* TheOtherDarrin: The sequel recast the roles of George, Ursula, and Ursula's mother; only Thomas Haden Church (Lyle) and John Cleese (Ape) reprised their roles from the first movie.

He even came up with a joke for the movie that he would come back a bloated mess and be lured off the set by donuts, but it wasn't used.
