Barry Humphries (The Narrator) and Eric Bana (Damien) have both previously lent their voices to Finding Nemo (2003), playing the sharks Bruce and Anchor respectively.
Mary Dinkle's eyes were the color of muddy puddles. Her birthmark, the color of poo.
In the U.S., a can with the label "tinned spaghetti" is shown. While this wording would be used in Australia, it is rather unlikely in the U.S., where "canned spaghetti" would be the preferred term.
Before the end credits the next quote appears: "God gave us our relatives; thank God we can choose our friends" by Ethel Watts Mumford.
