Although all three were back during the days when we were inspecting DWA 2-D movies very carefully for filed off ex-Disney serial numbers:
Particularly, the "Animal western" and "Aztec drama" that Disney had eventually abandoned/restructured in mid-production, which got some fans wondering how many leaks of "Treasure Planet" had found their way into Sinbad.

Not to mention, following on the heels of the "Lion King/Hamlet" alibi, El Dorado's strange reluctance to admit it was a version of Rudyard Kipling (but he's public-domain, isn't he?), and Katzenberg's insistence it was a "tribute to Hope & Crosby...That's why 'Road' is in the title!"
That was so darn weird, it HAD to be suspicious. :?
