Rango is an ordinary chameleon who accidentally winds up in the town of Dirt, a lawless outpost in the Wild West in desperate need of a new sheriff.
Rango refers to Priscilla, the mouse, as "little sister", which is also Rooster Cogburn's pet name for Mattie Ross in True Grit (1969).
It's almost noon. Is everyone ready?
Bad Bill: Yeah, but he might be a problem.
Mayor: He's not a problem, William. He's a solution.
There are no natural Saguaro cacti in the Mojave Desert. They are native to the Sonoran Desert.
The DVD and Blu-ray releases include an extended version, which adds one scene after Rattlesnake Jake drags the Mayor off into the desert. Due to the water that has flooded up from the ground, the town of Dirt has become a beach resort and re-named itself Mud. As the locals enjoy the new scenery, Rango gets news that Bad Bill is causing trouble in another town. He decides to make a dramatic exit, delivering an inspired speech to the town while mounted on a roadrunner, but falls out of the saddle before he can finish it.
