Continuity mistake: After Herman breaks through the doors in the opening sequence, the underlying wood over the right side of the hole is plain plywood. When it's Lily's turn to come out, the wood has been stained to match the rest of the door, and Herman's outline is more distinct.
Trivia: Fred Gwynne (Herman) in real life was 6 feet 5 inches tall. In order to achieve the character, he was fitted with shoes that were at least four inches thick in the soles. The make up for his face and head added the rest to make him 7 feet 3 inches tall, and the air cooled suit added girth, and weighed 40 to 50 pounds.
