Random Trivia For This Title:

  • Steve Carell describes Gru's accent as a cross between Ricardo Montalban and Bela Lugosi.
  • Mr. Perkins, the boss at the Bank of Evil, has two tufts of pointy hair, possibly modeled on the "Pointy-Haired Boss" of Dilbert fame.
  • Gru's date of birth is 09.28.1960 as shown in the state adoption file on the computer. This makes him of about 9 years when the moon landing event happened.
  • The producers only wanted comic improvisational actors in the cast, e.g. Steve Carell, Russell Brand, etc.
  • In his application to adopt the girls, Gru's first name is given as Felonious. In the Gru family tree, you can see Gru's mother's name is Marlina, and his father's name is Robert.
  • Gru tells Miss Hattie, in Spanish, that her face is "como un burro." This means "like a donkey."
  • The story of "Sleepy Kittens" was made into a tie-in board book that can be bought.
  • Will Arnett gained weight for the role of Mr Perkins because since he's playing a large, heavy-set man he thought it would improve his voicework.
  • The directors actually wrote a language for the gibberish the minions speak throughout the film. They called it "minion-ese". Each word the minions speak in the film translates into an actual word.
  • WILHELM SCREAM: When Gru's mother kicks the punching bag and the karate instructor goes flying.
