* PetsHomageName: Beethoven himself was named after the composer when he seemed to react positively to Emily playing Beethoven's 5th Symphony on the piano. In Beethoven's 2nd, in keeping with the tradition, one of his puppies is named Tchaikovsky.

The original film, released in 1992, focused on Beethoven's adoption by the Newton family: curmudgeon father George (Charles Grodin), earnest wife Alice (Bonnie Hunt), CoolBigSis[=/=]BrattyTeenageDaughter Ryce (Nicholle Tom of ''Series/TheNanny'' fame), geeky son Ted (Christopher Castile of ''Series/StepByStep'' fame), and CheerfulChild Emily (Sarah Rose Karr of ''Film/KindergartenCop'' fame). Unbeknownst to them, however, Beethoven is an escaped would-be test animal for a lab run by Dr. Herman Varnick (Dean Jones, who would later voice George Newton in the animated series; Nicholle Tom was the only other cast member to return for the series, providing Ryce's voice), a veterinarian who sounds like {{Satan}} and is stealing his customers' dogs for use in unethical experiments.

Reportedly, the American Veterinary Association wasn't happy about the film featuring an evil veterinarian who uses dogs as ballistic test dummies, and wrote a scathing letter to Jack Valenti, then-president of the Motion Picture Association of America. Probably as a result, the sequel has a 'safe' villain in the form of Regina, a [[Disney/OneHundredAndOneDalmatians Cruella de Vil]]-esque RichBitch played by Debi Mazar. ''Beethoven's 2nd'' was the last film to feature the original cast and the last to be released theatrically. It was also the last film to involve Reitman as executive producer.

* JerkassHasAPoint: In the first movie, George opposes adopting Beethoven--saying he's a cute little puppy for now but will grow up to be a big, destructive dog. And while others might be more forgiving of it, the messes Beethoven causes would tick anyone off.

* WoundedGazelleGambit: Dr. Varnick pulls this on Beethoven by pouring fake blood on his arm to make it look like Beethoven attacked him so he'll have an excuse to have him euthanized with the threat to press charges otherwise. Thankfully, it backfires against him later since Emily saw the whole thing and when George goes to confront him, his arm isn't covered in a cast or stitches.
