Trivia: American Pop

  • Creator Cameo: As per tradition, Bakshi voices one character in this film. He's the pianist rehearsing with a heavily pregnant Bella who tells her that the song she's singing is going to be a hit.
  • Executive Meddling - Bakshi wanted Pete to win over the record execs by playing "Freebird", but it was insisted that "Night Moves" be used instead — a song that Bakshi hated. "Freebird" plays over the end credits, however.
  • Hey, It's That Guy! - The beat poet reading Allen Ginsberg's "Howl" is Bull Shannon.
