Before Ringwald, the janitor was supposed to represent John Bender. He had the costume and the fur hat, but after shooting for a few days, Hughes decided to cast John Kapelos instead.

It was initially going to be called 'The Lunch Bunch’ but a friend of John from another school had a detention class called 'The Breakfast Club,' so he decided to go with that.
