Trivia: Over the Hedge

Comic strip trivia:

  • Over the Hedge was Michael Fry's second comic strip. His first was Committed, which ran from 1994 to 2006. Committed also had an Animated Adaptation specifically, a 13-episode adaptation made by Nelvana for CTV.

Movie trivia:

  • Actor Allusion:
    • When things go bad for RJ, he goes into a planning monologue, just like John McClane does all the time.
      • When RJ escapes the house with a cart of goodies including a beach umbrella and a propane tank and is chased by the dog, the resulting disaster leaves RJ performing the classic John McClane 'ejection seat' move from Die Hard 2, down to the camera angle.
    • Ozzy is an overacting Large Ham when it comes to playing dead. Did we mention he's voiced by William Shatner?
    • Hammy suggests that they name the hedge Steve, which was a rather cute nod to his voice actor Steve Carell.
    Hammy: Let's call it Steve!
    Verne: Steve?
    Hammy: It's a pretty name.
  • Banned in China: Banned due to its "deception of free world."
  • Hey, It's That Voice!:
  • Throw It In: "I thought we'd be dead by Step Two, so this is going great!", among other adlibs, were thrown in.
  • What Could Have Been: Jim Carrey was originally going to voice RJ.
