Trivia: In the actual opening-night performance of "The Mikado", the Act 2 finale began with "The Threatened Cloud Has Passed Away". This version was felt to be too short, so "For He's Gone and Married Yum-Yum" was later added, as seen in the movie and modern performances.
Goofs: Errors made by characters (possibly deliberate errors by the filmmakers): During the performance, Katisha's kimono is wrapped incorrectly. All Kimono wrap from the right side of the body to the left (i.e. the right side folds over the left), but her kimono wraps from left to right. Every other character has her/his kimono wrapped correctly.
