* HeyItsThatGuy:
** Appropriately, Susan Sto Helit, a Duchess, is played by the [[DowntonAbbey eldest daughter of the Earl of Grantham]] and future Countess of Grantham.
** Teatime is played by [[BandOfBrothers Albert Blythe]], who also [[Series/DoctorWho played in L.I.N.D.A. and met the Doctor]].
** Mr Crumley is [[Series/{{Blackadder}} Baldrick]], and Lord Downey is the guy who voiced [[VideoGame/BaldursGate Irenicus]].
* CreatorCameo: The toy-maker at the end of the movie is Creator/TerryPratchett.
* ThrowItIn: Marc Warren's take on Teatime, which was inspired by JohnnyDepp's take on [[Film/CharlieAndTheChocolateFactory Willy Wonka]]. In an interview, Warren instead decided to use Depp's Wonka voice because, well, he'd just come back from seeing it at the cinema with kids.
