* FakeAmerican: Helen Reddy, an Australian, plays Nora.
* GenreKiller: Of Disney's live-action musicals. It would take ''thirty years'' for the genre to make a successful comeback with ''HighSchoolMusical''. [[note]]Not counting ''{{Newsies}}'', which did even worse.[[/note]]
* [[HeyItsThatGuy Hey, It's That Guy!]]: [[SantaClausIsCominToTown Mickey]] [[NightAtTheMuseum Rooney]] as Lampie; [[GilligansIsland Jim Backus]] as the mayor.
** British comedian Jim Dale as Dr. Terminus, who'd go on to a much more successful portrayal of a SnakeOilSalesman in ''{{Barnum}}''.
* RetroactiveRecognition: The last film DonBluth did in his tenure at Disney. Elliott's movements and facial expressions are ''very'' obviously of Bluth design.
