* LargeHam: Creator/ChristopherLee is having a great time in this film, but he turns it up a notch even past that during his VillainSong.

** Creator/AlanArkin is both figuratively and ''literally'' chewing the scenery. Captain Invincible is trying to get sober, but he catches sight of several full bottles of booze that start an intense craving. He writhes around, suffering flashbacks, and actually bites a chunk out of the kitchen counter.

** Captain Invincible is in a deli, trying to take down some human thugs in a nonlethal way, for questioning, by hurling pie after pie at them with superspeed. Eventually he hasn't got another pie to throw at them, so what does he throw instead? A pi. As in, a large sign in the shape of the numerical symbol known as "pi".

* TheCastShowoff: Christopher Lee said in his autobiography that the main reason he did the film was that he'd never previously had an opportunity to show his musical abilities on-screen. "Name Your Poison" (the song linked above) even gives him lines in German and Italian to show off his command of multiple languages.
