There are a few scenes that were not featured in the film, but are storyboarded as deleted scenes in film's DVD releases. Some of these scenes include: Dr. Cockroach, The Missing Link, B.O.B., and General Monger plotting to fight off Gallaxhar's clones to reach a Robot Probe to fly it back to Gallaxhar's ship and rescue Susan. Another scene is in the Situation Room where the President and his advisors call General Monger and convince him to return the monsters to the base due to the trail of destruction left in San Francisco.
General W.R. Monger:
We had the prison psychologist redecorate your cell, try to keep you all calm like.
Susan Murphy: But I don't want a poster. I want a real kitten, hanging from a real tree.
After Derek completes his TV weather forecast, a director can be heard saying "cut". You don't "cut" a live TV broadcast: this is a film term. The correct term should be "we're out", (meaning off air) or just "out".
During the closing credits, there is an additional scene in the War Room where the President prepares a latte for General Monger and pushes the wrong big red button. After hastily saying something about a contingency plan, he sticks his head seemingly out of the screen to address the audience: "Who wants to freeze my head?"
The film has a localized version in Australia where the News Reporter is not voiced by Ed Helms but instead by David Koch, a co-presenter of the morning show Sunrise (2002) seen on Channel 7 Australia-wide.
