* BreakawayPopHit: MichaelJackson's performance of "Ben" (which was written for the original movie's 1973 sequel) is probably more popular than either the book or the two movies.
* HeyItsThatGuy:
** [[Film/BackToTheFuture George McFly]] (or [[Film/CharliesAngels Creepy Thin Man]]) is Willard Stiles
** R Lee Ermey as Mister Martin (2003 version)
** Ernest Borgnine as Mister Martin (1971 version)
** Meredith Baxter played Eve in ''Ben''
* HeyItsThatVoice: An odd case of this trope occurring in a live-action movie. In the 2003 film, one of Willard's co-workers is played by Laara Sadiq (Chi-Chi from the Ocean dub of ''DragonBallZ''), and it's ''very'' obvious whenever the character opens her mouth. For what it's worth, the character is named Janice Mantis in the credits, but is [[NoNameGiven never referred to by name at all in the movie proper]].
* KeepCirculatingTheTapes: The book is out of print (though it can be found on amazon, the copies are often in horrible condition) and the 1971 movie is only on VHS.
** YouTube [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u3Fndi62nGI to the rescue]].
** The book was ''finally'' reprinted by Valacount Books in 2013.
