    • Sunny is barefoot for a split second in the scene where Duke Igthorn grabs her.

  • Quotes

    • Gruffi: Hmph, we might as well start selling tickets to Gummi Glen. We're letting in every Tom, Dick, and Mary as it is.
      Grammi: Gruffi dear, I think I speak for everyone here when I say...Put a sock in it!

    • Grammi: You'll stay for breakfast, won't you dear?
      Calla: Oh, I'd love to stay but we must get back before the castle wakes up.
      Tummi: I'll eat her breakfast.

    • Ogre #1: Both Dukies squeek.
      Ogre #2: Maybe shoes too tight.

    • Gruffi: Well I'll be bounced. That there is one brave little girl.

    • Calla as Igthorn: (Zummi tries a spell to change her voice to Igthorn's, but it is now high pitched) What did you do?
      Gruffi: The wrong thing as usual.

    • Sunni as an ogre: I catch princess. Run, tell Duke. Quick-quick-quick.
      Ogre: (running to tell Igthorn and stops) His voice sure funny. (shrugs and keeps on running)

    • Igthorn: Grab him, you dolt!

    • Igthorn: (enters tower room) So sorry to have inconvenienced you, my dear but...(Sees that Calla is gone) My dear? Guards! Get in here!
      Ogre: Is problem?
      Igthorn: Is big problem! Where's the girl?

    • Grammi: A human!
      Tummi: (bounces down the stairs) Ignore us. We're just pigments of your imagination.

    • Tummi: I'll take care of the guard.
      Grammi: How do you plan to do that?
      Tummi: Well, if he's hungry I could bribe him with a turkey leg. Do you happen to have one on ya?

    • Ogre: Your Dukishness, we come for reward.
      Igthorn: You have, have you?
      (Igthorn has them thrown in the dungeon and shackled to the wall)
      Ogre: Oh, not very nice reward.

    • Igthorn: Princess Calla, I bid you welcome. Lock her up.
      Ogre #1: (to ogre #2) Didn't we do that once?
      Ogre #2: I pretty sure.

    • Gruffi: It's bad enough she's got to pal around with humans, now she wants to be one.

    • Cubbi: Let him in.
      Sunni as Calla: Why?
      Cubbi: It's our last chance for real food before going back to Grammi's cooking.

    • Cavin: Hey! Look where you're going. Princess? What are you doing?
      Calla: Shh. I'm running away.
      Cavin: You can't do that, you're royalty.
      Calla: I've had it with all that. I just want to be a peasant from now on. And I want you to help me.
      Cavin: But your highness, I have duties.
      Calla: Your duty is to teach me to be a peasant and that is a royal command.

    • Igthorn: You wait for us here. We'll be back with our little guest shortly.
      Ogre: Duh, what little guest?
      Igthorn: Think you slug. Why are we here?
      Ogre: To kidnap Princess Calla?
      Igthorn: Very good, oatmeal brains.

    • Igthorn: I've always known I was a genius, but this time I've surpassed myself.

    • Sunni: What is that?
      Zummi: The book calls it a Changing Hat. I don't know what that means exactly, but it should add a little flair to your wardrobe.

    • Title: "A Gummi by Any Other Name"

      References a line from Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet. Speaking about Romeo, the man she loves but who bears the name of her family's enemy, Juliet says "a rose by any other name would smell as sweet", in other words even he were not called Romeo he would still be the man she loves
