- Actor Allusion: Stephen Furst (Flounder) transfers to the University of Kansas and survives a nuclear apocalypse. It's unknown whether or not his former pledges survived.
- Career Resurrection: For Elmer Bernstein, whose career was mostly spent scoring TV shows in the 1970's (a far cry from The Ten Commandments and The Magnificent Seven). His work on the film later made him a go-to composer for many popular comedies (such as Airplane!, Stripes and Ghostbusters) and he became John Landis's Associated Composer.
- In fact, Landis actually knew Bernstein when he was a kid, and had actually gone to school with his son, Peter.
- Hey, It's That Guy! : D-Day is played by veteran character actor Bruce McGill. Flounder is Stephen Furst, later a regular on St Elsewhere and Babylon 5. Tom Hulce (Pinto) would go on to an Academy Award nomination for the title role in Amadeus, and later voiced and sang the title role in The Hunchback of Notre Dame. Tim Matheson played Otter, and is pretty recognizable now as Vice President Hoynes and "Dead" Larry Sizemore. Also, Mark Metcalf, who played Niedermeyer, did his yelling schtick in the beginning of Twisted Sister's famous "I Wanna Rock" video, and later, albeit under heavy makeup played
Kool-Aid MouthThe Master. And the same actress who played Mrs. Wormer was also the Virgin Mary.
