  • Fritz the Dog appears on the main menu as the icons representing the three options, "Play the Whole Story", "Play page-by-page", and "Volume".
  • When the train is going through the forest, the left-most wolf walks off-screen.
  • After Hero Boy is dropped off at his house, the train departs facing the same direction as when it is picking him up, going from left to right. This is different from the film where it is going from right to left.


  • The train is seen pulling seven passenger cars in most illustrations, but eight cars when it goes through the forest.
