Trivia: The Pebble and the Penguin

  • Creator Backlash: Don Bluth has disowned this movie, primarily for its terrible animation. He actually got wholly fed up with the production towards the end of it and outright abandoned it for Fox as it continued to crash and burn.
  • Creator Killer: At least for Bluth's career as an independent filmmaker. His animation career as a whole wouldn't end until Titan A.E..
  • Executive Meddling: MGM/UA took over the distribution of the film late in its production, after Warner Bros. disowned Bluth's studio because of the failures of Thumbelina and A Troll in Central Park. Scenes were then cut, characters were removed, and voices had to be re-recorded. Bluth was so upset with the results that he opted to pull an Alan Smithee and have his name taken off the credits, and accepted an offer to work for Fox Animation, where he finally had a brief change of fortune.
  • Hey, It's That Voice!:
    • All right, so what British actor who will have no character outside of narrating is this? That woman from Oliver! Huh.
    • For Hoodwinked fans, Rocko is Kirk in the original movie, while Hubie is Kirk in the sequel.
    • Tim Curry plays the villain.
  • Name's the Same: Not to be confused with that Rocko.
