Most of the voice samples come from "Back to the Future - Part II" movie which was released one year before the pinball game.
Michael J. Fox did not allow his likeness to appear on the game - the "Marty McFly" appearing on the pinball is Paul Faris's son.
Bob Gale (author of the Back to the Future movie trilogy) and Joe Kaminkow teamed up again to create the Data East video game "Tattoo Assassins".
