PG-13 | | Animation, Comedy, Fantasy
In a coma, a cartoonist finds himself trapped within his own underground creation and must find a way to get back, while racing against his popular but treacherous character, Monkeybone.
This is director Henry Selick's only film to be rated PG-13.
I can't believe it, we give him a body and he sends us dogs? This is so humiliating!
Kitty: Let's not think about dogs... Let's think about pussycats...
When Stu is singing in the club to Julie, as he passes a table a boom shadow is visible across his face.
Lisa Zane is listed in the opening credits, however due to editing her entire time on screen is only about 20 seconds.
It is interesting to note that some elements of the deleted scenes included on the R1 DVD have been digitally obscured, probably for copyright/royalties reasons. This includes two paintings shown during the extended "Love is a Drug" musical number, plus an actor in the same sequence has also been "fuzzed out". Several contents of Stu's "emotional baggage" bag are fuzzed out in the extended version of Stu's arrival in Downtown, including, it seems, the Village People LP that is left unobscured in the final film. In the final film version of Stu's arrival in Downtown, he encounters a creature clearly intended to represent Joe Camel (of cigarette ad fame). In the extended version in the Deleted Scenes section of the DVD, he does not encounter the character.
