Factual Inaccuracy[edit]

Check the page for Pooh's Heffalump Movie. Released in 2005, it is clearly Disney's latest 2-D hand-drawn animated theatrical feature prior to The Princess and the Frog. Why is this claim mentioned on the Home on the Range entry? —Preceding unsigned comment added by 99.164.61.96 (talk) 01:49, 24 November 2009 (UTC)

If you look at the 'Disney theatrical animated features' box at the bottom of the page, you'll see the movies are made by different Disney studios. I think this could be why The Princess and the Frog is said to be the latest 2D animated film since Home on the Range. - JuneGloom07 (talk) 15:11, 24 November 2009 (UTC)

The alter-ego of Slim is actually named Y. O'del, not O'delay as mentioned in the synopsis. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 99.241.59.96 (talk) 15:20, 1 January 2012 (UTC)

Plot[edit]

I haven't seen this movie, but regarding the plot section, I know that the time period of the Old West is not 1966. Perhaps the writer intended 1866? Or is this film not set in the Old West? Clashwho 07:12, 25 January 2007 (UTC)

Saw part of the movie recently. No year is ever established on screen nor in the dialogue, but the train shown in the movie could be used to date it. It looks like the Jupiter (locomotive), which the Wikipedia article says was built in 1868, so 1866 seems like a good guess.

Wrote what I saw of it, by the way. It's missing the ending.

Based on Animal Farm?[edit]

I removed a bullet from the trivia section claiming that the film was inspired by Animal Farm. For anyone that has read Animal Farm and/or seen Home on the Range, this is an unsourced twitch-edit. (preceeding comment unsigned)

Well, the animals do rebel at the end, like in Animal Farm. But I'd say that if it's based on anything, it's on the The Pied Piper of Hamelin, particularly the part where the piper takes all the children away and everybody else tries to find the piper. Of course, here they go after the "piper" not to get the "children" back, nor to avenge their lost "children", but for $750. The "to save the farm" theme is similar to the McGuffin of "to save the orphanage" in Mickey's Around the World in 80 Days.

Main characters[edit]

I've removed the item of trivia claiming that "This was the first Disney animated film to feature three female main characters" since the protagonists of Sleeping Beauty (1959 film) are arguably the three female fairies. BuilderQ 21:14, 3 September 2007 (UTC)

Menken[edit]

I hardly think that critics would be 'universally' in favour of the treacly Menken's return. Bitbut (talk) 05:55, 28 May 2008 (UTC)

Caloway, not Calloway?[edit]

According to other sources (including IMDb and the U.S. DVD), one of the characters is called Mrs. Caloway, not "Calloway". --88.112.228.217 (talk) 16:08, 24 May 2009 (UTC)

Broken Link[edit]

Since the page is semi-protected, I can't fix it, but the Big Cartoon Database link should be http://www.bcdb.com/cartoon/23327-Home_On_The_Range.html, not http://www.bcdb.com/cartoons/23327-Home_On_The_Range.html 24.29.234.148 (talk) 22:57, 16 June 2011 (UTC)

Home Media Release/Edit Request 1/20/14[edit]

*Could somebody update the article and add the date when Home on the Range released onto VHS and DVD? 
  • I can't edit the page because I don't know the date and the page is protected from vandalism. I do know that this movie was the last major Disney animated feature to be on the VHS format. But it wasn't the last Disney film ever to be released onto VHS, Bambi II was in early 2006 and The Incredibles was the last Pixar movie to come out onto VHS in March 2005 (not counting the extreamly rare Cars VHS that was released as a Disney Movie Club exclusive in late 2006 or 2007.
  • Also, in the reception section of the page should say the movie got mixed reviews from critics rather than just talking about the Rotten Tomatoes. --24.147.1.197 (talk) 22:47, 20 January 2014 (UTC)Jacob Chesley
  • Who ever answered my request, thankyou very much! --24.147.1.197 (talk) 23:27, 21 January 2014 (UTC)Jacob Chesley

Incomplete article[edit]

This article needs to be expanded; the cast list is incomplete, the release section requires expansion as well as the box office section, the critical reception section needs reviews from notable critics and the soundtrack section is completely unsourced and needs reliable sources.Thelimiter (talk) 13:53, 12 February 2015 (UTC)
