Trivia

Tim Kazurinsky's character was to be called Mr. Schewchuk, as the name appears on the store window. Jerry Paris changed the name to Sweetchuck, after Bubba Smith flubbed several takes trying to pronounce "Schewchuk". See more »

Goofs

When Mauser is accidentally pushed down the hole, atop the old zoo, the rock formations in the foreground are clearly made of fiberglass, as evidenced when he falls in and it shakes. Additionally, as they're supposed to be on top of the cave, the setting of the roof clearly shows it was built right out in front of the old zoo. See more »

Quotes

Mahoney: You have the right to remain silent. You have the right to a court appointed attorney. You have the right to sing the blues. You have the right to cable TV... that's very important. You have the right to sublet. You have the right to paint the walls... no loud colors.
