    Crazy Credits: We know about 1 Crazy Credits. One of them reads:
    At the start of the movie, Bugs Bunny interrupts and tells the audience to wish him a happy 50th birthday. A very brief animated celebration occurs before the movie starts up again.

    Continuity: A basket on the TV knocked off by Chucky's foot.

    Trivia: There are 7 entries in the trivia list – like these:

    • Chucky's full name, Charles Lee Ray, is derived from the names of notorious killers Charles Manson, Lee Harvey Oswald, and James Earl Ray.
    • The babysitter's death scene originally had her being electrocuted while taking a bath. The scene was used later in Bride of Chucky (1998).
    • Original writer Don Mancini stated in an interview that his original script toyed with the audience a bit longer, making them wonder if young Andy was the killer rather than Chucky. This idea was used by Kevin Tenney in Pinocchio's Revenge (1996).
