- Alan Arkin got the role of Clouseau after Peter Sellers declined to play the part a third time. Last Clouseau film until Sellers returned to the role in 1975.
- In the scene where Clouseau is being chased through the cemetery after falling in the plot and disrupting the funeral, you can see a sign on a cross in the lower right part of the screen for a few seconds. The sign reads "Reposite En Pace: Norman LEAR, 1903-1962". This is an in-joke that refers to "All in the Family" creator Norman Lear, who was Director Bud Yorkin's producing partner for many years on shows such as "All in the Family" and "Sanford and Son".
- This is the second of two "Pink Panther" movies that does not use the words "Pink Panther" in the film's title.
