More Movie Taglines:
- It came from outer space!
- Kent Mansley: The biggest thing in this town is probably the homecoming queen.
The Iron Giant: I am not a gun.
Marv Loach: What department is that again? Kent Mansley: Frankly, I'm not at liberty to divulge the particulars of the agency I work for, and all that that implies. Marv Loach: You mean, national security? Kent Mansley: Let me put it this way. Every so often things happen that can't be rationalized in a conventional way. People wanna know their government has a response. I am that response.
Dean McCoppin: Get back! I said get back! I mean it! The Iron Giant: No. Stop. Wait. Hogarth Hughes: It was an accident. He's our friend. Dean McCoppin: He's a piece of hardware, Hogarth. Why did you think the army was here? He's a weapon, a big... big gun that walks. The Iron Giant: I... I not gun. Dean McCoppin: Yeah? Then what's that? [Points at huge hole the Giant's ray left on a bus] Dean McCoppin: You almost did that to Hogarth! The Iron Giant: No! [Runs away] Hogarth Hughes: Wait! [Runs after the Giant] Dean McCoppin: Hogarth! Hogarth Hughes: Come back! Dean McCoppin: [sees the toy gun Hogarth left on the ground] It was being defensive. He reacted to the gun.
Narrator: A peaceful, uneventful day in a town much like your own. Then suddenly, without warning... [Explosion] Narrator: [echoing] Atomic holocaust!
- In the scene where Kent is using the Hughes' phone, the humorous oven mitt hanging on the wall beside him appears to be a stylized version of the "family dog" from Brad Bird's animated short of the same title which appeared on "Amazing Stories" (1985). (Season 2, Episode 16: Family Dog, 16 February 1987).
"Frank" and "Ollie", the two trainmen that Kent interviews after the derailment, are caricatures of Disney classic animators Frank Thomas and Ollie Johnston. They also perform the voices for the characters. Animation writer Earl Kress has said "that Frank and Ollie are also life-long train enthusiasts and have extensive scale model railroads in their backyards like Walt Disney used to have."
When Hogarth first shows the Giant his Superman comics, the theme music from the Max Fleischer Superman (1941) cartoons of the 1940's is heard in the background.
The comic book Hogarth shows the Giant with Superman on the cover is Action Comics #188, released January 1954.
Executive-produced by Pete Townshend of The Who. Pete Townshend also produced a concept album based on the same book as the film.
