The Bandit goes on another cross-country run, transporting an elephant from Florida to Texas. And, once again, Sheriff Buford T. Justice is on his tail.
Final 'Smokey and the Bandit' movie for Sally Field.
She's as strong as an ox.
Doc: She IS strong as an ox, NOW she has to get strong as an elephant.
When they enter Mississippi, the Doc is in the back of the truck with the elephant and is holding a Chianti bottle and wine glass. Both were left in the ambulance back in the Everglades.
Outtakes during the credits.
Extensive overdubbing was required for network TV broadcast, in particular replacing a good percentage of Jackie Gleason's dialogue with new lines spoken by an actor with a noticably higher voice. The recurring phrase "Sum-bitch!" became "Scum-bum!" (same as TV prints of the first Smokey and the Bandit (1977)). Even the bloopers at the end needed to be redubbed, with the phrase "your mother's ass" being changed to "your father's face"!
