Howard the Duck Behind The Scenes
AKA: Howard, a new breed of hero
The infamous scene of inter-species love!
Howard's voice was provided by Chip Zien.
Tori Amos originally auditioned for the part of Beverly Switzler. You have to ask yourself what the movie would have been like if she had played Beverly.

Although she's no Tori Amos in the singing department, Lea Thompson
held her own doing her own singing as Beverly for the "Cherry Bomb" performances in the film. She was insecure at first, but when she saw that Thomas Dolby was more insecure than she was, she went for it!

Director/co-scriptwriter Willard Huyck and producer/co-scripwriter Gloria Katz were planning to make a sequel -- until they saw the box office takings for "Howard the Duck."
When movies are made, scenes are often
left on the cutting room floor.
Sometimes, there will be several versions
of a movie floating about on cable, tv or video etc. Other times, a Director may
release a special cut of the movie.
In the UK, on initial release, two cuts were made. One is of Lea Thompson pulling a condom out of Howard's wallet, the other is of the bad guy sticking his tongue in a car cigarette lighter socket to recharge himself. Versions shown on TV have since included these scenes.
The USA TV version adds extra bubbles to hide the breasts of a female duck in a bathtub.
