The Producers is the 2005 film version of Mel Brooks' stage musical, itself based on Brooks' earlier film starring Zero Mostel and Gene Wilder.

Jim Henson's Creature Shop provided "creature effects," namely Tom the cat and a troupe of trained pigeons kept by playwright Franz Liebkind. Though real pigeons were used for some shots, puppet pigeons were used for a sequence wherein the pigeons danced and performed the "Sieg heil!" movements. Pigeons included Adolf Pigeon.

Victor Yerrid served as lead puppeteer for the animals. Individual pigeon puppeteers included Drew Massey, Joey Mazzarino, Fran Brill, Tyler Bunch, Tim Lagasse, Peter Linz, Matt Vogel, Martin Robinson, and James Kroupa, with Brooks himself voicing Hilda the pigeon.
