When the two officers first enter Dr. Giggles house, Officer Reitz grabs a piece of cloth that got snagged on the wall. When he reads it with the flashlight, it reads: awood. It is in big, blurry black letters. Later on in the film when Officer Reitz is at the police station looking up files on the computer, he pulls out the cloth and the letters are different. They still read 'awood', but are now clearer and there is more writing on the cloth as well.
The German VHS version was cut by just under 4 mins. to secure the FSK-18 rating. This cut version still found its way onto the notorious "Index for Youth Endangering Media" (BPjM) from 1994-2016. In November 2017 Dr. Giggles was officially released on DVD and Blu-Ray, featuring the same cut version as previously on VHS.
