WILHELM SCREAM: When Rhino is switching channels while watching TV.
When Bolt threatens to drop Mittens from the overpass unless she tells him where Penny is, the bus from Speed (1994/I) (with 2525 on the roof) passes underneath.
The design of Rhino in his plastic ball was based on John Lasseter's pet chinchilla, which was brought to an animators' retreat during the film's production.
Originally developed by Chris Sanders (co-director of Lilo & Stitch (2002)) as "American Dog" with a similar storyline but with major location and character changes. The dog originally had much more of a "Stitch" look, a lot of the movie took place in the deserts of the American Southwest (similar to the location of Pixar's Cars (2006)). The character of Mittens was originally a male cat with an eye patch who worked as a mechanic in a junkyard (this character eventually became the star of Sanders' personal webcomic, "Kiskaloo"). Sanders was replaced by Chris Williams, and the project was overhauled in late 2006.
When Rhino is watching television in the RV, a female voice on TV makes reference to a person named "Ridge". Ridge Forrester is the name of the character on "The Bold and the Beautiful" (1987) played by Ronn Moss, who voices Dr. Forrester in this film.
The number on Bolt's dog tag is the address of Disney's feature animation building.
This movie features a girl named Penny and her dog having crazy adventures with a super villain and his cat. This is eerily similar to the TV show "Inspector Gadget" (1983) in which a girl named Penny and her dog help Inspector Gadget against a super villain with a cat. Both dogs have B's as first letter in their names- Bolt and Brain, and both dogs are super smart, communicate only with the girl, and usually end up saving the day.
First Disney animated feature conceived and produced in 3-D. The two previous features, Chicken Little (2005) and Meet the Robinsons (2007), were converted to 3-D after the fact.
Storyboarded but not animated was a scene in Las Vegas, where Bolt (who was just passing through the city with Mittens and Rhino) is confronted in a dark alley by two Doberman Pinschers, who proceed to brutally bum-rush him, and rip off his collar (complete with ironic quick cuts of clips from the "Bolt" TV show playing on a video billboard in the city nearby). Left for dead by the two dogs, Bolt, disillusioned, realizes that his "super powers" are not real. The producers decided to nix this scene, as they not only felt that the story was doing well enough without it, but the scene was way too dark.
When Penny is printing "LOST DOG" flyers, the last 4 digits of the phone number on the copier are: 8423. This makes the number (877) 504-8423. 877-504-8423 is a number reserved by ABC for movies and TV series. Calling it will provide a short tape recorded message about how fake it is.
In the German version of the movie the hamsters name has been changed from Rhino to Dino.
In the French version of the movie, Bolt is called Volt.
When the animals arrive at the Hollywood studio, a car pulls up and the security guard is distracted by the driver who has an appointment with "Joe Mateo". Joseph Mateo is one of the studio artists listed in the movie's credits.
First film to be released on Blu-Ray before DVD.
Originally, Mittens was to be called Mister Mittens as her masters never took the time to check if she was male or female.
Look and lighting director Adolph Lusinsky and his team traveled to several of the film's "real-life locations" such as an Ohio trailer park, the San Francisco docks, New York streets and the desert surrounding Las Vegas to study how the light in those places interacted with the scenery.
Directors Byron Howard and Chris Williams and look and lighting director Adolph Lusinsky were inspired by the paintings of Edward Hopper and films from the early seventies, especially the works of cinematographers Gordon Willis and Vilmos Zsigmond for the film's visual look.
In order to properly animate Rhino, the crew adopted a real hamster which they called Doink and filmed it from beneath while it was walking on a sheet of Plexiglas. Thus they were able to see how Rhino would walk in his plastic ball.
The first Walt Disney Studios film produced under chief creative officer John Lasseter's management.
The crew found it difficult to find a balance for Mittens' appearance, between her neglected mangy fur, her hooligan side due to her miserable life on the streets and parts of softer fur still visible from every angle.
According to executive producer John Lasseter, the film's emotional center is Bolt's journey and the personal evolution it provokes in him.
For the French dub, Bolt is voiced by actor Richard Anconina while the two actor cats and the various pigeons are voiced by comedic duo Omar Sy and Fred Testot.
Despite the film being fully computer animated, the crew still relied heavily on hand-drawn storyboards.
In France, all the cinemas carrying the 3D version of the film showed it exclusively in its French dub. As such, viewers who wanted to see the film in English (with subtitles) had no choice bu to see the 2D version.
Rhino the Hamster spends a large part of the film in a plastic bubble. Ironically, John Travolta, the voice of Bolt, was in the TV movie The Boy in the Plastic Bubble (1976) (TV).
