Garth wears a T-shirt that says "Video Toaster", a CGI special effects system that Dana Carvey's brother Brad Carvey designed. Brad was the person on whom Dana based his "Garth" character. See more »
When Wayne pulls in at the gas station, across the way can be seen a building with the lettering "Bonita High School, Home of the Bearcats". Bonita High School is in LaVerne in California, a long way from Illinois where the film is set. See more »
How can you sleep like that?
Listen, sonny Jim. Sleeping like this will add ten years to your life. I learned it from Keith Richards when I toured with the Stones. This may be the reason why Keith cannot be killed by conventional weapons.

Wayne's World marked the end of the '80s -- Wayne's World 2, the beginning of the '90s
I first saw Wayne's World in the theater when I was around 15 or so. It's impact on kids during that time rivaled things like the NES, Beavis & Butthead & Nike Air Jordan's. I think many people, several years older or younger than myself could see both movies back to back and love them equally. Everyone sees things differently for their own perspective.
For about a year after the release of Wayne's World, I'd heard practically every single line from that movie repeated in conversation, multiple times at one point or another. The references to that movie were used so frequently, it was almost becoming a new language spoken by everyone under 20.
Then, it became much like a really eccentric person you befriend who quickly goes from being interesting -- to just plain annoying...
By the time Wayne's World 2 was released, the quirky, spontaneous, "feel good" personality that everyone loved about the first one, was basically absent and the gimmick was totally worn out.
It's extremely hard to put into words, but the first one just had a fun, hilarious, intimate feel about it that people could relate to. By Wayne's World 2; Wayne, Garth, and even Wayne's girlfriend had all gone in different directions and it lost the fun, friendly, "party" feel to it. The spontaneous nature of the jokes were gone and everything felt scripted. It was no longer "fun" to watch, but rather -- tedious.
In my opinion, the pop culture icon known as Wayne's World, marked the end of the fun, good times, partying and close friendships of the '80s. Wayne's World 2 marked the beginning of the stale, rehashed, lazy & alienated '90s. As most people realize, the generation/era that was the '80s (and everything that made it iconic) didn't end on Dec, 31 1989. Just as every other generation, it carried on for a few more years into the beginning of the next decade.
I've never found a better example to demonstrate the end of one generation and the beginning of another as I have by watching Wayne's World & Wayne's World 2.
At least from my perspective...
