The movie has a repeated rabbit motif running through it, including Tuck's apartment. See how many you can spot!

Another of the rabbit themes is the scene where Martin Short's nightmare of his register going overboard comes true, causing him to panic, Chuck Jones can be seen standing in line. He says, "at that price, who'd want to?"

Tuck and Lydia are shown getting married at a beautiful glass church in the hills (see locations section). Of course, Dennis Quaid and Meg Ryan were married in real life, too!
Thanks to Scott Hume
If the movie were scientifically possible, then Putter would have been extremely uncomfortable having Tuck inside his body. A miniature Tuck would fit but would have the same mass (same number of molecules) as a full-sized Tuck. Therefore, since Earth's gravity remains constant, Tuck would weigh the same as before.

The game show that Martin Short watches is "Scrabble," hosted by Chuck Woolery. It aired on NBC from 1984 to 1990.

Actor Robert Picardo who portrayed the 'Cowboy' is best known for his role as the holographic doctor in Star Trek Voyager. He also played one of the freaky alien siblings in the other Joe Dante film, "Explorers".

Not an official fact, but in the UK, Innerspace on VHS is a movie that seems guaranteed to be found in any/every used, second-hand or charity shop etc. Not just one, but multiple copies. I think it was issued to every household for free circa 1989!
Look for an uncredited Joe Dante as an Vectorscope employee.
Scriptwriter Jefferey Boam has a cameo as Lydia's interviewee.
