52 puppies were used to portray Napoleon over the course of the 28-week shoot, with anywhere from three to eight being used for a single scene. This was because the puppies slept a lot, cutting down filming time, and because a puppy could only be used for three weeks before it grew too big.
Ahh... not a mouse... a dog. DOG MUST DIE!
When Napoleon meets the "owl", it is not actually an owl. The animal is actually a Tawny Frogmouth.
Two English versions exist: the original Australian cast and a dub with an American cast.
