Trivia - "The Secret of NIMH"
Hollywood Lost and Found

Movie Trivia


The producers of the film, which was based on the children's book "Mrs. Frisby and the Rats of NIMH," were informed by the toy company Whammo that they couldn't use "Frisby" as the name of their lead character. The only problem was that they had already recorded John Carridine's voice for the film as the old Owl, who used the name "Frisby" several times in his dialogue. Rather than spend the money to re-record him, they editorially replaced the "F" sound with a "B" as best they could, and changed her name to Mrs. Brisby in the script for the other actor's recording sessions.
