This movie was originally intended to be a sequel to Goldginger (aka The Amazing Doctor G (1965)), Italian comedians Franco Franchi and Ciccio Ingrassia's Goldfinger (1964) spoof. When American International Pictures came on board as a co-financier, it was decided to shoot one movie but make two identifiably different films, one each for the Italian and English speaking markets, the Italian was to be a vehicle for the two Italian comedians and the English a Dr. Goldfoot sequel thus achieving two commercial goals of two different national investors. As such, this film was edited into two completely different movies.

Dr. Goldfoot and the Bikini Machine (1965) partially parodied the James Bond movie Goldfinger (1964). This sequel was released about a year after the next James Bond movie Thunderball (1965) and also spoofed that Bond movie too as Dr Goldfoot is seen at times wearing an eye-patch like the villain Largo in Thunderball.
