Here is a list of the Ferris merchandise that I know of that either exists or once existed (not including the VHS, laserdisc or DVD format of the film), or I am hoping someone can get their hands on for me.

Also if there is something you have or know of which is Ferris Bueller related which is not listed please contact me, and tell me. Even if you don't want to sell it, I would like to know about it. So please anything bizarre or whatever, as long as it has the word Ferris on it, please tell me where and when you got it from.

Or alternatively if you would like to get your hands on a certain piece of Ferris merchandise, do the same or drop me a email, as I sometimes get leads on the merchandise and just might be able to help you out. For details on the soundtrack, please go to the Soundtrack page or consult the FAQ.

And if you go to Ebay (the internet's largest auction) please note, I strongly advise against dealing with a man named Jon Warren, user id jonwarren, he ripped me off over $100US and a Ferris Bueller poster. Don't let him do the same to you.

This was the official Paramount Pictures press kit for the film Ferris Bueller's Day Off. It includes a 32 page bound booklet with cast and crew and production information, and 16 8 x 10 black and white stills, some having multi-photos with I believe 22 photos in total.

If you want to see some of the photos from the press kit, Tony Hinde's Ferris Bueller page at features some clear scans of some of the photos.

The left poster is the 1986 US release original movie poster, most of these I know of are folded (though some original rolled ones do exist) and are 41" h x 27" w in dimensions. As can be seen from the picture reads at top, "LEISURE RULES" and pictures Matthew Broderick with his arms crossed behind his head. Reads under picture, "Matthew Broderick FERRIS BUELLER'S DAY OFF One Man's Struggle To Take It Easy" with credits at bottom.

The right poster is from Suncoast Motion Picture Company. (For those of you who don't know, SMPC is a division of the Musicland Group (Musicland, Sam Goody etc) They specialize in videos and movie based paraphenalia and are located in most shopping malls across America). They used to have one of their big 3X3 display boards of Ferris outside the Chez Quis restaraunt. As you can see from the picture it is of Ferris with his upper lift raised (ala Billy Idol). This picture was provided courtesy of John Silveria II whose brother managed one of their stores and when they swapped it out so he gave it to John. This poster was never for sale, but was just placed in Suncoast stores to decorate the place. They are really rare, as Suncoast makes them, and only enough for their stores.

There are also I believe rolled video posters given to video stores in 1987 to promote the video release. They measure 37" h x 23" w and I believe are identical to the original movie poster.


The left poster above is the Australian release of the movie poster it is slightly different to the US release as you can see and it's dimensions were 30" h x 13" w.

The above middle poster is most likely the British preview poster advertising the film's release on Friday February 13 in 1987. It's dimensions are approximate 60" h x 40" w.

The poster above on the right is a Danish version of the poster in the middle. I'm not sure if it is for the video or film release. Martin Soerensen from Denmark informed me that "En vild pjaekkedag" means something like "A wild day off" - if you translate it directly. The word "pjaekkedag" means that you take a day off from school - without permission. It measures 28" h x 24" w.

The above picture shows a section of a poster for promotion of the film in Japanese theatres. It measures 29" h x by 20 1/4" w and was originally rolled.

The poster above was given out at selected theaters showing FBDO. It measures 14" h x 24" w. However there are now commercial reprints of this poster at a handsome size of 36 in. x 22 in. and they only costs $8.99. If you are interested in purchasing one of these commercial reprints from for just $8.99 click here.

So everyone's always asking what is the name of the picture Cameron is staring at at the Art Institute. Well folks, if you haven't already discovered at the FAQ the answer to the question is "Sunday Afternoon on La Grande Jatte" and it's by Georges Seurat. Immediately the next question then becomes where can I get an art print of it. Well finally have provided the answer in a variety of different styles, sizes and prices.

This is the official Paramount promotional counter card for Ferris Bueller's Day Off. It measures approximately 11 3/4 x 11 3/4 inches and is printed on card stock. It is folded tent style to stand and is double sided. The artwork features Ferris reclining on the red Ferrari with a "Leisure Rules" license plate.

This button was given away at the sneak preview of Ferris Bueller's Day Off way back in 1986 and measures 1" in height.

A set of 2 stickers were given to theatres in the States as a promo made to promote the movie, each sticker is 2 x 2.5 (they are both identical) and they are attached by perforations. They feature a picture of Matthew Broderick his his hands behind his head and are very similar in style to the movie posters.

This is some heavy duty merchandise straight from the shooting set of the film, that no ordinary fan could ever expect to get their hands on. Rather the sweater vest that Ferris wears and the "NRVOUS" license plate can be found at Planet Hollywoods in New York City and Chicago.

If you browse through autograph stores and around the web, there are always some publicity photos from the film available. And sometimes they are autographed by Broderick or other cast members. For example, you can purchase the one on the left (unsigned) from for $4.99 by clicking here.

I am a trying to find a video that has the movie trailer to Ferris on it, so hopefully I can get an avi clip of this made and make it available for everyone. If you know of any videos that feature the preview to Ferris on it, please let me know so this video can be hired and the clip copied. Or better yet if you have a trailer in avi format, send it on over so I can post it up.

Whilst I am speaking of trailers you are still able to find some 35mm film trailers of the film, floating around amongst film hobbyists.

There is a color British lobby set for Ferris Bueller's Day Off. Each of the 8 11x14 cards has a different 8x10 color photo on the right side, the same info on the left, and the title and credits at the bottom.

If you are a fan of Ferris and the other eighties Teen films (which you should be since you are here), is the compilation album, "In Their Eyes: 90s Teen Bands vs 80s Teen Films". It has 90s Teen Bands covering some of the great songs from the Hughes and other eighties teen flicks. It includes a cover of Oh Yeah by Crazy Glue and also features such artists as Phantom Planet, Ben Lee, English League, The Rondelles and The Donnas among others. Or if you want the original recordings, another good album that has the a lot of the same songs by the original artists is VH1: The Big 80s - The Big Movies.

Not really Ferris related, but it's a cool sort of item if you're really really into this film, as it features Matthew Broderick in his 1995 role of J. Pierrepont Finch in the Broadway production of How To Succeed in Business Without Really Trying aka H2$. Broderick won a Tony for this one, and yes he does indeed sing on it, and he ain't too shabby at all.

Though these are actually in reference to the band Save Ferris, they still are rather cool. They now have a whole range of sweatshirts, t-shirts and tank tops so to check out the latest stuff to and even purchase them online go to

Once again this item refers to the band not to the film, however, in order to obtain some stickers, proceed to

Another band item, which is too cool to pass up, don't know where to get it from (actually I think it was sold at Save Ferris' concert), how large it actually is, or how much it costs, if you do feel free to tell me.

Once again this item refers to the band not to the film, however, I still think it's rather cool, and thought you'd like to see it. Don't know where to get it from, how large it actually is, or how much it costs tho, but ain't it purrty? :)
