* MeanCharacterNiceActor: In an interview for ''Magazine/DisneyAdventures'' that was published right around the time that the movie was released, Tony Jay made it a point to say that he was actually a very nice man in RealLife, despite continually playing villainous roles (and with Frollo being one of his darker ones).

** Instead of Victor, Hugo and Laverne the gargoyles would have been named Chaney, Laughton and Quinn as homage to actors LonChaney, CharlesLaughton and AnthonyQuinn who had played the title character in previous adaptations. This idea was brought back into the German musical only named Charles, Antoine, and [[GenderBlenderName Loni]].

* CutSong: "Court of Miracles" was cut from ''Der Glöckner''. The U.S.A. production scrapped "A Guy Like You" due to the absence of the gargoyles, but revived "Court of Miracles" as a solo piece for Clopin.

* TheCameo[=/=]FreezeFrameBonus: Try pausing when Quasimodo is looking over the city - Yep. That's Belle walking through the city, reading. The animators thought that since Notre Dame is set in France, like ''Disney/BeautyAndTheBeast'', it'd be a nice FreezeFrameBonus. In the same shot, you can see a man cleaning [[Disney/{{Aladdin}} a carpet]] and [[Disney/TheLionKing a warthog]] being carried to cook.



* NonSingingVoice : Averted; with the exception of Esmeralda, every actor does their own singing. Tom Hulce, Quasimodo's voice actor, wanted to be a singer when he was younger.

Frollo. For Jacobi this would have been a RoleReprisal as he had played the character in a television film made in 1982.

** A much more tragic ending was considered. [[spoiler: Frollo would have fatally stabbed Quasimodo before being killed by Esmeralda. Phoebus would have then found them and Quasimodo's last wish would have been to
ring the bells one last time]].
