* DVDCommentary: All of the Goonies reunited many years later for the commentary, alongside Richard Donner. Unfortunately because the commentary recording session started late, Creator/SeanAstin had to leave in the middle to attend a function for co-star Joe Pantoliano.

** Sean Astin (who played Mikey in The Goonies) has said in a couple interviews that he always regretted everyone's demeanor while making that music video because him, the other child actors, and the crew were all very low-energy and catatonic, giving the impression that none of them wanted to work with Cyndi. In truth, though, everyone loved working with her, and everyone's indifferent attitude was because they had just finished making the film and everyone was exhausted. Austin has said he's wished he could get back in touch with Cyndi to explain all this, as he feels parts of her animosity towards the song had to do with everyone's behavior during filming.

* TheCastShowoff: Jake Fratelli sings Italian opera in a few scenes: [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JgIUsiD-o8M#t=39s "Una furtiva lagrima" from ''L'elisir d'amore'']] when feeding Sloth and ''MadameButterfly'' when Chunk [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aB7UwtkAsUQ flags him down on the road]].

* ThrowItIn: Most of Chunk's confessions (except the fake puke story) were based on actor Jeff Cohen's life. According to Jeff, it was a different kid who was kicked out of fat camp for pigging out.

* CreatorBacklash: Music/CyndiLauper had such an unpleasant experience producing "Goonies 'r' Good Enough," first being forced to tack the title of the movie onto the title for publicity and then having CreativeDifferences with Richard Donner for the music video, that she grew to loath the song. It didn't appear on her compilations until 2003 and she didn't perform it live until a year later. She eventually warmed up to it when she was asked to record a parody of it for the ''WesternAnimation/BobsBurgers'' episode, "The Belchies."

* AdaptationExpansion: The novelization extends the story further and reveals details not shown in the film.
** One-Eyed Willy (real name William B. Pordobel) was originally a jester who got kicked out of multiple Spanish courts for being too vulgar, so he turned to piracy.
** Brand is claustrophobic, which Mikey first experienced when they got trapped in an elevator. Being in the caves triggers a relapse.
** A series of excerpts from the local newspaper reveals what happens after the Goonies save the Goon Docks, such as the country club getting bought out by Mikey's father, the fate of the Fratellis as they are sent back to prison, and Sloth adapting to his new life as a member of Chunk's family.

Added DiffLines:

* NamesTheSame: Coincidence or not, one of ''Film/TheGoonies'' is Brand (Brandon Walsh), played by Creator/JoshBrolin. Several years later, in 1990, the same character of Brandon Walsh appeared once again on ''Series/BeverlyHills90210'', this time played by Jason Priestley.
* OrphanedReference: At the end of the movie, Data tells the news reporters that the "octopus was really scary" which actually refers to a DeletedScene. Given that Data was likely to make stuff up, this artifact is not really disruptive. The octopus scene is included in the TV version of the movie though.

** A pair of trained gorillas escape during the police chase and cause havoc around the country club. They're specifically trained to drive a tiny red car, which causes Troy (much-deserved) grief when they see his red Ferarri and drive off with it.
