Two of the supporting characters, Little Audrey and Lotta, are loosely based on characters from Harvey Comics who published Baby Huey in comic book format during the late 50's and beyond. They compromise part of Harvey's "little girl" quartet of comedy comics: Little Audrey, Little Lotta, Little Dot and Wendy the Good Little Witch.

Peter Jurasik and Stephen Furst have cameos as rival little league baseball coaches in one of the first scenes in this film. In the science fiction series Babylon 5 they had long running roles as alien ambassador Londo Molari and his diplomatic attaché Vir Cotto.
