The film's original title was "Teenie Weenies", which was rejected on the grounds that it sounded too much like a kiddies' film with no appeal to adults. See more »
After the kids are shrunk and Szalinski destroys his machine, he thoroughly sweeps the floor of the attic, ridding it of both the broken microchips and the kids. In spite of this, his shrunken thinking couch and chair are still on the attic floor undisturbed an hour or so later. See more »
I rememeber seeing this film in summer 1989 in the movie theater when I was still in elementary school. On the big screen the FX are so cool! They don't translate as well on the small screen, though. It's also funny to see the Matt Frewer character making pot shots at Rick Moranis's character. The shrunken kids' adventure to cross the yard is also cool. The Roger Rabbit short "Tummy Trouble" before the start of the film is an added bonus! Great Disney fun!
