    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?

    My friend told me that the voice of Madame Leota in the crystal ball in the Haunted Mansion, is the voice of Maleficent in Sleeping Beauty.

    Cool!

    I don't know how "unknown" this is but...
    The same man (Hans Conried) is the voice of both Mr Darling & Captain Hook in Peter Pan.

    Cool thread idea! Here's mine:

    In Mary Poppins, many of the other applicants for the nanny position were actually men dressed in drag.

    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.

    Did you know Belle makes a cameo appearence in The Hunchback of Notre Dame?

    During the song Out there when they show the courtyard, there she is with her blue dress and of course her nose buried in a book :rotfl:

    Here's one. The monkey actually swears in Alladin. You have to listen for it but it is when the rocks start disappearing into the lava. I love it...luckily the kids haven't noticed. :rolleyes1

    At the end of Monsters Inc, when Sully is in Boo's room - he has a nemo stuffed animal (the movie wasn't' out yet). I think there is a similar trailer on another pixar movie -anyone know it?

    I'm really bad with these, but I thought that in Nemo, there was a Toy Story reference that was very brief.

    In finding nemo there is one shot of the dentist office and laying on the floor is a buzz light year action figure

    In The Hunchback of Notre Dame
    During the song Out there when they show the courtyard
    the Lion King's Pumbaa is being carried by two men with a pole, and a street merchant is shaking out the flying carpet from Aladdin.

    A photo of a naked lady can be seen in The Rescuers.

    Disney produced an animated film called The Story of Menstruation.I read these facts on another website that deals with urban legends.

    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.

    I think the voices of Alice in Alice in Wonderland and Wendy in Peter Pan were the same actress, were they not?

    Yes, Kathryn Beaumont. She reprised both roles for the "Kingdom Hearts" video game and provided the voice for Alice in several "House of Mouse" episodes. :thumbsup2

    The word "sex" clearly appears in the night sky during a scene of The Lion King. It's the scene where adult Simba walks away from Timon and Pumba, clearly upset, and flops down on the ground, and it kicks up dust.
