When Brian is first in the monster's world, he runs into a creature named Gomer who has long legs. In the original theatrical cut, and the DVD released by MGM in 2004, Gomer says, "Trick or treat, smell my feet." For some reason, on the Blu-ray released by Lionsgate (as part of their Vestron Video series), and in the television airings, his line is changed "Anyone friend of Maurice is a friend of mine."

I used to kill myself laughing at this film when I was young. Fred Savage seemed to get all the good roles in these kind of films in the late 80's and this one is great gross fun.
The film is just a smashing manic ride, racing along like a miniature Beetlejuce and has all the mischievous, sticky horrible nonsense that's usually found in the mind of kids! Ignore all the rubbish about sexual and paedophile undertones, It's simply folk reading WAY too much into things that could mean anything. Maybe some folk have some secrets of their own if they keep noticing things like that Hmmmm? I'm pretty sure the filmmakers didn't set out to do something like that deliberately! Great film! Thoroughly enjoyed it when I was 12, and still enjoy it now that I'm 30! Check out The Wizard as well! Another great (And misunderstood) Fred Savage Film
