  • Being an immediate sequel to the original, there's nothing much that needs connecting, although there are certain notable references:
    • Tom alludes to Patrick about Buddy being a basketball player, which he thinks is a joke.
    • The Framms came to Fernfield because of the napkin factory job Jackie got in the previous film.
    • Patrick likes pudding cups, which was what Josh used to first get close to Buddy with.


  • This is the first film not have Buddy, the dog actor, playing his character, as he passed away between films.
  • Rush and Chase, two of the dogs who play Buddy, were stand-ins for the real Buddy in the previous film.
  • Richard Martin, the director of this film, was second unit director of the previous film.
  • Having the principal in this film be called Ms. Salter indirectly references Ms. Pepper, the principal in the previous film.
  • Martin's father, Dick Martin, plays Phil Phil.
  • Before the animals break free, Popov watches Gus, a 1976 Disney film, with a fairly similar theme. It also stars Tim Conway and Don Knotts (although they don't share any scenes together).
