Trivia: In the theater and video version of the movie you see Junior get dropped off at the rich woman's house as a baby, he pees on her, and then she takes him to a new home. Because of TV censorship they could not show him peeing on her so on the TV version it looks like he gets dropped off and taken away for no reason.
