- Enforced Method Acting: When driving to the set, Clint Howard would scream the entire way there in order to achieve Gregory's hoarse and scratchy voice.
- Playing Against Type: The film is the only mainstream cinema picture of the adult movie director Paul Norman.
- What Could Have Been: A Kickstarter campaign was made in 2014 to produce a sequel, entitled Ice Cream Man 2: Sundae Bloody Sundae, for the film's 20th anniversary. Despite being backed by Clint Howard himself, who was set to reprise his role as Gregory, the campaign was unsuccessful, with only a little over $4,000 being donated out of the $300,000 goal. Despite the fact the creators have claimed that they'll find other ways to amass the money needed to make the film, nothing has been heard of the project since.
