** Shrek cracks a mirror by looking into it and smiling: the scene is [[IncrediblyLamePun virtually]] identical to the same one featured in Mike Myers' ''AustinPowers'' films.

* HeyItsThatGuy: The resemblance of human Shrek to (dour Scottish) British politician UsefulNotes/GordonBrown was widely noted by the British media.
* HeyItsThatVoice: Averted -- regardless of who you think Gingi, Pinocchio, the Magic Mirror and even BigBad Rumpelstiltskin sound like, they're all voiced by animators. In a positive case of ExecutiveMeddling, the execs liked the animators' temporary voice tracks so much that they [[ThrowItIn let them "act" in the movie]].
** And in the fourth film, ''[[Series/MadMen Jon freakin' Hamm]]'' as Brogan.
** One of the major selling points in the Mexican dub was the voice of famous comedian Creator/EugenioDerbez as Donkey. While Creator/HumbertoVelez was Farquadd.
** In the Spanish dub, Shrek and Donkey were voiced by Juan Antonio Muñoz and José Mota, the members of the (now separated) popular Spanish comedy duo Cruz y Raya, which counts as this, CelebrityVoiceActor and RelationshipVoiceActor at the same time.
** Prince Charming as the fox in the first ''[[Literature/TheChroniclesOfNarnia Narnia]]'' film.
** Mike Myers' voice for Shrek greatly resembles the voice he used for another Scottish character he played: Fat Bastard from the ''Film/AustinPowers'' movies (or [[http://snl.jt.org/char.php?i=382 Andy Grey]] from the short-lived ''Saturday Night Live'' sketch, "Scottish Soccer Hooligan Weekly")
*** In addition to voicing Shrek, Mike Myers also voices one of the Three Blind Mice in the first movie.
** Captain Hook sings songs by [[Music/TomWaits Tom Waits]] and [[Music/NickCave Nick Cave]]. It's pretty noticeable since both artists have very different voices.
** Swedish Gingy and Pinocchio are Disney/MickeyMouse and WesternAnimation/DonaldDuck, respectively. Also, Puss in Boots is [[WesternAnimation/TheIncredibles Frozone]] and [[WesternAnimation/DespicableMe Dr. Nefario.]]

** There was going to be a scene shortly after Shrek and Donkey get Fiona out of the dragon's keep that would involve them riding a mine cart like a roller coaster, complete with at least three references to Disneyland via the talking skull from Pirates of the Caribbean, the yeti from Matterhorn Bobsleds, and the Country Bears. The storyboards for this scene are included in the DVD.

** And how have not mentioned Shrek:
*** Having a Scottish accent
*** Being accused of eating his own children
*** Boasting about how his bowel movements could kill a donkey
*** Taking physical abuse first in his backside, then in his gonads.

** Also, TheOtherWiki says that the filmmakers intended to show the "Happily Ever After"-Form of Dragon as a pink winged Mare in ''Shrek 2''. They decided against it. [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Donkey_(Shrek)]]

** Janeane Garofalo was originally going to voice Fiona, but with the recasting of Shrek's voice actor, Fiona's voice and character were changed so she could contrast with Shrek better.

* CreatorKiller: One of the franchise's sources of fuel was all the snark, bitterness and derision directed towards Creator/{{Disney}} boss and Katzenberg's former superior Michael Eisner, including having Farquaad be a caricature of him; this movie was one of the multiple punches that eventually knocked Eisner out of the Mouse House in 2005 (nearly losing Creator/{{Pixar}} was the final punch to send him to the floor).
