Fall in love with these fun facts all over again.

  1. Walt Disney originally didn't want to include the 'Bella Notte' spaghetti-eating scene, now one of the most iconic moments in the whole Disney canon.

  2. To maintain a dog's perspective, Darling and Jim Dear's faces are rarely seen.

  3. CinemaScope presented some new problems for the animators. The wider canvas space made it difficult for a single character to dominate the screen, and groups had to be spread out to keep the screen from appearing too sparse.

  4. Hiring Peggy Lee arguably was the first instance of a superstar voice being used for an animated film.

  5. Before animating the fight between Tramp and the rat, animator Wolfgang Reitherman kept rats in a cage next to his desk to study their actions.


You too can watch the iconic spaghetti and meatball scene right here on Disney+
