Who decides whether to put bloopers in end credits?

I sort of feel like any comedy should pepper the end credits with bloopers, gags, or outtakes. I love them. Is there an industry view on the practice? Does it vary by director or production company?

I assume that any feature-length film would have accumulated a decent number of unintentional bloopers on tape, if not staged gags. Any evidence to confirm or rebut that assumption?

  • I'd also like to comment that the scripted and animated "bloopers" at the end of Monsters, Inc. were just awful. They completely sidestepped what makes bloopers great: mistakes and honest reactions. [steps down from soap box] – BrettFromLA Oct 17 '16 at 20:06

  • @BrettFromLA - OTOH, I think it was Toy Story that elevated "bloopers" to an art form. I just asked here to see when that started in animated shows. – feetwet Oct 29 '16 at 23:40
