During the original theatrical run, an unfinished episode of Spongebob Squarepants would play before the films start, it was the episode Shanghaied and ended at a scene that would be determined almost a year later by fan votes, this version of the episode is somewhat infamous as being the original version which contained very frightening images; one scene showing the character Squidward falling through a skeleton themed background was so scary, that when it finally aired on television it was reanimated to be spaghetti instead.
The film was originally intended to be more of a musical, similar to The Rugrats Movie (1998). The Rugrats were set to sing "L' Chuckie Chan" and "Ooie Gooie World Theme" while Chuckie performed "I Want a Mom That Will Last Forever," though a much sillier version. While these songs remain in the film, they are performed by other artists, respectfully. Only two songs ("Bad Girls" and "Packin' to So") are still sung by the characters in the movie.
Paramount Pictures and Nickelodeon Movies first sequel to one of their films in this case The Rugrats Movie (1998) and it is the only sequel until Rugrats Go Wild (2003) which releases three years later; this made Rugrats the only Nicktoon to have more then one movie adaption until SpongeBob SquarePants with The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge Out Of Water (2015) which released 12 years since Rugrats Go Wild (2003) and 15 years since Rugrats in Paris: The Movie.
The song sang during Chuckie's dream sequence is "Chuckie Chan". In the dream, he imagines himself as a martial arts expert similar to Jackie Chan. Chuckie's real name is Charles, same as Jackie Chan's father, Charles Chan.
