* ThrowItIn: The scene with Wayne and Garth talking on the hood of their car was the last scene filmed. Since everyone was tired and just wanted the movie done, they ad-libbed it. Mike Myers' hysterical response to Dana Carvey's question (about whether he found Bugs Bunny attractive when he put on a dress and played Girl Bunny) was genuine.

** The reason Wayne and Garth rarely turn their heads to look at one another, instead turning their entire torsos in one anther's direction, was the result of everyone's neck getting sore from doing so many takes of the headbanging scene.

** Mike Myers' original idea for ''Waynes World 2'' was as a remake of the 1949 British comedy from EalingStudios ''Film/PassportToPimlico''. He went ahead and wrote the script without checking whether Paramount Studios had obtained the rights first. By the time it went into pre-production it was too late. Buying the rights at that late stage would have delayed the release and cost the studio millions of dollars. Paramount exec Sherry Lansing brought Myers to her office and angrily yelled at him, threatening to sue him and take away his house unless he rewrote the screenplay. A chastened Myers agreed and wrote a new story for ''Waynes World 2''.

** Cassandra's horrible jungle themed music video in the first movie is a possible reference to Music/PearlJam, who reportedly went through the same thing for their song Even Flow. They were so unhappy with the finished result they prevented its release and swore off music videos forever.
