* MagnumOpusDissonance: Apparently no one on the film production liked the song "Talk to the Animals," but that is the song that won the Oscar for Best Original Song and since has become the signature music of the whole media property.
** Also, Fox wanted a CashCowFranchise [[ThisIsGoingToBeHuge out of this movie]]. Instead, they got it from a production they allowed producer Arthur P. Jacobs to make as compensation for [[TroubledProduction all the hell he went through]]: ''Film/PlanetOfTheApes1968''.

Added DiffLines:

* FridgeBrilliance: Dr. Dolittle's ImprobableFoodBudget is actually explained when he talks about how his animal clients can't pay him with money, but still try to pay him by giving him offerings of their own foodstuff. Dolittle might not eat worms and leaves and the like, but he can keep it and use it to feed his houseguests!

* UnfortunateImplications: Profound. One example from the first book: Prince Bumpo of Africa asks the Doctor to make him white, so that the Sleeping Beauty won't run away from him.
** The revised edition has him asking to be able to grow a lion's mane in order to make himself brave.
** On the plus side, Bumpo is depicted more positively than many white characters and certainly is no sillier then they are. Unlike Matthew the Cat's Meat Man, Bumpo is a useful member of the crew of the Flounder in ''Voyages of Doctor Dolittle'' and the narrator, nine-year-old Stebbins, is flattered to be treated as an equal by a prince and an Oxford student. Bumpo's skin color is not an issue.

vegan, hinting in a song sequence that being able to understand the complaints of Gub-Gub and other animals essentially guilt-tripped him into it.
