* BTeamSequel: Penelope Spheeris, who directed the first film, was approached by Paramount to direct the sequel.

** 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''.
