* This is considered to be the final film of the Disney Renaissance (the next film in line was the long-awaited sequel to ''Disney/{{Fantasia}}'', ''Disney/{{Fantasia 2000}}'', which had been announced back in 1991, and this film is considered the beginning of the Millennium Age of Animation), and ''Tarzan'' is the only one of the Renaissance films to not be packaged in an animated film specialty line for [[Creator/WaltDisneyHomeVideo home media]] (the ''Walt Disney Masterpiece Collection'', which replaced the ''Walt Disney "Black Diamond" Classics'' brand in 1994, was discontinued around ''Tarzan's'' theatrical release with ''Disney/TheAdventuresOfIchabodAndMrToad'', and while a new brand, the ''Walt Disney Gold Classic Collection'' brand, was created for 2000, ''Tarzan'' wasn't packaged in it, plus the ''Gold Classic Collection'' died a quick death, only lasting 14 months compared to the years of its two predecessors; the next two lines, the ''Platinum/Diamond Editions'', don't include ''Tarzan'' since those lines concern the "Untouchables" in the Disney Vault, which ''Tarzan'' is not a part of).

* HeyItsThatVoice:
** You may not be instantly familiar with the voice of Creator/TonyGoldwyn, but you would be familiar [[Film/{{Ghost}} with his most famous role]]. Or do you mean [[Series/{{Scandal}} President Grant]]?
** [[Series/{{Millennium}} Frank Black]] is Kerchak.
** Rosie O'Donnell as Terk.
** Professor Porter is portrayed by the late [[Series/YesMinister Sir Nigel Hawthorne]], and Mr. Clayton is portrayed by '''Creator/BrianBlessed!!!'''
** Creator/WayneKnight plays Tantor the elephant.
** Creator/LanceHenriksen is Kerchak. You may also know him as Bishop from ''Film/{{Aliens}}'' and the Detective from ''Film/TheTerminator'', or Admiral Hackett from ''Franchise/MassEffect'', or the Lieutenant from ''WesternAnimation/TheLegendOfKorra''. And General Shepherd from ''VideoGame/ModernWarfare'', for that matter.
** Young Tarzan is [[WesternAnimation/DoraTheExplorer Boots]] in the sequel.
** One of the elephants in the water hole sounds like the doctor fish from ''WesternAnimation/SpongeBobSquarePants''.
** Another fun fact: Creator/PhilCollins not only sang the songs for the English version. He also did it for other 4 languages: Spanish (both Spain and Latin America, being the only Disney movie in which the songs of both versions sound the same), French, German and Italian, so people from those countries also had an unconventional HeyItsThatVoice moment.
** In the Italian dub, Terk is [[WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons Bart Simpson]]. Aside from the {{irony}} of sharing a voice actress with a character from a franchise that [[TakeThat just can't stop making fun of]] Creator/{{Disney}}, there's the fact that in the Italian dub, said voice actress (Ilaria Stagni)'s voice is ''very'' easy to recognise. Meanwhile, Tarzan is now Disney/WreckItRalph.
** In the Japanese dub:
*** Adult Tarzan is voiced by Takeshi Kaneshiro, aka [[VideoGame/{{Onimusha}} Akechi Samanosuke]]. He also dubs Tarzan in Chinese, since he spoke both languages, as Kaneshiro being Chinese-Japanese himself. He's [[TheOtherDarrin replaced]] by Creator/JurotaKosugi in the ''Franchise/KingdomHearts'' games instead.
*** [[Creator/KenjiUtsumi Kerchak was]] [[Manga/FistOfTheNorthStar Raoh]] and [[VideoGame/MetalGearSolid3 Volgin]].[[note]]Also overlaps with HilariousInHindsight, since he was famous for voicing gorilla-sized men like the aforementioned characters. In this movie, he voiced a ''literal'' gorilla![[/note]]
*** [[Creator/BanjoGinga Clayton is]] [[Manga/FistOfTheNorthStar Souther]] and [[VideoGame/MetalGearSolid Liquid Snake]].
*** [[Creator/ToshikoFujita Kala is]] [[Manga/FistOfTheNorthStar Mamiya]] and [[Anime/DigimonAdventure Taichi Yagami]].
*** [[Creator/TesshoGenda Tantor is]] [[Manga/{{Naruto}} Kurama]] and [[VideoGame/SengokuBasara Takeda Shingen]]. Curiously enough, just liks his American counterpart, he also dubbed [[WesternAnimation/BuzzLightyearOfStarCommand Emperor Zurg]] in Japanese.
*** Terk is [[Film/MemoirsOfAGeisha Sayuri in Japanese]].
*** Zugor in the sequel [[Creator/RokuroNaya was]] [[WesternAnimation/ThomastheTankEngine Mr. Conductor]], a role he shared with both their original voice actors, Creator/GeorgeCarlin.
** In the Mexican Spanish dub, Adult Tarzan was voiced by the late soap opera and movie actor, Eduardo Palomo, who was casted as Tarzan because Palomo [[InkSuitActor looked helluvah lot like Tarzan]]. In fact, one of his most famous roles was Juan del Diablo from ''Series/CorazonSalvaje'', who resembled quite a bit like Tarzan, but years before the movie was made.
** In the Spaniard dub:
*** Kerchak is voiced by Pablo Adán, who international audiences know as [[Film/PansLabyrinth Fauno's voice]]. However, Spanish kids recognized him at the time as [[{{WesternAnimation/Gargoyles}} Goliath's]] Spaniard voice.
*** Tarzan was voiced by Jose Luis Gil, who among many others, already played [[WesternAnimation/ToyStory Buzz Lightyear]] and a couple of years later became famous in Spain as a LiveActionTV actor in ''Aquí no hay quien viva'', a popular Spanish SitCom.
*** Terk shares her Spanish voice with [[Series/HowIMetYourMother Robin Scherbatsky]], of all people.
*** Clayton shares his with another villain from a different Disney movie. [[Disney/BeautyAndTheBeast Maybe because they were both hunters]].

** Likewise much of Professor Porter's reaction to her ranting was improvised along with other lines such as "Oh, just like Aunt Isabelle" when Jane describes how Tarzan walks.

* CutSong: A few songs cut from the film were actually demo versions of the songs that later appeared in the film. One notable mention goes towards "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qrMMW9H1QoU 6/8 Intro]]" which was actually Phil Collins' proposition as to how the music in the film should sound. Another one is "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b-fFMqsPRh8 I Will Follow]]" which served as a precursor to "Strangers Like Me", but it sounds more like Tarzan is trying to make Jane feel happy.



** One of the elephants in the water hole sounds like the doctor fish from ''SpongeBobSquarePants''.
** Another fun fact: PhilCollins not only sang the songs for the English version. He also did it for other 4 languages: Spanish (both Spain and Latin America, being the only Disney movie in which the songs of both versions sound the same), French, German and Italian, so people from those countries also had an unconventional HeyItsThatVoice moment.

* RelationshipVoiceActor: In the Japanese dub, basically [[FistOFTheNorthStar Raoh is married with Mamiya, rather than Yuria instead, while Souther wants to kill both of them]].
* SameLanguageDub: A weird case. According to '''BrianBlessed''', although Tony Goldwyn provided the voice for Tarzan in the theatrical animated Tarzan film, Brian provided Tarzan's iconic yodel.
* ScienceMarchesOn: The main reason Disney changed the [[FrazettaMan Mangani]] to gorillas is because of this: Gorillas have been found to be the [[GentleGiant Gentle Giants]] of the jungle, and thus perfect animals for a Disney film.
