There were one hundred twenty "foodimals" made for the movie, but only thirty-nine made it to the final film. One of the foodimals that didn't make the movie was a fire-breathing Tyrannosaurus Rex S'more Monster with a marshmallow body, graham cracker mouth, and chocolate teeth. However, this "foodimal" appeared during the end credits sequence.
The animators also added an "Easter Egg" hidden fruit, which can be seen several times in the movie. It's name is Sasquash, and is shaped like a hairy gourd.
Terry Crews replaced Mr. T as the voice of Earl Devereaux from Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs (2009). Mr. T was asked to voice the character for the sequel, but declined. Many of Devereaux's body and facial expressions in the sequel were based on Crews' on-screen presence.
Berry is voiced by Director Cody Cameron.
The original title of Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs (2009) was "Revenge of the Leftovers".
