- Adored by the Network: This film played every weekend during the early days of Disney XD.
- All-Star Cast: Freddie Highmore, Robert De Niro, Madonna, David Bowie, Jason Bateman, Snoop Dogg... and even some of the sequels' Poor Man's Substitute were Iggy Pop and Selena Gomez!
- Box Office Bomb: While it was wildly successful in France, it was much less so in the United States; it made only $15 million against a budget of $85 million. This resulted in the remaining sequels going Direct-to-Video.
- Completely Different Title: The French vs. English-language title.
- The Other Darrin: In the second and third films, Maltazard and Princess Selenia, who were voiced by David Bowie and Madonna respectively in the first film, are instead voiced by Lou Reed and Selena Gomez.
