** Don Simpson's 1993 comic, adapted from the Delos W. Lovelace novelization, originally had a scene it where Kong destroys the {{Hindenburg}}. It got cut after Simpson decided it was in poor taste and too bizarre.

* FirstInstallmentWins: While there have been many sequels and remakes, the original 1933 film is the version most often spoken of by fans.

** Denham in the original. The trip is his idea, as is the choice to bring the ape back to New York, where it promptly wreaks havoc and causes more deaths but he is never called out for his actions.

** While the 2005 version has son spectacular work done on Kong and New York. Most of the scenes on Skull Island look rather hokey and rushed. The Brontosaurus chase in particular, due to how obviously green-screened the actors in those shots are.

** They did build a to-scale animatronic of Kong's head and shoulders for the 1933 film. It has several quick appearances, the most notable being Kong's unveiling in new York and during his rampage in the native village (the close-ups where a villager is in his mouth). Though it was pretty motionless (only the eyes and mouth could move, and limited at that), it still worked fairly well.

Trivia!
* RunningTheAsylum: The 2005 version. The original 1933 Kong is Peter Jackson's favorite film, having been an influence on him ever since he was a boy, and remaking it was a life goal of his, even before he tackled ''Film/TheLordOfTheRings''. Some point to this as why the remake, while not a ''bad'' movie, felt rather overlong and self-indulgent; he was too close to the original film to give it the same level of quality as the LOTR series.

** His decision to draw Kong away from Times Square probably causes more death and destruction than if he'd just let him be.
