* PerpetualPoverty: The Doctor spends all his money looking after animals. Not helped by the fact that most of his clients are wild animals, who thusly pay him in foodstuffs rather than actual currency.

*** The song itself actually finishes with a few stanzas where Dolittle confesses he still yearns for meat and he hates a lot of the vegetarian food he eats... but his conscience is too strong for him to give up his vegetarian lifestyle, because the distress of his animal friends outweighs his yearning for his old diet.

* HollywoodNatives: The inhabitants of Sea Star Island initially appear to fit this trope, but it turns out to be a deliberate subversion. They are, in fact, highly educated and cultured, fluent in multiple languages, and only detain newcomers because of bad experiences with explorers. Granted, they plan to kill Doolittle's party for bringing bad fortune, but even that's done in strict accordance with their established laws.

The film had a TroubledProduction, with hundreds of animals to wrangle, location shooting troubles, and Harrison throwing his weight around. Producer Arthur P. Jacobs even had a heart attack during production (but was happy to get another pet project of his, ''PlanetOfTheApes'', greenlit by the studio). It was a critical and popular flop, but managed to score two UsefulNotes/{{Academy Award}}s, for Original Song ("Talk to the Animals") and Special Effects.
