Chip: The game is afoot!

Dale: How are we going to find the will if all you wanna do is play foot games?


The phrase "The game is afoot!" first appeared in William Shakespeare's play King Henry IV. Since then it was used by Arthur Conan Doyle in his stories about Sherlock Holmes and in Disney's earlier production The Great Mouse Detective.

Two cases of character recycling: The fox head on a wall inside the castle looks like the adult fox from the Disney animated feature The Fox and the Hound, and MacDuff looks quite like Colonel Towser from the Disney animated feature 101 Dalmatians.
