The Hunchback of Notre Dame
The Hunchback of Notre Dame trivia picture

Trivia: When Quasimodo is singing a few minutes into the film, he is standing above the town street where people are walking around, doing business. If you look closely to the lower right of the scene, you can see Belle from "Beauty and the Beast" reading a book in her blue dress, walking.

Trivia: Where you can see Belle from Beauty and the Beast, you can also see Pumbaa from the Lion King being carried on one of those stick things they use for dead animals.

Trivia: When Quasimodo is singing "Out There" the camera moves down and you can see a street merchant shaking out the flying carpet from Aladdin and there is a rooftop satellite dish.

Trivia: There are several 'Hidden Mickeys' in the railings at the Notre Dame Cathedral.

Trivia: When the soldiers fall after Quasimodo pulls the rope they were holding, a "Goofy Holler" can be heard.

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Quasimodo is reciting his alphabet to Frollo, we see Frollo pick up his goblet for a drink when he says "D?" By "E?", he still has the goblet in his hand. After saying "F?" he raises the goblet and takes a drink. When the camera pans back to Quasimodo saying "Festival", the goblet is in clear sight even when we hear Frollo spit out his drink.

Frollo: And look what else I've caught in my net. Captain Phoebus, back from the dead. Another "miracle", no doubt. I shall remedy that.

Question: When Frollo, has Ezmeralda, in his grip in the the church, he says "I was just imagining a rope around that beautiful neck" and she says "i know what you were imagining", what was he thinking? I assume its something sexual, but its a cartoon.

Answer: It was most certainly sexual. Frollo's whole arc was his fight against his carnal desires (seeing Esmerelda dancing in the fire, sniffing her hair, etc). In order to maintain a G-rating, they couldn't be overtly sexual, which is why it's done through suggestion and subtext.

JC Fernandez

Answer: The entire point is that he lusts after her. However, the Disney movie does not dive into that nearly as much as the novel.
