Farquaad's name is also a corruption of the slur "fuckwad". His height is also a jab at the significant size difference between Eisner and Katzenberg. The movie more than its sequels contains a decent amount of profanity compared to other family animated films, with the words "damn", "ass" as a pun and "crap" used on several occasions including in song lyrics. The word "broad" is used to describe a woman whose "less respectable than a lady, but much more respectable than a bitch".
