** Joe Grifasi plays the dock worker in the first movie and the Oscar director in the third.
** Also, Richard Griffiths in the second movie; justified in that one of the characters he played was actually a professional impersonator, hired specifically to pose as the other one.
** Jeff Wright plays three characters: the head usher in the first movie, the sex shop assistant in the second and the grocery store manager in the third. Of course, it could be the same guy holding down different jobs in each movie.
** Music/WeirdAlYankovic appears in all three movies. In the first and third movies, he plays himself. However, in the second movie, he plays a criminal holding the police station at gunpoint. (Well, we never hear the guy's name, but ''presumably'' that's not Al..)

* CreatorInjoke: In ''The Naked Gun: From The Files of Police Squad!'', the montage of Drebin and Jane dating featuring "I'm Into Something Good" ends with [[http://warmbutter.com/img/web/wheelo.jpg a freeze-framed credit saying it's on The Naked Gun Soundtrack on Wheelo Records.]] The movie didn't have a soundtrack album came out[[note]] VareseSarabande issued a 35:46 compilation of tracks from the first two movies a few years later[[/note]], but when La-La Land Records issued all three scores on a 3-disc set, [[http://www.warmbutter.com/cds/nakedgun.php# they have a logo for Wheelo Records on the packaging]]. (And yes, "I'm Into Something Good" ''is'' on the first disc.)
