The film was launched in 1993 as a vehicle for Michael Jackson, who would produce, star, and be a consultant in the music and choreography. It would have been a hybrid live-action/CGI film. The film was ultimately made without Jackson's involvement.
Production started in 1994. Originally, the film was supposse to star the Looney Tunes and the evil Darla Dimple would try to kill them. Mark Dindal later changed a few things. He removed the Looney Tunes cast due to them being in another film called Space Jam. Darla was still evil, but Dindal added her "sweet" side. Also, removed was an alligator from the new cast whose name was supposed to be Al the Alligator. Dindal thought the cast was too large, so he removed Al from the movie; however, he can still be seen both in the film and on the poster at the bottom-middle. Also changed, during the final battle scene on the roof with Max and Danny, it was originally going to have Max die but was later changed to an ending where he is flown away instead.

—Albert Camus (19131960)

—Erich Fromm (19001980)
“From the war of nature, from famine and death, the most exalted object which we are capable of conceiving, namely, the production of the higher animals, directly follows. There is grandeur in this view of life, with its several powers, having been breathed into a few forms or into one; and that, whilst this planet has gone cycling on according to the fixed law of gravity, from so simple a beginning endless forms most beautiful and most wonderful have been, and are being, evolved.”
—Charles Darwin (18091882)
