You may notice some characters that are reminiscent of others found in Disney animations. Madame Medusa has a lot in common with the villainous Cruella De Vil of 101 Dalmatians. Her pet alligators look like the sidekicks of Ursula in The Little Mermaid. And Eva Gabor voices another glamour girl in The Aristocrats.
