Trivia

A spin off on the license was aimed to be shot as a TV-series called "Snugglepuss and Maximilian: Undercover Cops". The script was written and sold to Gotlandskanalen AB. But since the company was put in bankruptcy about the same time, the project did never see the light of the day. In this sequel it would have been revealed that Donald Musente did not die in the shooting. And his role would be as an Hannibal Lecter-like expert of serial killers at a mental hospital. The main plot would be about Coop Formaggio running for Governor of Gotland, and Snugglepus and Maximilian trying to keep his election promise to keep the streets clean from criminals. It would also include nazicommunists and aliens as enemies, and every episode would end with the song "Wrong 'Em Boyo" by the Clash.

The book that Donald claims to be "Gunnar Barbarotti and the three wise men" is actually a spoof of Swedish author Håkan Nesser's detective with the same name. Although the books in the film are two different biographies, one about Rainer Werner Fassbinder and the other about Brian Jones.

Niklas B. Larsson had told Kim Ekberg when he auditioned for the role as "Maximilian" that he could play guitar very well. But when they made the scene were "Maximilian" is supposed to play the guitar, Niklas B. Larsson had to confess to the whole crew that he absolutely couldn't play anything on the guitar. So the guitar playing in the film is fake.

The film was filmed in only eight days, and edited and sound mixed in five. Kim Ekberg locked himself in the editing room and did all of the post production himself. Once a day Jonatan Lyrefelt provided him with food and CD's with the proposed music for the film score.
