Trivia: There are 6 entries in the trivia list – like these:
- Finn McMissile is a stylized Aston Martin DB5, James Bond's trademark vehicle. (According to 'James Bond Vehicles' by John Cork and Collin Stutz, it never carried missiles, though. The Goldfinger version had machine guns where McMissile has his missiles.)
- Out of respect for Paul Newman, who died in 2008, Doc Hudson is not included in this film.
- The first John Lasseter-directed Pixar film not to have a score by Randy Newman.
