Did You Know?


In the bar scene, the video game the Gremlin is playing is Star Wars (1983).


Stripe: Yum?
Stripe: AH. Yum. Yum.


When Mr. Hanson is calling the gremlin to come out from under the desk, his mouth does not move with the words being said.

Crazy Credits

At the very end of the closing credits, once the theme has ended, you can hear the sounds of gremlins laughing.

Alternate Versions

The special edition DVD contains the following deleted scenes:

  • Mr. Peltzer is looking in a store in Chinatown, with a shopkeeper who doesn't know a word of English, when he is greeted by the Chinese boy, who leads Mr. Peltzer to the boy's grandfather's shop.
  • Billy is lectured by his boss, Mr. Corben, for being 17 minutes late.
  • Billy looks at his drawings, for a comic strip, in his room.
  • Billy sees the reverend on the street. The reverend tries to give Billy his Christmas card, but he can't find it in his pile, so he just tells Billy he will mail it to him.
  • Kate shows Billy Mrs. Deagle's plans to sell their houses and build a Nuclear plant. They are then discovered by Gerald, who says he will let them out easy if Kate will go out with him. Kate refuses, and Gerald notes she is tough, just like him.
  • Stripe listens to a bunch of carolers, while hidden in the snow (actually, according to the commentary, he is singing along and making the carolers wonder who's off key, but there is no audio for Stripe).
  • Mr. Futterman tells his wife that Mrs. Deagle has closed down the noodle factory where he worked for good. His wife then reassures him that there is more to life than macaroni.
  • Billy and Kate find Mr. Corben with a clock smashed on his head. They then find Gerald in the vault. Billy tries to free Gerald, however Gerald thinks that Billy wants to free him just so Billy and Kate would get promotions (Gerald presumably would now have Mr. Corben's job). Billy then closes the vault and tells Kate that Gerald will be better off in there and they will come and get him later.
