Trivia The uplifting end of the world video scene was included by the filmmakers when they found out that one of the news networks actually had such a video prepared to run in case of the end of the world. CNN has a video for this purpose in its archive, and its staff are instructed to "hold the video for release until the end of the world is confirmed." See more »
Goofs When Daniel Clamp makes an appearance in Billy Peltzer's office block, he walks off to the right to some kind of desk and a black man extends his hand to offer to shake it and when it cuts to a shot of Clamp reaching the desk, not only is he in a different position but the black man has vanished and is replaced by a white woman.

Crazy Credits At the beginning of the film, Bugs Bunny appears on top of the Warner Bros. logo as if he was in a Looney Tunes cartoon. Also, at the very end of the film, after the credits, Porky Pig says "That's all Folks!" as in a cartoon. In both cases, Daffy Duck attempts to steal their thunder, only for the animating staff to torment him into not sticking his beak in anymore. See more »
Quotes Grandpa Fred: [interviewing Brain Gremlin] Creature what is it that you want?
Brain Gremlin: Fred, what we want is, I think, what everyone wants, and what you and your viewers have: civilization.
Grandpa Fred: Yes, but what sort of civilization are you speaking of?
Brain Gremlin: The niceties, Fred. The fine points: diplomacy, compassion, standards, manners, tradition... that's what we're reaching toward. Oh, we may stumble along the way, but civilization, yes. The Geneva Convention, chamber music, Susan Sontag. Everything your society has worked so hard to accomplish over the centuries, that's what we aspire to; we want to be civilized.
[a Gremlin with a beanie cap acts goofy next to Brain]
Brain Gremlin: You take a look at this fellow here.
[Brain shoots the Gremlin in the head. The Gremlins in the bar laugh. Grandpa Fred and Kujitsu leave]
Brain Gremlin: Now, was that civilized? No, clearly not. Fun, but in no sense civilized. Now, bear in mind, none of us has been in New York before. There are the Broadway shows - we'll have to find out how to get tickets. There's also a lot of street crime, but I believe we can watch that for free. We want the essentials. Dinettes. Complete bedroom groups. Convenient credit, even though we've been turned down in the past.
