Added DiffLines:

* RecycledTheSeries: Lasted barely a season, mainly because it was heavily changed to the point where it could be considered InNameOnly. Among other things, the setting was changed from Chicago to L.A., Ferris was now an obnoxious nerd who [[SmallNameBigEgo only believed he was wildly popular]] (and attended school without complaint!), Cameron was still neurotic but lacked the tragic {{backstory}} from the film, thus making him a figure of fun, Sloane was now catty and shallow (the spelling of her name was also changed to ''Sloan''), [[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking Ferris's parents were now named Bill and Barbara instead of Tom and Katie]], and the list goes on and on. Not even a very young Creator/JenniferAniston (as Jeannie) could save it. John Hughes actually did not like the series himself, and actually tried to block its release. Unfortunately, he was unable to do so, and the best that he could do was to demand that NBC and Paramount not use his name to promote the series.

* AllThereInTheScript: Creator/CharlieSheen's stoner character is named Garth Volbeck, though the film doesn't mention this.
** Also, a deleted backstory shows that Ferris and Garth were friends in the eighth grade. Garth's family's pretty messed up, and Ferris tried to help him and be his friend, but Garth eventually dropped out of high school and wound up in the police station next to Jeannie. That's why Ferris is so intent on giving Cameron a good time - [[TearJerker he blames himself for not helping Garth enough when he could.]]
** According to the original script, Sloane has a brother and her father left the family for a twenty-five year old bimbo.
* AuthorAppeal: Creator/JohnHughes freely admitted that the museum scene was self-indulgent on his part.

** The movie didn't have a soundtrack album for decades because Hughes himself blocked one back in the 1980s, because he felt the movie's music was too eclectic to make a coherent album. Mere were delighted when La-La Land Records released an official album (there have been ''bootleg'' releases) in 2016.

Added DiffLines:

* FollowTheLeader: After this movie became hugely successful, many teen shows throughout the next decade or so (particularly those aimed at children) implemented a Ferris Bueller-like character (i.e. Zack Morris from ''Series/SavedByTheBell'', Ronnie Pinsky from ''SaluteYourShorts'', Parker Lewis from ''Series/ParkerLewisCantLose'', etc.). Some of these were just shallow/one-dimensional caricatures of Ferris; others weren't.
