Did You Know?
The original script was written in 1985. A dozen other writers wrote treatments of it, but Neil Cuthbert was the only one credited.
In the escape scene, when Pluto and Dina are leaving the secret warehouse, Dina is wearing a purple spacesuit, then later on while traveling in the space car she is wearing an orange space suit. When they exit the car her spacesuit is purple again.
