PG-13 | | Comedy, Sci-Fi
The writers weren't sure what the Martians should sound like, so the script had "ack, ack, ack, ack" for all of their lines of dialogue. That became the Martians' actual dialogue.

When General Casey is in his jeep on his way to greet the Martians in the Nevada desert, his jeep has 4 star flags on the front. However, he is only a 3 star general.
Special effects: No living animals were barbecued during the production of this film.
A television ad had Marsha Dale saying (over the desicion of what to do about the Martians): "Kick the crud out of them!" which was an edit to what she said in the theatrical version: "Kick the crap out of them!"
