Goofs

The opening text is based on obsolete information. The "laws of aviation" from the early 20th century explained the flight of large objects such as airplanes and birds but failed when applied to really small objects like bees. Modern laws of aviation do explain the flight of bees. See more »

Crazy Credits

Barry stings the fishing boy, causing him to fall away, and then takes his place on the moon in the DreamWorks Animation logo. See more »

Alternate Versions

The British version is cut by 20 seconds. Dreamworks was required by the British Board of Film Classification to remove "a potentially dangerous and easily imitated technique involving materials that are readily available in the average household". The "dangerous and easily imitated technique" involved the ignition of an aerosol can to form a makeshift flame-thrower - this is replaced by a shower head in the UK version. They were not given the choice of releasing the film uncensored at a higher age rating because the film was aimed at younger viewers. See more »
