suddenly she is still licking but the baby is gone.

In the Lindsay Lohan version of the parent trap the woman who played Vicky in the first version plays the mother of the girl's father's fiance. She says, "You may call me Aunt Vicky".

You can see Heimlich in Toy Story- I think it's Toy Story 2 but I can't remember for sure.

Toy Story 2.. A Bug's Life was still in the concept phase when Toy Story was being worked on.

In the beginning of Toy Story 2, the alien canyon Video-Game-Buzz is flying through is Ant Island from A Bug's Life.

The beaten-up yellow "YO" Pizza Planet delivery pickup truck from Toy Story has appeared in every Pixar film since.

In the classic Disney film "20,000 Leagues Under the Sea", the Nautilus' skiff was made of wood, painted to look like metal, and had to be weighted with sandbags to look heavy in the water. When towing it to the cannibals' island, the crew took the sandbags out to make their job easier, and they forgot to put them back in. When filming the scene where Ned and Conseil get in the boat to row away from the cannibals, Kirk Douglas expected the boat to be low in the water. He didn't lower the oars far enough to catch the water, and when he started to row, he fell on his back. Director Richard Fleischer thought the shot was so funny he left it in the film. When Ned starts to row, he clearly tips back, and his legs shoot up in the air.

Love all of these! There are a few that I didn't see.

-In the VHS version of Aladdin, during the balcony scene where Aladdin appears on the balcony to speak to Jasmine, they are not focusing on Aladdin but you can hear him in the background talking to Raja. He [I]clearly [I] says "nice teenagers, take off your clothes". In the DVD version, that is not there.

-Also in Aladdin on the VHS version. The song "Arabian Nights" the line "where they cut off your ear if they don't like your face" was changed for "it's flat and imense and the heat is intense" on the re-release.

Another Aladdin tid bit... If you watch the Aladdin King of Thieves previews Aladdin has blood on his clothes when he is in the home of the 40 thieves yet in the actual film there isn't any blood. Not important at all, I just remembered it. LOL

That website that debunks rumors, has proved this rumor to be false. what many people believed was a sign of excitement, was actually the priests boney knees. This is clearly visable in the scene where Ursula looks over her right shoulder at Scuttle and his "airforce" come swooping down on her.

However... 5'2" 92 lb. actress Sherri Stoner served as the live-action model for both Belle and Ariel. Some of her mannerisms -- brushing aside her hair and biting her lip -- even wound up being worked into the animation. Ms. Stoner would later go on to work at Warner on Animaniacs and Tiny Toon adventures as a writer, producer, and voice talent (she voiced Slappy Squirrel).

This is kinda random and off topic...

My parents lived in L.A. in the late 70s/early 80s, and my mom was best friends with Sherri Stoner. They met in an acting class, and quickly became good friends. They even used to go on auditions together and other stuff. My mom has always these great stories about Sherri. Sherri was such a petite woman that she had to buy clothes in the children's section of many stores, for example. At the age of about 25, the ages she auditioned for were typically around 14 years old. Unfortunately, over the years since my parents moved back to Alabama, they have lost touch.

My parents had moved back to Alabama before Sherri got Ariel, but they were still writing to each other. My mom has some interesting stories about what Sherri told her about the process. For example, she was thrilled to have a job that required relatively little work but paid really well. She just had to go in for about a week a month and this lasted for a long time. She also was not really informed what the job was going to entail, and she was shocked when she ended up in a huge watertank so they could see how her hair moved underwater. The thing about how she moved her hair and bit her lip is def true - my mom mentions it when she watches the movie.

I was a huge fan of the little mermaid as a child, and I got to talk to Sherri on the phone once. I thought it was Ariel, and I asked her to send me Flounder's photograph (I was 5). She said she would, but I still haven't gotten it!!! :rotfl:

I love having random Disney collections like these!!! :)

Chip originally had only one line, but the producers liked Bradley Pierce's voice so much that extra dialogue and business was written and storyboarded for the character.

The original "cute" character of the movie was a music box, which was supposed to be a musical version of Dopey from Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs (1937). But when the character Chip's role was expanded, the music box idea was scrapped. However the music box can be seen for a brief moment on a table next to Lumière just before the fight between the enchanted objects and the villagers in the Beast's home

A song sung by the enchanted objects entitled "Human Again" was cut before production started. The song was later added to the Disney on Ice and theatrical productions and was recorded and animated for the 2001 Imax re-release. It was also added to the special edition released in October 8th 2002, making the movie a bit longer.

Art director Brian McEntee color keyed Belle so that she is the only person in her town who wears blue. This is symbolic of how different she is from everyone else around. Later, she encounters the Beast, another misfit, also wearing blue.

When Beast and Gaston are having their life-or-death struggle on the castle, Gaston yells, "Belle is mine!" Originally he was supposed to say, "Time to die!" but the writer changed it to fit Belle back in the scene.

Chip is the only object in the movie to mention Belle by her name. All of the other objects refer to her as "mademoiselle," "she," her, "the girl," etc.

The dance between Belle and her Prince in the finale is actually reused animation of the dance between Princess Aurora and Prince Phillip in Sleeping Beauty (1959). The original Sleeping Beauty (1959) pair had been drawn over to become the new Beauty and the Beast (1991) pair, and this was done because they were running out of time during the production of the movie.

Angela Lansbury, the voice of Mrs. Potts, thought that another character would be better suited to sing the ballad "Beauty and the Beast". The director asked her to make at least one recording to have for a back up if nothing else worked, and that one recording ended up in the film.

Julie Andrews was considered for the role of Mrs. Potts

Among the trophy heads on Gaston's tavern is what appears to be a frog's head, visible in the scene where Gaston spits.

The smoke seen during the transformation of the Beast to the Prince is actually real smoke, not animated. It was originally used in The Black Cauldron (1985) and was re-used for Beauty and the Beast (1991).

Many of paintings on the walls of the castle are undetailed versions of famous paintings

Songs take up twenty-five minutes of the film and only five minutes were without any musical score at all

Caricatures of the directors, Kirk Wise and Gary Trousdale, can be seen in the scene where Belle is given the book as a gift. As she is leaving the store three men are seen pretending to not look through the window and then they sing, "Look there she goes. The girl who's so peculiar. I wonder if she's feeling well." They are the two men on the outside of the large blonde man.

Robby Benson's voice was altered by the growls of real panthers and lions so that it is virtually unrecognizable. This is why near the end when the Beast transforms into the prince his voice changes. His voice is also not changed on the original motion picture soundtrack.

Many scenes were storyboarded but never animated. Those include a scene where Gaston visits the Asylum and a scene where the Beast is seen dragging a carcass of an animal he killed. Both where considered too gruesome for the film and the ideas were dropped.

The majority of the sculptures seen in the castle are different earlier versions of the Beast.

In the beginning the Beast is more monster than man. He walks on all fours, leaps across whole balconies, and his wardrobe is not complete. At the same time Gaston starts off as a man and slowly becomes more of a monster.

Disney was originally going to have Jodi Benson, the voice of Ariel in The Little Mermaid (1989) also provide the voice for Belle. However, it was decided that Belle needed a more "European" sounding voice. Howard Ashman remembered working with Paige O'Hara and suggested she try out for the part.

When Paige O'Hara was auditioning, a bit of her hair flew in her face and she tucked it back. The animators liked this so they put it in the movie.

The stained glass window that is seen at the very end of the movie was built in Disneyland after the film's release.

The name of Gaston's sidekick, Lefou, pronounces just like the French words meaning "the idiot, "the fool" or "the insane

Rupert Everett auditioned for the role of Gaston, but was told by the directors he didn't sound arrogant enough. He remembered this when he voiced Prince Charming in Shrek 2 (2004).

Though the Beast/Prince is never mentioned by name in the film, it is revealed by the CD-ROM game The D Show that his name is Adam.

In the first song, where Belle sings in the town, she sits by a fountain. As she reads the book (described earlier, as an adventure with a prince in disguise. It sounds just like Beauty and the Beast), she flips to a page, with a picture. Look closely, and you will see see that she is in the bottom right, the beast in the middle left, and the prince's castle in the middle

Among Gaston's trophy display heads is that of a bald eagle it is most visible during the scene in which he jumps onto his chair during his song.

SPOILER: When Gaston is falling at the very end, there is close-up of his eyes. For a few frames a tiny skull flashes in each of his eyes. In the theatrical release, as Gaston plunged to his implied death and his face filled the screen, two frames showed skulls in his eyes. For the VHS and laserdisc release, these frames were altered to remove the skulls from his eyes. However, no such alteration was made for the DVD release.

SPOILER: Originally the Beast was supposed to be stabbed by Gaston twice: once in the leg and again in the side, followed by Gaston pushing himself off the tower and laughing maniacally while falling. The filmmakers changed it to just his side to avoid the already dramatic scene becoming too disturbing for children, but Gaston's edited suicide is a probable explanation for his choosing such a dangerous position to kill the Beast despite knowing that he would never win Belle's heart.

When Gaston tries to kiss Belle, and she opens the door, Gaston goes flying out into the mud in front of the house. But Belle's front door is on the side of the porch, not facing the mud.
When Belle first enters the dungeon, her father is holding out his arm through one of the middle spaces in the cell door. In the close up shot, his arm is protruding from the left hand space.
When Mrs. Potts runs over Cogsworth to serve Maurice tea, she, Chip, a sugar cup and cream cup are on the cart. However, when it stops by the chair, it's just her and Chip. Then, a few shots later, as Maurice is saying hello to Chip, a spoon is on the tray.
During the "Kill the Beast" song, the snow on the porch caps disappears and re-appears between shots.
Right before Gaston starts singing "Kill the Beast" when he is talking to the villagers the numbers change from a small number to a large crowd in between shots. Also, they move from far away to up close and all around.
During the opening song, as Belle walks through the town reading her book, her basket disappears from her arm, only to re-appear a few seconds later.
After the Gaston song, the bear rug moves from behind the chair to under the chair.
After Gaston shoots the bird, LeFou puts it in his hunting bag, but his bag disappears as he goes to pick up the larger carcass.
Gaston's chair disappears from in front of the fire in the closing shots of Gaston's song.
When Belle's father is about to be taken away to the asylum, Belle's white apron disappears for a few moments, and then reappears seconds later.
After Gaston has shot the beast, the arrows in the quiver on his back disappear and then reappear in the next shot.
When Le Fou is chasing the "dog" he is missing a shoe, which is in the dog's mouth, but when Le Fou and his buddies bust through the door his shoe is on. When they get scared away his shoe is missing again.
Before Gaston attempts to propose to Belle, he kicks off his boots. But while he is walking around the house, distinct footsteps and jingles are heard, implying he has boots on.
During the fighting scene between Gaston and Beast, Gaston says "Belle is mine!" But his mouth is saying something else. This is because, he was originally supposed to say, "Time to die!" but the writer changed it to fit Belle back in the scene.
Following Belle's title song reprise on the hilltop and just after Phillipe interrupts her moment, she says "Phillipe!" though her lip movements suggest that other dialogue was intended.

When the beast slams the door to the west wing in anger of Belle's refusal to come out of her room, a piece of celing plaster falls on Lumiere, Cogsworth, and Mrs. Potts, scattering pieces about the place. In the next overhead shot, all of the plaster is gone.
When Cogsworth falls down the stairs, all sorts of gears and nuts fall out, but in the next shot, seconds later, they are gone.
In the shot of Belle riding up to the Beast's castle for the first time, her hood is down. In the close-up shot immediately following it, her hood is up.
On the Special Edition, at exactly one hour and three minutes, just for a second, Mrs. Potts' eyes turn black and then turn back to blue.
When Belle is first greeted by Lumiere he takes her hand and kisses it. As the shots go back and forth you will see the flame on his candle is lit in one scene and not in another.
When Belle and the Beast are having breakfast together, before the beast catches the spoon his face is dirty. When he catches the spoon his face is clean, and when he tries to eat with the spoon his face becomes dirty again. Finally, when he eats right from the plate, as Belle does, his face is clean again.
Belle's nails disappear and reappear several times throughout the movie.
In one scene during the Gaston song, Gaston shoots his gun 3 times, but in the next scene 5 holes appear.

During the first song, Belle reads a book near a fountain, and show us a picture of a castle from it. Later, Gaston scans through the same book and says there are no pictures in it.

In the beginning of the movie before Belle starts singing, you can see the steps go down and lead to a path heading to the village. Although when Gaston comes to purpose to her, the steps go down to a path to the barn. Later when Gaston and others come to take Maurice to the asylum it faces straight to the village.
In the song Gaston when Gaston sings "when I was a lad I ate four dozen eggs, every morning to help me get large" he grabs the eggs and swallows them whole. Lafou attempts the same to only have them fall on his face. After he says "so I'm roughly the size of a barge!" and shoots his gun you can see a bowl of eggs on the counter.
During the transformation all close ups of Belle have her hair worn down on her shoulder, yet in the next shot her hair is worn in a ponytail, then back to down.
During the first song, in the town all the shops have their French names on the signs, i.e. The bakery is the "boulangerie" - except for the bookstore. Its sign reads in English as "Bookseller".

In the opening musical number we see Belle's home. The windmill on the house has 2 gears that are clearly working against one another, yet they still turn perfectly.

When the Beast transforms back to his human form, we see the camera focus to his feet being transformed back to a human foot, then for a split-second we can see the beast's hands still on their 'beast' form. This was considered a mistake because his hands transformed first.

It's true, there are a few videos of it on youtube slowed down so you can hear it. Once word got out that it was there Disney quickly edited it out so now any copy you buy will not have that saying in it. If you have an old VHS version it's most likely there.

Nonsense.

Aladdin clearly says "C'mon, good kitty... take off and go."

(At least, that's what I hear during the film)

Sadly the quote where Aladdin says "teenagers take of your clothes" is there. There are a few videos of it on youtube slowed down so you can hear it. Once word got out that it was there Disney quickly edited it out so now any copy you buy will not have that saying in it. If you have an old VHS version it's most likely there. The quote is only in the very early released films. Some VHS versions don't have it. I don't know for sure but I do believe that Disney recalled most of the Aladdin films that were out, edited out the quote and released it again, but they obviously couldn't get back the films that had already been sold with the quote in it.

I didn't think I had one, but I do!

In The Lion King 2, at the scene where Kiara is trying to save Kovu's mother (can't remember her name), it was originally drawn as a suicide scene. When Kiara tells her to take her paw, she originally looked at Kiara and said, 'No.' and then after she lets go of the cliff, smiling as she plunges to her death. They thought this would be too much for children so they made it look like an accident by putting in already drawn scenes, but she is still kinda smiling when she dies.

In Enchanted during the song "How Do You Know" there is a group of eldery men who dance, one of them (in a yellow jacket) was a chimney sweep in Mary Poppins :)
