* CreatorsFavorite: Cinderella was Walt Disney's favourite due to a personal connection with the character's backstory, as he also had to work hard to achieve his dreams. According to Ilene Woods, he said to her: "You're my favorite heroine, you know." and when she said "You mean Cinderella?", he replied, "Yes, there's something about that story I associate with.".

Added DiffLines:

** An interesting case with Cinderella herself. The original English dialogue implies her name actually is Cinderella, as opposed to a name her sisters gave her as in the original fairy tale. This was corrected in some foreign dubs and explained as a nickname. Somewhat justified since Cinderella's name is more obviously an insult in some languages.


*** In Mexico, she became Griselda.

!!The 1957 production of Rodgers and Hammerstein's version contains examples of:

* {{Blooper}}: During a reprise of "Do I Love You Because You're Beautiful?", the camera closes up on Queen Constantina preparing to sing a line, but Prince Christopher interrupts. Jon Cypher apologized to Dorothy Stickney later that night.
* FollowTheLeader: CBS hired Rodgers and Hammerstein to help them compete against NBC's televised presentations of ''Theatre/{{Peter Pan|1954}}'' by writing a work in which Creator/JulieAndrews would go from RagsToRiches in a manner similar to [[Theatre/MyFairLady her most popular role at the time.]]
* MissingEpisode: People living on the East Coast saw the musical live in color, while those in the west saw a black-and-white kinescope. The DVD only contains the latter version.

!!The 1965 remake of Rodgers and Hammerstein's version contains examples of:

* ActorAllusion: Famous dancer Creator/GingerRogers, then in her fifties, plays the Queen. When the King suggests a dance after she remains seated for most of the ball sequence, she all but winks at the viewer while commenting that she thought he'd never ask.
* TheCastShowoff: The melancholy portion of "A Lovely Night" got replaced with an upbeat instrumental, allowing Creator/LesleyAnnWarren to demonstrate her ballet talents.
* EditedForSyndication: The first DVD was sourced from a tape containing some trims, especially during Cinderella's and Prince Christopher's first meeting. The second DVD, sourced from the master tapes, [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PGKcSoGT4SY put all the edited footage back in]].
* KeepCirculatingTheTapes: Creator/ColumbiaPictures released a DVD in 2002, but pulled it out of print after a few years. Creator/ShoutFactory caused this to become subverted in 2014, by announcing that they would re-release the special on DVD.

!!The 1997 remake of the Rodgers and Hammerstein version contains examples of:

* AllStarCast: This version stars Music/{{Brandy}}, Creator/JasonAlexander, Creator/WhoopiGoldberg, Creator/BernadettePeters, Creator/VictorGarber, and Music/WhitneyHouston.
* BillingDisplacement:
** Brandy's name is last in the credits (among the leads). Music/WhitneyHouston, Creator/JasonAlexander, and Bernadette Peters come first.
** Although the opening credits start with Brandy's name and go through the rest in alphabetical order.
* TheCastShowoff:
** The fairy godmother usually only sings "Impossible/It's Possible" and one line at Cinderella's wedding (the same line used for this page's quote), but Whitney Houston closes this remake with another song, "There's Music in You." It originally came from an obscure MGM musical titled, ''Main Street to Broadway''. Also, most versions don't have the fairy godmother show up until the night of the ball, but this one has Houston appear at the beginning, and sing a rendition of "Impossible."
** Creator/WhoopiGoldberg also gets to do more singing than either of the queens before her. She starts off "The Prince is Giving a Ball", and replaces Prince Christopher as the performer of the reprise of "Do I Love You Because You're Beautiful?" (presumably renamed, "Do You Love Her Because She's Beautiful?").
* DawsonCasting: Averted when producers asked Music/WhitneyHouston if she wanted to play Cinderella, but she deemed herself too old for the part.


** Jaq's and Gus' names became "Vili" and "Huli" in the 1992 Finnish dub. In the original Finnish dub from 1967 Gus was named Naks (short for Naksuli).
