* ActingForTwo:
** Joe Grifasi plays the dock worker in the first movie and the Oscar director in the third.
** Also, Richard Griffiths in the second movie; justified in that one of the characters he played was actually a professional impersonator, hired specifically to pose as the other one.
** Jeff Wright plays three characters: the head usher in the first movie, the sex shop assistant in the second and the grocery store manager in the third. Of course, it could be the same guy holding down different jobs in each movie.
** Music/WeirdAlYankovic appears in all three movies. In the first and third movies, he plays himself. However, in the second movie, he plays a criminal holding the police station at gunpoint. (Well, we never hear the guy's name, but ''presumably'' that's not Al..)
* ActorAllusion: ''33 ⅓'' isn't the first time Earl Boen has been [[{{Franchise/Terminator}} a psychologist]].
** "[[ToServeMan It's a]] [[Series/TwilightZone cookbook]]!!"
** In the third movie, Weird Al is Vanna White's escort to the Oscars, a reference to his song "Stuck In A Closet With Vanna White."
* ActorSharedBackground: Drebin mentions that his mother is from Wales. So is Leslie Nielsen's.
* CaliforniaDoubling: The baseball scenes in the first movie, which take place at an Angels home game, were actually filmed in Dodger Stadium. (Los Angeles is doubling for Anaheim here.)
* ChuckCunninghamSyndrome: Johnny the shoeshine guy (the AlmightyJanitor character from the original series) doesn't appear in the movies.
* CreatorInjoke: In ''The Naked Gun: From The Files of Police Squad!'', the montage of Drebin and Jane dating featuring "I'm Into Something Good" ends with [[http://warmbutter.com/img/web/wheelo.jpg a freeze-framed credit saying it's on The Naked Gun Soundtrack on Wheelo Records.]] The movie didn't have a soundtrack album came out[[note]] VareseSarabande issued a 35:46 compilation of tracks from the first two movies a few years later[[/note]], but when La-La Land Records issued all three scores on a 3-disc set, [[http://www.warmbutter.com/cds/nakedgun.php# they have a logo for Wheelo Records on the packaging]]. (And yes, "I'm Into Something Good" ''is'' on the first disc.)
* DevelopmentHell: A reboot, which would be about [[SpinOffspring Drebin's son]], has been tossed around since the mid-2000s, but David Zucker is adamant that it not go ahead unless they can cast actors who have never, ever done comedy.
* FakeNationality: In the first movie, Mexican actor Ricardo Montalban plays an obviously Germanic villain (Vincent Ludwig).
* KeepCirculatingTheTapes: The TV cuts, which feature many extra scenes not found in the theatrical releases. They were never released to VHS, DVD, or Blu-ray, so the only way to legally see them is if you taped them off TV.
* RealLifeRelative: Charlotte Zucker, mother of Jerry and David Zucker, plays Vincent Ludwig's secretary Dominique.
* TheOtherDarrin: Neither Hocken nor Nor(d)berg was played by the same actor as in the series.
* WhatCouldHaveBeen:
** FeeFiFauxPas: Played with in one of the DeletedScenes:
---> '''Frank''': Why you sniveling scum! You're no better than your old man!
---> '''Johnny''': My old man's dead!
---> '''Frank''': Oh, sorry, Johnny, I forgot.
---> '''Johnny''': Yeah, well, maybe this will help refresh your memory a little. (slips Frank a bill)
---> '''Frank''': Oh yeah, he ''is'' dead.
** Bo Derek was considered for the role of Jane.
* YouLookFamiliar: Robert Goulet previously played himself in an episode of ''Series/PoliceSquad'' as the "[[DeathByCameo celebrity guest who dies in the opening scene]]" before playing the villain of the second film.
