* MultipleLanguagesSameVoiceActor: Creator/DannyDeVito voiced the titular character not only in English, but also in Italian, Spanish and Russian
* TheOtherMarty: In the Mexican Spanish dub, Jesse Conde was cast as the Lorax, and he even recorded the dialogue in advance. However, Creator/DannyDeVito, the Lorax's English voice, was eventually cast to dub over Conde's lines before the release.

* WhatCouldHaveBeen: In the Mexican Spanish dub, Memo Aponte Mille was considered to voice Ted before actor and singer Alfonso Herrera was eventually selected.
* There was originally a different [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BpgUQYARIsw song that served as Once-ler's villain song]] instead of How Bad Can I Be. It wouldn't have been out of place in a rock opera, and was a fair amount darker and less goofy than the final product, showing that greed and pride were the reasons Once-ler went as far as he did.

* ActorAllusion: One of the fishes hums the theme to ''Film/MissionImpossibleIII''. Coincidentally, Arturo Mercado Jr. (the young Once-ler's Mexican VA) voiced Ethan Hunt in that film.

* CutSong: There are a few on the soundtrack, as well as some alternate versions of "Thneedville" and "Everybody Needs a Thneed."
* BillingDisplacement: Trailer only. The film's opening credits are actually appropriate, starting with the three characters from the book in order of importance (Danny [=DeVito=] as the Lorax, Ed Helms as Once-Ler, and Zac Efron as Ted) and the rest following. [[NeverTrustATrailer The trailer on the other hand]] plays up Zac Efron and Taylor Swift, Ed Helms, and gives Danny [=DeVito=] an "AndStarring",
* HeyItsThatVoice:
** [[Film/HighSchoolMusical Troy Bolton]], hoping to fulfill his crush Music/TaylorSwift's dream of seeing a real tree, goes to see [[Film/TheHangover Stu]] who got into a fight with [[Disney/{{Hercules}} Philoctetes]] over said trees.
** [[Series/ModernFamily Gil Thorpe]] is Aloysius O'Hare the mayor who sells bottled air.
** [[Film/GroundhogDay Ned Ryerson]] is the Onceler's Uncle!
** In the Japanese version, Creator/MamoruMiyano and Creator/KoichiYamadera are Ted and O'Hare respectively. The Lorax is voiced by the Japanese comedian Ken Shimura.
*** So Miyano got to voice Zac Efron's role after Zac failed to get [[Manga/DeathNote one of Miyano's biggest roles?]] [[note]] Though rumor has it that Zac turned down the part saying something along the lines of "cast Asian actors for Asian characters," avoiding a RaceLift.[[/note]]
** In the 1972 special, Bob Holt ([[WesternAnimation/ChallengeOfTheGoBots Cop-Tur]], [[WesternAnimation/TheGreatGrapeApe Grape Ape]], [[WesternAnimation/{{Wizards}} Avatar]]) was [[ActingForTwo both]] [[TalkingToHimself The Lorax and Once-ler]].

* ProductPlacement: Thankfully avoided in the movie itself, but some of the crossmarketing [[http://www.scpr.org/programs/madeleine-brand/2012/03/01/22732/how-mazdas-lorax-campaign-went-awry hasn't been without controversy]].



* WordOfGod: On the DVD commentary, it is mentioned that after How Bad Can I Be?, 5 years have passed.

* UnderminedByReality: The film's numerous corporate tie-ins screw up the message quite spectacularly. The Lorax speaks for the trees, and Mazda!
