* HeyItsThatGuy: Herr Falkstein was the last film role played by beloved character actor Richard Haydn, who was (among many other parts) Uncle Max in ''Theatre/TheSoundOfMusic'' and the Caterpillar in ''Disney/AliceInWonderland''.
** Tell anyone who hasn't seen the film that Gene Hackman is the blind hermit and they won't believe you.
** Roger Bart, the original Carmen Ghia (and later one of the follow-up Leo Bloom actors) from TheMusical version of ''Film/TheProducers'' is Frederick in TheMusical version of ''Young Frankenstein''.
** Andrea Martin of ''Series/{{SCTV}}'' fame is Frau Blücher (*WHINNY*!) and vamps up the role in TheMusical for the song "He Vas My Boyfriend."
** Broadway actress Sutton Foster takes the Inga role in TheMusical, and would later do ''Film/ThoroughlyModernMillie'' and ''Theatre/AnythingGoes'' for Broadway too.
** Many younger viewers should recognize the monster, played by Peter Boyle, as [[Series/EverybodyLovesRaymond Frank Barone.]]
** And if Inspector Kemp looks and sounds a bit like [[Series/MalcolmInTheMiddle Otto Mannkusser]], it's because he is. (He was also [[Disney/WinnieThePooh Owl]] and [[Film/TheProducers Franz Liebkind.]]
** Lesser-known example: the sadistic jailer who mashes the Monster's BerserkButton one time too many (scaring him with lit matches) is Oscar Beregi, who played the sadistic Nazi who receives a suitably [[DrivenToMadness karmic punishment]] in the ''TwilightZone'' episode "Death's-Head Revisited".
** In a deleted scene, [[Series/HogansHeroes General Burkhalter]] reads the old Baron's will.
** The old man in Dr Frankenstein's demonstration at the start of the film is the Reverend in BlazingSaddles.
