The Henderson family adopt a friendly Sasquatch but have a hard time trying to keep the legend of 'Bigfoot' a secret.
While in makeup Kevin Peter Hall's already immense height (7'2) was increased to over eight feet. This is evidenced by John Lithgow (who stands at 6'4") when he stands next to Hall
George Henderson Sr.:
I wanted King Kong, you brought me a goddamn giant gerbil. I told you exactly what to do. You didn't even come close.
George Henderson: Maybe it's right on the nose. Maybe it's not vicious at all, Maybe it's gentle and has feelings.
George Henderson Sr.: Where'd you dream up that shit?
When George aims his rifle at Harry through the upstairs window and looks down the scope, the image of Harry is clear. With the target that close, the image would not have appeared that clear and sharp but would have been heavily blurred.
Shots of George sketching in his pad are played over the end credits, inter-cut with memorable scenes from the film playing out in sketch animation form - as though George is sketching memories of their time with Harry.
