We talked so much about the amazing 80s mood need to hear it to believe it for yourself.

Yep...turns out this was a real song...our bad.


Come along on the greatest adventure of the summer!

  1. The ship used in the movie used to be in a boneyard at the Disney Studios Theme Park at Walt Disney World in Florida, where it was an exhibit on the "Backlot Tour".

  2. One of the prop hulls was refurbished, and is now the topper of a drink station in Tomorrowland at Walt Disney World's Magic Kingdom.

  3. The loud belch made by the garpuntle who devours David's NASA hat is actually the dubbed-in sound of Joey Cramer belching, slowed down slightly to sound deeper and longer.

  4. The second film released under the Disney banner to contain profanity. It is also the first involvement of Paul Reubens acting for Disney. A month after this film's release, he continued to perform as Pee-wee Herman for the Saturday morning children's program Pee-wee's Playhouse (1986). This television series aired on CBS.

  5. In a 2019 documentary about the film, Veronica Cartwright recalled a chance encounter that she had with her co-star Matt Adler, who played the role of the older Jeff. On Halloween 2007, only seven months after moving into her present home, Cartwright answered her door to a trick-or-treater and was surprised to find Adler and his young son standing on her front doorstep. Cartwright said she and Adler had not seen one another since the time the movie was filmed, almost 22 years earlier.
