* FunnyAneurysmMoment: Roscoe's efforts to stop the Gumball Rally were probably originally motivated by a desire for highway safety. (He is a police officer.) The fact that he fails became a Funny Aneurysm Moment when his actor, Norman Burton, died in a car accident.
* HilariousInHindsight: The main antagonist of the film is a somewhat inept sheriff named Roscoe. A few years later came ''Series/TheDukesOfHazzard'' whose antagonist is an even more inept sheriff named Roscoe.
