Little Monsters (1989) Poster

Trivia

Inspiration for Pixars Monsters Inc.
This wasn't the first movie Howie Mandel says the words "bright lights!". He voiced Gizmo in Gremlins who also said that.
Daniel Stern, who plays Glen Stevenson (the father of Fred Savage's Brian Stevenson), was the man responsible for the voice-over narration on The Wonder Years (1988), in which Savage starred.
In the scene where Daniel Stern is asking Fred Savage to get the monster's autograph, the tickling was improvised and Savage's reactions are genuine.
The film was originally set to be distributed by Vestron and a trailer was even created by Vestron that was advertised on some of their VHS releases, but due to Vestron's financial difficulties at the time, the film was sold to United Artists, although Vestron did retain some foreign rights to the film.
Because of a fire that destroyed costumes and props for the film, filming was pushed back two weeks.
This is the first role for Fred's younger brother, Ben Savage.
Ben Savage also played a monster in the "Monster Ball" just before the pumpkin head comes to the plate.
Daniel Stern starred with Devin Ratray in Home Alone and Home Alone 2
