* TheMerch: There was a considerable amount when the film was originally released, most notably a comic book adaptation and a few toys. Unfortunately, because they were all released before the script was finished, they either looked nothing like the finished film or contained story points and that were cut out. A new line of more accurate vinyl toys was produced in 1999 by Todd [=MacFarlane=] to coincide with the film's release on DVD. The 2012 blu ray similarly had a digital storybook and a more faithful comic adaptation released alongside it.



* WritingByTheSeatOfYourPants: The film began production without an ending.
** Because of this, some of the early tie-in products made from the film like the album's liner notes, the original comic book adaptation, and other promotional items look nothing like what was shown in the final film and feature many abandoned/rejected concepts and characters. This was vindicated though after the 1999 and 2012 re-releases lead to the release of more film-accurate products including Mcfarlane/Spawn action figures, a storybook, and a more faithful comic adaptation!

* CowboyBebopAtHisComputer: It's quite amazing how many people think that the Beatles are living in [[BritainIsOnlyLondon London]] during the film's early stages -- even though Ringo's first line is about how ''Liverpool'' can sometimes be a lonely place.

* ScrewedByTheLawyers: A home video release in the United States didn't come until the film's re-release in 1999 because of a lawsuit between MGM/UA and Subafilms (who produced the film) over the home video rights. Both parties eventually settled when restoration of the movie began.

* FollowTheLeader: This film was arguably a strong influence on 1974's ''SpaceBattleshipYamato,'' and thus indirectly on ''Franchise/StarWars'', ''Series/{{Battlestar Galactica|1978}}'', and pretty much all of modern SpaceOpera.
