More Movie Taglines:
  • Not all monsters are scary to people. Not if it's one fighting crime in the Garden State.
  • Criminals, beware of the Toxic Avenger. He will kick your butt HARD!!
  • He'll go from cleaning nerd to cleaning crime-fighter.
  • "Melvin was a 90lb. weakling until nuclear waste transformed him into..." [The Toxic Avenger]
  • The first Super-Hero... from New Jersey!
  • He was 98 lbs. of solid nerd until he became...
Movie Quote(s):
  • [Cigar Face is counting money, while Knuckles is counting out loud] Knuckles: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5. Cigar Face: When we lay this wad on O'Clancy, the boss is going to have him by the balls. Nipples: I don't think O'Clancy will take the money. Everyone says he's a honest cop. Knuckles: He don't take the dough, I'm going to give him a blow.
  • Cigar Face: Honest cops are all alike. A bunch of fucking faggots.
  • Cigar Face: I owe you for the other night monster faggot. So now we're going to give you six new assholes. Compliments of me Cigar Face.
  • The Toxic Avenger: You fat slob. Let's see if you've got any guts. [Toxie then punches the mayor in the stomach and rips out his guts] The Toxic Avenger: Officer O'Clancy, take care of this toxic waste.
  • Bruce: I heard that the monster is soooo big. Chauncey: Well I bet he's got his eye on ME! Bruce: For your information, everyone knows monsters prefer blondes.
Movie Trivia:
  • Jennifer Prichard and Robert Prichard fell in love on the set and got married.
  • Look for future Oscar-winner Marisa Tomei as an extra (coming out of a shower).
  • The violent-looking crushing of a child's head in the movie was accomplished by injecting a melon with corn syrup and red food dye. A wig was placed on the melon and it was fitted onto a dummy. Though cheap, the effect is highly unsettling.
  • The scene where the seeing eye dog gets shot received the most complaints by Troma up to that time.
  • Patrick Kilpatrick who played Leroy (the face-painted criminal at the Mexican restaurant) quit the film after having to point a shotgun at a baby.
