* ActorAllusion: Creator/MaryWoronov once again plays a villainous principal like she did in the first film. The only difference is that here, she's ANaziByAnyOtherName whose regime CrossesTheLineTwice at the mere sight of someone singing or dancing.

* WhatCouldHaveBeen: Musical artists considered to appear as Riff's favorite were Music/ToddRundgren, Music/CheapTrick, Music/{{Devo}}, and Music/VanHalen.
** The role of Eaglebauer was meant for EddieDeezen, but he was busy working with Creator/StevenSpielberg on ''Film/NineteenFortyOne'', so the role went to Creator/ClintHoward.

* GambitRoulette: There's no way Riff and her friend planned on getting their tickets back because they didn't plan that method--the RADIO STATION did. What's more, the station itself didn't hear of Riff's latest confrontation with Principal Togar, making this a mix of this and SpannerInTheWorks.
