The Henderson family adopt a friendly Sasquatch but have a hard time trying to keep the legend of 'Bigfoot' a secret.
The scene when George (John Lithgow) sees Harry approach the deer head on the wall, and exclaims "oh dear!" had multiple meanings; one being that the director of the movie is named William Dear.
That sucker's history!
Dr. Wallace Wrightwood: Don't kid yourself. This is the part he's good at.
All of the baby pigeons roosting on Harry's shoulder just disappear a few seconds before he jumps out of the tree.
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.
