* {{Jerkass}}: Velma Von Tussle in the musical and even more so in it's film adaptation (where she's less LaughablyEvil), and Amber Von Tussle for a good while due to emulating her mother. The whole Von Tussle family takes this to ridiculously extreme levels in the original 1988 film. Tracy and (especially) Edna have their moments there too, in stark contrast to the kind people they are in the musical and 2007 film.

* HarsherInHindsight: Right after Tracy debuts on the Corny Collins show, her mother says she has to warn Tracy about "falling for crooners, like Creator/DebbieReynolds." Three weeks after the broadcast, both Debbie, and Creator/CarrieFisher (her daughter with EddieFisher), had passed away
