Tarzan

Trivia: At the beginning of the film, when baby Tarzan is blowing spit bubbles, the bubbles look a lot like Mickey Mouse. It's a long standing Disney tradition to put "hidden Mickeys" in their movies.

Trivia: The tea set in the movie is the tea set from "Beauty & The Beast". There is even a tea cup with a chip in it.

Trivia: You can look in the clouds when Jane decides to stay with Tarzan and see an angry gorilla and Jane's father. They are in the clouds to the left.

Trivia: When Jane's father is being shaken upside down by the gorillas, a stuffed version of Mulan's dog, Little Brother, falls out of his pockets.

Trivia: When Clayton and Tarzan meet, Clayton asks "Have we met?" In the original book by ER Burroughs, Tarzan and Clayton are cousins (although Clayton is unaware of this). So it is entirely possible they have met before, albeit when they were very young before Tarzan's family was marooned.

Continuity mistake: When child Tarzan jumps in the lake with the elephants the water is only up to the elephants' feet, but the underwater shot shows the elephants swimming.

More quotes from Tarzan

Question: After Sabor the leopard jumps on the net to kill baby Tarzan, it instead launches him up to Kala, who catches him by the diaper. Why does Kala move Tarzan up and down several times?

Answer: Kala, who was on the floor above the netting, was attempting to pull baby Tarzan up through the space around the pole, but it was too small for an infant to fit through. Kala instead pulled Tarzan by his diaper along the slit between the boards to the end of the floor where she could then reach over and pick him up.
