* CreepyJazzMusic: The film has a moment when Elfman, as the Devil, kidnaps the hapless protagonist and orders him to kidnap a girl. All this is set to a key-changed and lyrically modified version of ''Minnie the Moocher'' called ''[[https://youtu.be/WACN2cdr4wc Squeezit the Moocher]]'' performed by The Mystic Knights of the Music/OingoBoingo as his imps. No, we didn't make that up.

to:

* CreepyJazzMusic: The film has a moment two major moments, both {{Shout Out}}s to the [=Co-=]TropeMakers Fleischer Brothers:
** The first is ''Behind Them Doors (Some of these Days)'', which is
when Elfman, as Papa is warning Frenchy and Flash about the Devil, kidnaps Sixth Dimension in their basement (for bonus points, he lip-syncs to Cab Calloway's ''Some of These Days'' midway through). A stop-motion transition also establishes how bonkers the hapless protagonist and orders him Sixth Dimension is.
** The second is later in the film when Hercules employs Squeezit's help. When he sets foot in the Sixth Dimension, Squeezit is captured almost immediately by [[Music/DannyElfman Satan]], who proceeds
to kidnap a girl. All this is set to sing a key-changed and lyrically modified version of ''Minnie Minnie the Moocher'' Moocher called ''[[https://youtu.be/WACN2cdr4wc ''[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WACN2cdr4wc Squeezit the Moocher]]'' performed by The Mystic Knights of the Music/OingoBoingo as his imps.

''Forbidden Zone'' is a [[MindScrew completely bonkers]] 1980 musical directed and written by Richard Elfman and Matthew Bright (who would later direct ''Film/{{Freeway}}'') as a vehicle for the antics of their band, The Mystic Knights Of The Music/OingoBoingo. At the time, the band was a stage art troupe that would later become a successful [[NewWaveMusic New Wave]] and {{Ska}} band, with Richard's little brother Music/DannyElfman as its frontman.
