- Hilarious in Hindsight:
- According to writer Dan Berendsen, earlier in the decade he had an interview with the Disney Channel, and was left insulted when they said he was 'wasting their time' and threw him out. He went home and angrily spent the next couple weeks penning the script for his idea of a kids film. A producer bought the script off of him, and needless to say, he was a little amused to see it air on the same channel that kicked him out.
- At one point, Bronze Eagle is handed something by the arm of a rubber-man hero with familiar looking hair in a blue and white costume, to which he says, "Thanks, Reed.", a lawyer-friendly reference to Mister Fantastic. Nowadays, though? No lawyers need be consulted, since the House Of Mouse bought the House Of Ideas.
- A couple years after this, Disney would make another movie about the son of a pair of superheroes who seemingly possesses no powers of his ownnote , this time on the big screen.
YMMV / Up, Up and Away!
