* ActorAllusion:
** [[Film/{{Superbad}} Seth & Evan]] are sausages.
*** While on the topic of ''Film/{{Superbad}}'', Firewater says "Fuck me, right?", which is a line from the movie ([[BeamMeUpScotty although Hader didn't deliver the line, Hill did]]).
** [[Creator/SethRogen Frank]] [[Film/PineappleExpress coughs after smoking weed]].
** Conrad Vernon [[WesternAnimation/{{Shrek}} yet again]] portrays an anthropomorphic food character.
** Nick Kroll was a Douche [[Series/ParksAndRecreation before]].
*** In addition, Douche is similar to Nick Kroll's Bobby Bottleservice character.
** This is the [[WesternAnimation/AquaTeenHungerForce third]] [[Series/ManSeekingWoman time]] that Bill Hader has been in something that involves an AdolfHitlarious character (albeit this time, he doesn't play it).
** This one may be a coincidence, but considering WhatCouldHaveBeen, Creator/PaulRudd [[spoiler: is [[Film/CaptainAmericaCivilWar used as a giant weapon again]]]].

** Seth Rogen spent nearly a decade pitching the film, with the fist of the AnimatinAgeGhetto coming down hard each time on both the obscene humor and religious message. Even Sony initially dismissed it before he wrote another draft two years later (tellingly, this same studio had no problem making Rogen's ''Film/TheInterview''. You know, the movie about assassinating the ''very much alive at the time'' Kim Jung Un?). Then the Sony hack in 2014 forced him to rewrite it ''again'' just as physical production was starting.

* TroubledProduction: Rogen had been trying to pitch the idea for eight years, but nobody in Hollywood seemed open to the idea until Megan Ellison and eventually Sony came along. Progress was further stalled when an early draft of the script was leaked to the internet during the 2014 Sony hack. Then, when physical production ''did'' start, the animators [[https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/arts-and-entertainment/wp/2016/08/17/for-audiences-sausage-party-was-a-laugh-riot-for-some-animators-it-was-a-nightmare/#comments were frequently abused]] by the two directors, Tiernan reportedly moreso, who demanded they work overtime for no pay and even threatened to blacklist them should they not comply. As Canada doesn't have an animation union, the animators were either forced to comply or quit and have their names removed (the credits list about ''half'' of the artists' who's work is in the final product).

** There were several changes made to the script during production at short notice and with little communication to the studio, who had little to no idea what to do next.
