Acclaimed Flop: Ended up losing DreamWorks $13.5 million, plus an additional $2 million when the Blu-ray sales tanked. Budget, $135 million. Box office, $83,028,128 (domestically), $282,570,682 (worldwide). That being said, the reviews were generally positive and it has a 67% (Fresh) rating on Rotten Tomatoes.
Creator Killer: This film not performing all that well financially in both the theaters and home market, along with the shareholder lawsuit thrown in Katzenberg's direction, made Turbo part of the mid-New Ten's chain of misfires that crushed the main DWA careers of Katzenberg and CCO Bill Damaschke.
Dueling Movies: With Disney's Wreck-It Ralph, which was also scored by Henry Jackman, featured Sonic the Hedgehog, who inspired this film (which is Ironic seeing that the few early incarnations of the sonic movie was going to be under the Dreamworks banner), involved car racing, and had a character who was the secret Big Bad, something that didn't become known until critic screenings. Turbo loses.
Fake Nationality: American actor Bill Hader voices the French Canadian Guy Gagné.
For the television series
The Other Darrin: As with most animated shows based off popular movies, the entire cast of Celebrity Voice Actors are replaced with veteran voice actors and TV actors. The two main exceptions are Michael Patrick Bell as White Shadow and Ken Jeong as Kim-Ly.
