Trivia / MouseHunt

  • Actor Allusion:
    • Ernie, played by Nathan Lane, says "Hakuna Matata" to a vaguely ethnic foreigner at the auction. Lane voices Timon in The Lion King movies. Pumbaa himself, Ernie Sabella, plays the technician at the pound.
    • A very blunt one in the trailer:
    This is Nathan Lane. You loved him in The Birdcage.
    • In a pre-emptive one, Ernie's line while fighting with Lars, "Double! Double! Double!," is a Shout-Out to The Producers. Nathan Lane would later star in the Broadway show as the character who says this line.
  • Breakaway Pop Hit: The film's original score, specifically its main title, has found extensive use outside the context of the film, being used in movie trailers, TV commercials, as well as other films.
  • Fake American: British Lee Evans as Lars.
