  • Creator Backlash: According to Moving Innovation, George Lucas was not impressed with the film, feeling it suffered from a bad story and weak images.
  • Descended Creator: Ben Burtt, the sound designer for the short, provides Andre's voice.
  • Serendipity Writes the Plot: The reason Andre and Wally B are designed like balloon shaped, rubberhose characters was because that was the closest they could make to an animatable character design at the time. The modeling program used at the time could only produce simple geometric designs (cones, cubes, spheres) and John Lasseter wanted a flexible pear shape for the characters' bodies, as is found in most cartoon characters, and eventually a teardrop shape was achieved by stretching the point of a sphere to infinity.
