After Myers had completed providing the voice for the character, when the film was well into production, he asked to re-record all of his lines with a Scottish accent , similar to that his mother used when she told him bedtime stories and also used for his roles in other films, such as So I Married an Axe Murderer and Austin Powers: The Spy Who Shagged Me .  According to the DVD commentary, he had also tried using country and Canadian accents.  After hearing the alternative, Katzenberg agreed to redo scenes in the film, saying, "It was so good we took $4m worth of animation out and did it again."  A point Myers disputes, saying "it didn’t cost the studio “millions of dollars,” as rumored. “What it meant is instead of me going in for ten sessions, I went in for twenty sessions. I got paid the same.".  Because of Myers voicing the character, more ideas began to come. There were clearer story points, fresher gags and comedy bits.  "I got a letter from Spielberg thanking me so much for caring about the character," Myers said. "And he said the Scottish accent had improved the movie."
