** Although Creator/KristenBell has more screen time voicing Haru's friend Hiromi than Elliot Gould does as Toto the crow, Gould is given on-screen credit on all English-dubbed theatrical copies of the film, while Bell has not. Even though ''Disney/{{Frozen}}'' later made Bell an animation superstar, she still gets no on-screen credit on ''Cat Returns'' theatrical screenings (but later gets prominent credit on Blu-rays and DVDs).

* SoOkayItsAverage: It's good, but it really does feel like this when you hold it up next to many of the other movies from the studio.

Not helping is how it had the unfortunate coincidence of premiering only a year after ''Anime/SpiritedAway'', a '''much''' more widely-acclaimed film with an uncannily similar basic template.

* AlternateCharacterInterpretation: In the fandom: Louise or the Baroness, a very minor character with only one shot and no lines during Nishi's telling of Baron's past in WhisperOfTheHeart, has become a fan favorite, with personalities ranging from evil, rival love interest with Haru for Baron, to sweet and kind rival to even Haru or Baron's sister in some fics. If she was a person, she'd either be totally insane or have Gollum-level split personality disorder.

* ContestedSequel: ''Anime/WhisperOfTheHeart'' may be better in terms of animation and story, but ''The Cat Returns'' (itself not a weak movie) is just as popular, if not more.



* HilariousInHindsight: Several years after Creator/AnneHathaway starred in this movie about cats, she was cast as none other than [[Film/TheDarkKnightRises Catwoman.]]
*** Haru even comments, upon seeing Lune walking down the sidewalk with the box of fish crackers, "Cat burglar."

* AmbiguouslyGay: Natori's care for the King seem to go beyond simply duty. He immediately express concern whenever the King hurts himself or gets upset, gets an offended look when Muta refers to him in a mocking manner, and the camera cuts to him alone having a shocked reaction when the King [[spoiler:asks Haru to marry him instead]]. Also when the King [[spoiler:decides to retire, Natori immediately concludes that he'll be retiring too in such case.]]
