* MundaneObjectAmazement: Sarah offers Hoggle some plastic beads as a bribe to help her, thinking he won't care much for them. Since human things like plastic don't exist in the Labyrinth, Hoggle is quite awed by them.

An [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Labyrinth:_The_Computer_Game adventure game]] based on this film was released by LucasArts, written by Creator/DouglasAdams. It had some meta humor, in that it began with the player taking on the role of someone going to see the ''movie'', with an annoying nerd yammering on about FridgeLogic in the film (such as ''why'' did Sarah eat the peach?) before [[TheFourthWallWillNotProtectYou Jareth appears to pull the player into the Labyrinth.]]

* AllMusicalsAreAdaptations: Averted -- it draws elements from folklore and fairy tales, but is not based on any one story (though the basic premise is similar to Maurice Sendak's ''Outside Over There'').

** Amongst the books in the panning shot of Sarah's room are ''Literature/WhereTheWildThingsAre'' and ''Outside Over There'' by Maurice Sendak; the latter picture book (1981) is particularly significant because it's about a girl rescuing her sibling from goblins, though it's a ''much'' simpler and different tale. According to Brian Froud in the ''Empire'' retrospective, "The link between his work and ours was only noticed well into production", as the concept of goblins stealing babies is well-established folklore and the original jumping-off point for the project -- but Sendak actually considered suing over the matter. That the Fireys were originally called "Wild Things" didn't help. (Henson changing that and acknowledging an artistic debt to Sendak in the end credits served to placate the author.)

The film is [[WhatDoYouMeanItsForKids mainly]] aimed at children, but has plenty to engage an adult audience -- not least of all David Bowie's [[MemeticMutation area]], a [[{{DrinkingGame/Labyrinth}} few fan-made drinking games]], and the many, many tropes available for hunting...
