Random Trivia For This Title:

  • There is a good amount of similarity between the pod in this movie and the one in Explorers, also directed by Joe Dante.
  • After Putter changed into the Cowboy, Robert Picardo had a lot of quick work to do. Just as he went off camera, he ran around behind the camera while a stand-in took his place. He then ran all the way to the bathroom, took off his break-away clothes and switched wigs with the help from a person behind a fake wall. Speedy Gonzales, watch out.
