A third film was in talks afterwards, but was eventually canned due to scripts not meeting expectations. Johnny 5 would eventually return in a TV short named ''Hot Cars, Cold Facts'' with his having his own home and car. Even though it was primarily an educational film regarding vehicle ownership and insuring, the comedy of the two movies remains.

* DarkerAndEdgier: Part II had some pure nightmare fuelish moments. Such as Oscar and his gang destroying Johnny 5 and leaving him for dead. Then there is the fact that Part II was the one movie where it looked like his life was really in danger.

* CaliforniaDoubling:
** The sequel takes place in the USA, but was shot in Toronto. It was rumoured that the crew had to go out of their way to add litter to the shots to maintain to the illusion of an American city, but it kept getting cleaned up by City Services when they were on break.
** Averted in the first film. The house in Astoria, OR isn't too far from where the opening scenes of ''Film/TheGoonies'' were shot.

The second film (''Short Circuit 2'', 1988) centers on [[ChangingOfTheGuard a minor character from the first film]], Benjamin Jahrvi, who helped program Number Five and was blackballed as a result. Living out of a truck, Ben now hustles little NOVA-inspired toys in Manhattan, but he's having problems getting production up to speed. So, Stephanie sends Number Five, now calling himself Johnny Five, who is a one robot production line. Unfortunately, Ben's business partner Fred Ritter sees other opportunities. But all this takes a back seat to Johnny being manipulated by thieves to help in a bank heist, which shatters Johnny's naiveté and leaves him wanting revenge.

* HonestCorporateExecutive: Howard Marner, as he only sent out his military forces to capture Number Five as he believed him to be a dangerous robot with a laser cannon. Howard also overlaps with CorruptCorporateExecutive in a downplayed sense, for viewing the sentient Number Five as another robot of his assembly line that has gone rogue and needs to be recaptured to reprogram.
