* AllAnimationIsDisney: This wasn't a Disney film, but Disney gives a nod to the film in ''Disney/TheLittleMermaid'' (see TheCameo below). ** The animation director was Vladimir Tytla, a former Disney animator best known for animating Chernobog on ''Disney/{{Fantasia}}''. However, his crew was made up mostly of Warner Bros. animators, including RobertMcKimson as sequence director.
