Goofs

Throughout the movie, Oliver changes in size inconsistently to the time line of the movie. For example, upon the arrival of the family to their home in Ohio, while on the porch, Oliver appears to be 1-2 months old. When the action shifts to inside the house, Oliver has aged by several months. In his next scene, the child has returned to his newborn size.


Crazy Credits

"Harold and the Purple Crayon" by Crockett Johnson is published by HarperCollins, but the credits write it as "Harpers Collins."


Alternate Versions

SPOILER WARNING The version of the film on the Unrated DVD is drastically different than, and is in fact shorter than, the theatrical release. The plot point in which it is revealed that Chip was faking his handicap is never revealed. The following scenes are removed from the film:

  • The hospital scene where Oliver is born and named.
  • The scene where Tom plays basketball with Chip in a wheelchair.
  • The scene between Tom and Chip in the locker room.
  • The scene in which Chip reveals he can walk to Tom.
  • The scene in which Chip reveals he can walk to Sofia, Wesley and Wesley's father. (This appears as an alternate ending on the DVD)
  • The scene in Barcelona where Chip is at the Idea building. However, the Unrated version has several short new scenes including:
  • A bizarre dream that Tom has.
  • More of Amelia's Spanish speaking.
