It is also the last comedic role for Ah-nold, and one of the last for Sinbad. The film is based on the holiday crazes for both Cabbage Patch Kids dolls and Mighty Morphin Power Ranger toys.

** Also, the PowerRanger toys, which Turbo Man parodies. At the time the Power Ranger series began, no one had ever seen anything like it, and there was a general consensus that it would fail miserably. As a result, most of the major retailers didn't bother with much of the merchandise, which was bought up by smaller, independent retailers instead. Hence, when the show became a hit, stores were woefully understocked, leading to a huge craze during the holidays. To this day, the incident appears in marketing textbooks to illustrate issues of supply and demand.

* RealPlaceBackground: The film takes place in the city of Minneapolis, Minnesota and several local landmarks are seen and mentioned, such as the Mall of America and Lake Minnetonka, and Howard's flight as Turbo Man careens all over the downtown Minneapolis skyline.



* VomitDiscretionShot: When Howard gets caught in the banner while using Turboman's jetpack, he gets nauseated due to rapidly spinning in circles, though the only indication of this the viewer is shown is Howard's cheeks bulging out.

** [[spoiler:Since Myron was bound with cheap-looking rope instead of actual handcuffs, with his hands tied in front of him rather than behind, it suggests that he isn't really being arrested; Dementor's "capture" could have been the show's intended climax. His own PaperThinDisguise must have kept the officers from recognizing him as the mailman bomber, or else he would have gotten far more severe treatment.]]
