A radio controlled lawnmower, used in a scene, went out of control and struck a block of wood used as a camera support, shooting out wood splinters, which resulted in Armando Nannuzzi, the Director of Photography, losing an eye.

Stephen King had to cut part of the steam roller scene so that the movie wouldn't get an "X" rating.

A scene that had to be cut for the censors was a longer version of the scene where the boy got run over by the steamroller. Director/writer Stephen King had a blood bag placed near the head of the boy's dummy so it would create a printing press effect. During shooting, the bag burst the wrong way and made it look like the boy's head exploded. King loved the effect, but the studio made him cut the scene.

The large plastic head on the front of the "Happy Toys" truck is actually the head of the Green Goblin from Marvel comics Spiderman.
