** Otherwise refreshingly averted. Robert Jayne plays Melvin Plug in the first and third film and as a recurring role in the series, and both Tony Genaro as Miguel and Ariana Richards as Mindy Sterngood appear in the first and third films. However, Mindy was later played by Tinsley Grimes in her one appearance on the series.

* ExecutiveMeddling: The studio suggested Michael Gross in the hopes that his ''Series/FamilyTies'' fame would benefit the movie. Producers were hesitant for that very reason because Steven Keaton and Burt Gummer are practically opposites. However, during the audition, Gross demonstrated his range and greatly impressed them. Effectively a positive example of this trope.

* ScrewedByTheNetwork: The TV series. Stiffed in terms of promotion, shown completely out of order, and then canceled out of spite when it got good ratings anyway.
** The series was also filmed at the same time as ''Tremors 4'', which meant that Burt had to be left out of the show at times.

* WhatCouldHaveBeen: Had a second season of the series come to pass such proposed developments would've included: more about the origins of Mixmaster; Mixmaster-affected bugs that eat only rubber; Burt trying his hand at online dating and meeting someone... only to learn it's Nancy; Larry taking more of a role in helping defend the town; and Rosalita revealed to have a shady past.

** A proposed fifth movie would've been another SequelGoesForeign, with Burt traveling to Australia.
*** This one has now happened... albeit substitute Africa for Australia.

Added DiffLines:

* WrittenInAbsence: Filming on ''Tremors 4'' coincided with the TV series, so Burt couldn't appear in the last two episodes (going by production order). In "The Sounds of Silence," he is said to be in Idaho, buying a periscope at a scrapyard. In "The Key," he's off in Montana on a commando weekend. ("The Key" did feature a clip of Burt's survival video playing in the store, but it was reused from a previous episode.)

Added DiffLines:

* CaliforniaDoubling: Perfection, Nevada is actually a set just outside of Independence, California. Those huge mountains are the east slopes of the Sierra Nevadas, with Mt. Whitney being visible in a few shots.

* AdoredByTheNetwork: There was a time in the early 2000s when the [[{{Syfy}} Sci-Fi Channel]] couldn't go a week without showing at least one ''Tremors'' movie, or, more than likely, all four. This eventually led to ''Tremors: The Series'', which was...[[ScrewedByTheNetwork not so beloved]].

Added DiffLines:

** The Graboids were originally going to have a fleshy hood over their beaks that would retract when they came out of the ground. Studio executives decided that it looked too much like a foreskin, and so the hood was dropped in favor of the now-iconic multi-part beak.
