Behind the scenes[edit | edit source]

The Mustang was involved more in early drafts of the script. In one cut scene, Bonzo the Great and Bertha were meant to steal and drive Troy's car away from a gas station as an ongoing gag of stealing and driving away in red cars (due to their training). Footage of the scene was filmed, but has never been released publicly outside of production images. It was meant to be crashed by the gorillas into a Cadillac owned by Troy's father on the final scene at Cauldron Point.

It is visible in the background in the Stop 'N Snack deleted scene.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Troy's license plate reads "H5R 397".
  • According to early drafts of the script, Troy's Mustang GT cost fifteen thousand dollars.
