The opening credits feature cartoon representations of beauty pageant entrants with puns for titles: Miss Conduct, Miss Represent, Miss Conception, Miss Hap, Miss Fortune, Miss Used, Miss Shaped, Miss Trust, Miss Handled, Miss Manage, Miss Placed, Miss Spent, Miss Stake, Miss Demeanour, and Miss Adventure.

As with many of the Carry On films the cinema version was cut by the BBFC to receive an 'A' (PG) certificate. Some dialogue was replaced, including 'knee trembler' (which was changed to 'snogging') and the fight between Hope and Dawn was reduced to remove shots of Hope attempting to pull Dawn's underwear off. The latter scene was fully restored in later video/DVD releases.
