If we take the ages of the actors as the ages of their Characters, Matt Frewer's character Big Russ Thompson would have been only 14 when little Russ was born and his wife would have only been 16 as Frewer was born in 1959, Thomas Wilson Brown was born in 1972, and Christine Sutherland was born in 1957.

When the kids encounter the stream of dog urine, Russ suggests that if they could get some rope they could make a log bridge, only to realise they don't have any logs either; later however, after the scorpion attack, they conveniently have both to erect a fence to keep out any further intruders.

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!
