* ItWillNeverCatchOn: Donald Sutherland was offered either a percentage of the gross, or cash up front. He chose cash, sure that the film would flop. If he had taken the former option, he would've raked in several million dollars.

** KevinBacon, both in the film and real life. As this was his first role, when he went to the premiere, he wasn't allowed to sit with the rest of the cast because the ushers didn't believe he was in it. He had to sit in the back with everyone else.

* CaliforniaDoubling: While Faber College is supposedly in Pennsylvania (or Tennessee, if the state flag in the tribunal scene is any indication), filming actually took place at the University of Oregon. While WordOfGod has the setting in Pennsylvania, it isn't explicitly stated in the film, although Flounder is referred to as being from Harrisburg, and there is a Dickinson College in Pennsylvania (though it isn't named after Emily Dickinson), the general vibe seems to be of the Nowhere, USA type.

* CreatorCameo: Creator/JohnLandis sacrificed his heavy beard and much of his hair to appear in the film as a cafeteria dishwasher who catches Bluto mooching and tries, unsuccessfully, to stop him. The scene was filmed, but despite his personal sacrifices, Landis eventually also sacrificed the scene.

** "I used to do this with Dawn all the time!" "I know... she told me!" Otter has an AsideGlance when Dawn's roommate says this, as he made up the relationship to get pity sex. He doesn't comment out loud on it because, well, it's proof that it's working.



* IncessantMusicMadness: At the toga party, Stephen Bishop in [[TheCameo a cameo]] is playing a guitar and singing when [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8V_hCqO6UQs Bluto happens by]]. After listening to the singing for a while, Bluto takes the guitar away from the guy, smashes it to pieces against a wall and then [[HypocriticalHumor utters a halfhearted "Sorry."]]

* PutOnABus: A small joke on the newspaper after the toga party reveals that Mrs. Wormer was sent to visit relatives, which more likely than not was a euphemism for rehab.
