* Tim Jacobus, who painted the series' memorable and popular book covers, had not been involved with the franchise for at least ten years before being brought back to work on some of the films merchandise. The film's end credits sequence serves as a ''gorgeously'' animated tribute to his artwork, something he was apparently kept in the dark about until he saw the film for himself.

* Oddly enough, Slappy gets exactly ''one'' moment like this: he is ''genuinely'' happy to see Stine when he's released from his book (even if Stine [[OhCrap doesn't exactly return the sentiment]]), affectionately calls him "Papa," and is excited to see what trouble he's been summoned for this time, thinking that Stine let him out on purpose. And then the moment's gone [[Ohcrap when he catches Stine trying to discreetly pick up his book to trap him inside again]].

* ''[[JerkAss Slappy]]'' of all people gets a minor one in the HorrorLand book, ''The Streets of Panic Park''. It says enough when arguably the most selfish bastard in Stine's canon [[spoiler: keeps the kids focused on getting to the Whirlwind ride to escape Panic Park, and was even willing to let the kids go first]]. Prior to that, he also [[spoiler: insulted the Menace just to make the kids laugh and bring the Fear Meter down to ensure their survival]]. Granted, that latter one was partially him just [[JerkAss being himself]] and getting back at a double-crosser, but the fact that he's ''helping at all'' speaks volumes.

* In the book version of ''The Haunted Mask II'', Steve's initial idea was to use his mask to scare the kids on the soccer team that he's supposed to manage (as punishment for a prank) because they always misbehave. By the time Halloween comes around and the mask has bonded to Steve's face, he still plans on going through with his attempt to scare the kids. However, rather than being freaked out or acting hostile, the kids try to help Steve because they think he really is an old man. All Steve's attempts to scare them just lead to the kids trying to be as considerate and kind as they can be, and eventually, Steve asks for them to help him make it to Carly Beth's house.
