Random Trivia For This Title:

  • WILHELM SCREAM: Heard during the commotion in the tavern.
  • Eric Idle, upon seeing the "coconuts as horse hoof sound effects" segment in the stage show scene, admonished the makers of the film publicly. He claimed they were ripping off Monty Python and the Holy Grail and "stealing" their joke. He perhaps failed to realize that coconuts have been used as horse hoof beats since the days of radio - from whence Monty Python were no doubt inspired.
  • Antonio Banderas voices Puss in Boots in the English, Spanish, Mexican, Italian and Japanese versions of the film.
  • As Artie is giving his speech when leaving his school, he says he's "building his city on rock and roll". This is a modified line in reference to and taken from rock band Starship's hit "We Built This City". The actual line in the song goes "We built this city on rock and roll."
  • Donkey and Dragon have five children: Coco, Debbie, Peanut, Parfait and Bananas.
  • In one scene, the Gingerbread Man's life essentially passes before his eyes. Not only does this scene make reference to [The Six Million Dollar Man], but according to the sequence, the Gingerbread Man is or was married.
  • Held the record for largest opening day for an animated film, with $38 million. This record was broken by Toy Story 3 with $41 million.
