The first live-action feature comedy produced by Walt Disney.
Film debut of Annette Funicello.
Gregory Peck was the second choice for the role of Wilson Daniels.
As a kind of product placement for Walt Disney's associate publisher Dell, a character is seen reading a comic book of Uncle Scrooge 18. This issue, cover-dated June 1957, features the Carl Barks-written adventure "Land of the Pygmy Indians."
The first of six Walt Disney films starring Fred MacMurray.
Starting with this film and five more films for Disney along with a TV series in 1960, Fred MacMurray was widely regarded as the highest paid actor in Hollywood.
The words Wilby Daniels recited from the ring to transform himself were "in canis corpore transmuto."
The only feature film Tommy Kirk and Tim Considine appeared in together, although they did co-star as the Hardy Boys in a 1956 television series.
This movie features Fred MacMurray and Tim Considine, who would later go on to star in My Three Sons. However, they do not share many scenes together.
Although she gets billing above Tim Considine and Roberta Shore, Annette Funicello has a much smaller role than they do.
Fred MacMurray is supposedly a mailman, but we never see him in uniform or at work.
Wilby transforms into Chiffon the Shaggy Dog three times over the course of the film.
