You may have seen the cult classic Caddyshack more times than Danny Noonan has practiced his putting, but you may still be unaware of everything that went into making this comedy film.

Luckily for you, we've scoured the internet looking for these tidbits hiding away in holes, and now we're sharing them with you. Instead of keeping you waiting, we're just going to gopher it.

Animal House 2.0?

While director Harold Ramis had immense success with Animal House, he still had some trouble getting his original ideas off the table and onto screens. However when he pushed for a script that was basically "Animal House on a golf course" he was given the a-okay.

"Don't sell yourself short"

Despite a career as a comedian and success with writing and directing, Ramis hadn't really ever sat in the directors chair, so to speak. In fact, on the first day of filming, he mistakenly looked into the wrong lens of the camera and yelled "Cut" instead of "Action!"

"He's a Cinderella Story"

Not many people know that Murray  had worked as a groundkeeper and caddy at a golf course when he was younger.

Even less people know that he was only on set for six days total, and improvised all of his lines, including his now famous "Cinderella speech!"

Explosion? What Explosion?

One of the stipulations that the owners of the country club had was that there was to be no explosion on the grounds. Since they really needed that shot for the movie, the producers took the owners out to a 'Thank You' lunch while they taped it.

The fireball was so big that a nearby pilot radioed in that he thought he saw a crash!

Perhaps the most interesting thing about this movie is how it evolved into something completely different while filming.

It's Been Over 20 Years Since 'Space Jam' Came Out, But What Ever Happened To The Monstars?

Since the Looney Tunes started, they have been able to bring together the entire world with their hilarious cartoons. Whether we were watching Bugs give a haircut, Wile E. Coyote chase the Roadrunner, or Sylvester go after Tweety, there were infinite possibilities and all were entertaining. But one story really beat out the rest as the most memorable, and that was Space Jam.

Watching movies was the ultimate treat on a weekend. Our parents would let us help them pick out the best movies possible at Blockbuster and we would watch it all together. But as we got older, we didn't want to just rent whatever cartoon had come out that week. We wanted to watch something new and exciting. We wanted our parents to think of us as young adults now.
