Rosie O'Donnell has stated that the character of Roberta was supposed to be a lesbian, but the film was later re-edited and she was made straight. The line, 'Roberta lives in sin with her boyfriend." was looped in at the last minute.
In the scene where Chrissy punches Roberta in the face for pretending to drown, 'Christina Ricci' forgot to turn her head and ended up getting punched in the face full force. The production was shut down few days due to Christina being badly bruised.
Ashleigh Aston Moore who played Chrissy, passed away at age 26 due to bronchitis and pneumonia.
The little girl who plays Samantha's sister, Angela, is Demi Moore's real life daughter, Rumer Willis.
This is one of two movies released in 1995 in which Christina Ricci is the love interest of Devon Sawa. The other one is Casper (1995), in which he played Casper in human form.
When the adult Chrissy is scanning the front cover of "People" with Teeny on the cover, the smaller headline at the top reads, "Linda Richmond tells all in new autobiography!" with a picture of Mike Myers dressed as his famous Saturday Night Live (1975) character.
In the movie they are singing the Tony Orlando hit song Knock 3 Times while on their way to do research at the library. The song was actually not released until November 1970 and therefore would not have been possible to listen to in the summer of 1970, when the story takes place.
The original name of the movie was going to be "The Gaslight Addition".
The drive-in movie that Teeny is watching before she and Sam try out the treehouse is Love Story (1970).
Scenes in which the girls ran a carnival to raise money for their clubhouse were cut from the film.
The movie (aka "The Gaslight Addition") was actually written about a town in Indiana named Winchester, and its gaslight addition. The author of the story I. Marlene King grew up there, as did the director Robert Wise, in vastly different years. Winchester declined to have their name associated with the movie, so the name became Shelby, but later Winchester began to preserve areas mentioned in the movie.
Kirsten Dunst was offered the role of 'Chrissy' but refused to gain weight for the role. She stated, "It wasn't worth ruining my figure."
The Tarot cards used by Wiladene (Janeane Garofalo) are the Five of Swords, High Priestess, Death, Page of Swords, and Ten of Swords. The exact interpretation is unknown.

At one point, one of the girls sarcastically asks, "What are you, a pod person?" This is a reference to the sci-fi horror film Invasion of the Body Snatchers (1956), which would have been quite popular among twelve-year-old girls and other young people during the period portrayed in the film.

In the scene where the girls are climbing up to the attic window, they only needed 1 girl to get in that way. Then she could have walked downstairs and opened the front door.
