- A rather kinky tale of survival
- The year is 2024... a future you'll probably live to see.
- Vic: We coulda used her three more times! Blood: Ah, war is hell.
Blood: A cautous young fellow named Lodge / Had seatbelts installed in his Dodge. / When his date was strapped in / He committed a sin / Without even leaving the garage. That's clever, isn't it?
Vic/Albert (to sentry): If my gun picks up one rust spot you're gonna wake up with a crowd around 'ya.
Lou: Lack of respect, wrong attitude, failure to obey authority.
Blood: Well, I'd certainly say she had marvelous judgment, Albert, if not particularly good taste.
- The screenplay was started by Harlan Ellison, who wrote the novella on which it is based. Ellison encountered writer's block, and so producer Alvy Moore and L.Q. Jones took over and wrote the script. Ellison praised the film after its premiere, to the relief of Moore, but there are rumors that Ellison later condemned the film.
Tim McIntire, who performed the voice of "Blood", sang the main title song, "A Boy and His Dog."
According to ‘Cult Movies 2’, a sequel was planned called "A Girl And His Dog" but Tiger died and the plan was scrapped.
James Cagney was considered for the voice of Blood, but the idea was dropped because Cagney's fame would have been a distraction from the character.
Near the end of the film, when Vic is speaking with Blood outside the entrance to The Down Under, Vic refers to him as "Tiger" which was the dog's actual name.
