* ''Cinderella'' was the very last of the "Untouchables" to get a release on DVD, in the middle of the ''Walt Disney Platinum Editions'' series in 2005 (the VHS copy in this series was one of the last VHS tapes Disney created.) It had been released twice prior to that as part of the original ''Walt Disney Classics'' line and the ''Walt Disney Masterpiece Collection'' (the latter hit stores 10 years before the ''Platinum Edition'' version did.)

* HeyItsThatGuy: Most TV remakes of musicals are meant to invoke this trope. This is no exception.

!!The 2013 Broadway production of the Rodgers and Hammerstein version contains examples of:
* HeyItsThatGuy: Adorkable Prince dressed in white, riding a horse with a yellow-themed name that is AscendedFanon [[note]]Hans rides Sitron and Topher rides Buttercup[[/note]], who will get his kingdom after marriage to/association with ladies with rather similar names: Ella, Elsa and Anna, played by Santino Fontana? [[Disney/{{Frozen}} Hans,]] is that you?

* [[HeyItsThatGuy Hey, It's That Girl!]]: JulieAndrews played Cinderella eight years before starring in the film version of Rodgers' and Hammerstein's ''Theatre/TheSoundOfMusic''. King Maximilian's actor, Howard Lindsay, also happened to become co-writer of the original Broadway version of ''Sound of Music''.



* HeyItsThatVoice: Pat Carroll, who plays one of the stepsisters, would later play another fairy tale villain (Ursula the Sea Witch) in Disney's ''Disney/TheLittleMermaid''.
** Dubbing singers Bill Lee [[note]]the singing voice of Captain Von Trapp in ''Film/TheSoundOfMusic''[[/note]] and Betty Noyes [[note]]the uncredited singer of "Baby Mine" from ''Disney/{{Dumbo}}''[[/note]] play townspeople during the "Prince Is Giving a Ball" number.

* HeyItsThatVoice: When you pay attention on who did the voices for the original film and sequels, you realize that Anastasia went from sounding like an evil [[WesternAnimation/TheSmurfs Smurfette]] (Lucille Bliss) to a nervous and socially awkward Babs Bunny (Creator/TressMacNeille).
** Lady Tremaine is THE MISTRESS OF ALL EVIL ([[Disney/SleepingBeauty Eleanor Audley]] in the first film, [[VideoGame/KingdomHearts Susanne Blakeslee]] in the second and third) and [[Series/GreenAcres Oliver Wendell Douglas]]'s mother (movie #1 only).
** Believe it or not, the female narrator at the start of the film is [[Disney/OneHundredAndOneDalmatians Cruella de Vil]].
** Creator/FrankWelker provided the voice for Lucifer in both sequels. Creator/JuneForay voiced Lucifer in the first film.
** Ironically enough, Cinderella in the modern sequels, (and in ''Franchise/KingdomHearts'') is voiced by Creator/JenniferHale who is [[Franchise/MassEffect most]] [[VideoGame/MetroidPrime known]] for her ActionGirl [[PlayingAgainstType roles]].
** Lady Tremaine is [[WesternAnimation/TheFairlyOddparents Wanda]] in the sequels, which makes her getting her hands on the Fairy Godmother's wand in the third film rather humorous when you think about it.
** The Fairy Godmother in the sequels is (the current voice of) Minnie Mouse.
** The Mice Jaq and Gus as well as Bruno the Dog were WesternAnimation/ChipAndDale, [[Disney/AliceInWonderland The Dormouse]], [[Disney/TheRescuers Evinrude the Dragonfly]], and WesternAnimation/MickeyMouse.

* The 1988 ''Classics'' VHS/Betamax tape starts with the 1984 white-and-red F.B.I. warning screens, then is the first tape in a while to have a trailer, specifically, the theatrical trailer for ''Disney/OliverAndCompany''. It then becomes the first tape to play the [[{{Irony}} classic]] Sorcerer Mickey ''Walt Disney Classics'' logo (which was a remake of the 1986 Walt Disney Home Video logo; this version had a sheen on the logo's diamond and letters and a gradient blue background; the next tape would make the diamond black on the inside and the background blue) as well as one of the first tapes to carry the Walt Disney Pictures logo (the 1985 version with a blue tint). The film's opening credits and then the film itself then play. The demo tape (which is REALLY rare) retains the 1984 warnings, but has no trailer and plays the 1984 "Cheesy Diamond" ''The Classics: Walt Disney Home Video'' logo instead; it's still followed by the 1985 Walt Disney Pictures logo before the movie starts (this was the last appearance of the "Cheesy Diamond" logo on a new tape).

* A handful of the 1995 ''Masterpiece Collection'' clamshells may accidentally contain the original 1988 ''Classics'' tape, which retained everything including the ''Oliver & Company'' trailer (that movie was reissued in theaters that November.) The ''Masterpiece'' version has the 1991 '''green''' F.B.I. warnings inside a white outline, a series of ads and trailers, the lilac-blue cursive handwriting Feature Presentation logo, the main ''Walt Disney Masterpiece Collection'' logo with ''Disney/PeterPan's'' Tinker Bell, the 1990 version of the Walt Disney Pictures logo, the Buena Vista logo, which was in place of the RKO Radio Pictures logo, though the music over that was restored, then the opening credits, then the film.

* HollywoodToneDeaf: Rhoda Williams seems to have had a more pleasant singing voice than that she used for Drizella, if her rendition of "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j47f9toG3oU&t=6m15s There's a Great Big Beautiful Tomorrow]]" (heard in the Carousel of Progress prior to its relocation from Disneyland to Walt Disney World) provides indication.

** Originally Cinderella had a song where she lamented her situation called "The Cinderella Work Song", which came complete with Cinderella fantasizing about multiplying herself into an army of maids to take on her ever growing work load.

** Originally Cinderella had a song where she lamented her situation called "The Cinderella Work Song", which came complete with Cinderella fantasizing about multiplying herself into an army of maids to take on her ever growing work load. Parts of this were clearly adapted into the "Sing Sweet Nightingale" segment with a dozen singing Cinderellas reflected in the soap bubbles.
