Trivia: This movie was originally going to be entitled "Honey, I Blew Up the Baby." However, the studio changed the title for fears of negative feedback.

Trivia: When Wayne enters Adam's room at the beginning of the movie, look at the upper-left hand corner of the screen and you can see the Kit-Cat Clock from Honey, I Shrunk the Kids (1989).

Trivia: In 1992, Paul Alter filed a lawsuit against Disney claiming that this movie was ripped off from his screenplay, "Now, That's a Baby!" about an enormous toddler creating havoc after being exposed to an enlarging ray. The jury ruled in Alter's favour and Disney was forced to pay out $300,000 as a result.

Trivia: This is Kerri Russell's (Mandy) first credited role while also being Robert Oliveri's (Nick) last credited role.


Trivia: Even though Paul Alter's lawsuit was settled in his favor, claiming the film had similarities to his 1980 story treatment he submitted to Disney, the film actually gives "special recognition" to Kit Reed for "The Attack of the Giant Baby."


Factual error: The baby is expanded to approximately fifty times his height, width and girth but it's explicitly stated that he retains his orginal mass. This means he will have the same volume as one hundred and twenty five thousand babies of his original size, but will weigh the same as before he was enlarged! That child is going to weigh much less than the volume of air he displaces. He's going to float away.
