It is revealed that the three children's surname is Ward. This could be a hint of irony as the children are "wards of the state" until they are adopted.

The three kids in the film appeared in Goosebumps (1995). Crawley and Jones appeared in the episodes "The Haunted Mask" and "The Haunted Mask 2" as Chuck and Noah. Jones appears in all seasons, except season three.

Cody Jones and Tabitha Lupien appeared in The Santa Clause (1994).
