* ShoutOut: During the "I Put a Spell on You" number, Winnie calls out, "Hello, Salem, my name is Winifred! What's yours?" This is a nod to Mama Rose in ''{{Gypsy}}'', who said, "Hello, world, my name is Rose! What's yours?" (which was spoken by Louise earlier) Doubles as an ActorAllusion when Bette Midler played Mama Rose in the TV version on the same year that ''Hocus Pocus'' was released.

** You can hear Sarah sing at the beginning of the film as that's how she lures Emily Binx to the Sanderson sister's cottage and kicks off the plot.
