* GenerationXerox: It's implied, by the ending, that Tracy and Link will be the future version of Tracy's parents; Tracy as the big woman and Link as the skinny guy.

* WhoNamesTheirKidDude: ''Corny? Link?? Seaweed???''Seaweed???'' Corny, however, might be short for Cornelius, making it less bad.

NBC will be airing a live performance in December 2016, in its fourth annual live musical event. It contains some "firsts" for NBC musicals, such as their first to air on a Wednesday instead of a Thursday, their first performed with a live studio audience, and their first recorded partially outdoors. (Except for the timeslot, all of this follows the lead of Fox's ''Film/{{Grease}}'' production, which this special shares a live television director with). Marcie Baillio will play Tracy, while Broadway's original Edna, Harvey Fierstein, will reprise his role, and write the teleplay (a responsibility he previously assumed for NBC's ''Theatre/TheWiz'' telecast).

This was the first film Creator/JohnWaters made with a PG rating. It was released in 1988 and starred Ricki Lake as Tracy Turnblad, Divine as her mother, and John Waters's usual repertory cast.

The film eventually inspired a 2002 Broadway musical. The music was changed for this production. The original film was for the most part not a musical ''per se'', just full of music, and its songs were all DanceSensation songs of one sort or another. The musical had songs tell the story more directly. The storyline is similar to the original, but some details and some emphases were adjusted (for example, most references to Velma Von Tussle in the tropes below are from the Broadway musical or second film, as her role was greatly expanded from the original). It won eight Tony Awards, and introduced the world to Marissa Jaret Winokur (who previously was more known as the fast-food girl with Kevin Spacey in ''Film/AmericanBeauty''). NBC will be airing a live performance in December 2016, in its fourth annual live musical event.

The musical was successful enough that it itself was [[RecursiveAdaptation made into a film]] in 2007. It starred Nikki Blonsky as Tracy Turnblad and Creator/JohnTravolta as her mom, among an all-star ensemble cast.
