In one scene, Cry Baby's mother shoots at a Woodchuck. She misses. The Woodchuck jumps and runs away. This scene was filmed at two different times.

Another scene where two gangs are in their cars playing chicken, one cars swerves to miss and runs into a chicken coop. This was done in two takes using a shot of the coop with chickens, then another take with the car running into the coop. At this time the chickens were not anywhere near the coop. After the car runs into the coop, they place live chickens on and around the car and coop to appear that the car ran into the coop with chickens. There is a scene where Cry Baby escapes from jail.
