- Sequel Gap: While not as large as some of the other Direct-to-Video DVD sequels/midquels, it came out in December 2006 while the original came out in July 1981, almost 25 ½ years after the first film.
- The Cast Showoff: Justified as they're a singing group, but the Singin' Strays gives Reba McEntire, Patrick Swayze, Jim Cummings, and Vicki Lawrence the opportunity to show off their singing skills.
- The Other Darrin: All the voice actors from the first film were replaced. Justified since the original actors had either died or aged out of their roles.
