* AdvertisingByAssociation: Some of the trailers for ''WesternAnimation/ThePagemaster'' also said "From the creator of ''WesternAnimation/AnAmericanTail''" at the beginning. This was possibly done to mislead people into thinking it was a Creator/DonBluth film, which it wasn't; David Kirschner produced both films.

** ''Literature/TheStrangeCaseOfDrJekyllAndMrHyde'', ''Literature/MobyDick'', and ''Literature/TreasureIsland'' all have major roles in the film, as well as a generic fantasy story featuring a dragon and a knight (albeit a dead knight).

* GeniusBonus: You might assume the dragon in the film is a generic fantasy monster, but there are some references to indicate it is actually the self-same dragon from the first book of TheFaerieQueene series. The biggest clue? The dragon appears in tale of Red Cross Knight. When Richard takes the shield and sword of a dead knight to fight the dragon with, guess what is painted on the shield.

The film is notable for featuring great literary figures........without explaining why they were great. It suffered from a lack of success (It bombed at the box office and most of the few critics that reviewed it didn't find it to be anything good), but earned a small cult following through strong home video sales.

It also had tie-in video games, with a PC adventure game and Sega Genesis, SNES, and Game Boy platform games.
