3) The movie's title is derived from a quote by Robert Louis Stevenson: "You think those dogs will not be in heaven? I tell you they will be there long before any of us."
4) The illustration on the War and Peace book that Charlie "reads" to Anne-Marie has the caption "General Pomeroy is shot." This is a reference to lead animator John Pomeroy, who is also a military history buff.

4) The animation production for this film originally took place at Screen Animation Ireland Ltd., a short lived animation studio that was formed from the ashes of Sullivan Bluth Studios (which produced the original All Dogs Go to Heaven (1989) film) in Dublin, Ireland. However, Screen Animation Ireland swiftly shut down in October 1995 due to financial troubles, which led to the producers to outsource the production to several animation studios around the world in order to complete the deadline.
5) In the song "It Feels So Good To Be Bad" sung by Red and Carface, about 40 seconds into the song (from the point Red starts to sing) Red throws Carface into a barber chair and begins to menace him with a straight razor, which is likely a reference to the fact that Red's voice was provided by George Hearn, who portrayed the murderous barber Sweeny Todd on Broadway. He won an Emmy for his portrayal of Sweeny Todd during a taped version of show that was aired on Showtime.
