** It also shows that the Deltas are not quite CoolLoser or [[CoolPeopleRebelAgainstAuthority Cool Rebel]] types; they just ''think'' they are. For example, the band they hire to play doesn't ''actually'' like them, and it's strongly implied that Otis Day sees the Deltas as little more than a steady booking that he tolerates. Likewise, Otter, the basis of the teen comedy version of TheCasanova, is not a slick ladies' man and is perceived by most of the women in the film as a desperate lech. Even the OfficialCouple, Boon and Katy, are ultimately shown to be a poor match due to their immaturity, and the end credits imply that they have a tumultuous, unhealthy, and ultimately short-loived relationship. Much of this is because the film is actually an irreverent satire of the nostalgia-driven teen dramas of the 1970s, most notably ''Film/AmericanGraffiti'', something later [[SexComedy teen Sex Comedies]] missed because they were merely aping the surface features of ''Animal House.''

** The film was shot on the campus of the University of Oregon. Dean Faber's office was the university president's actual office. The Delta House was a former Phi Sigma Kappa frat house, which was then empty; it was torn down in 1986. The club where the Deltas see Otis Day and the Knights again is the Dexter Lake Club, Dexter, OR.

* 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.

* WhatHappenedToTheMouse: Whatever happened to Cissy, Flounder's steady girl? Otter walks off with her, but later winds up with Mrs. Wormer. Did he have them both? If anyone could pull it off, it would be him. But if so, Flounder didn't seem to notice.
** Also, what happened to the Dickinson College girls after the Deltas left the nightclub? They're seen walking home later, but what transpired in between?

** "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.
