* Tim Curry was turned down from playing Judge Doom because he was so scary in his audition that Zemeckis, Creator/StevenSpielberg and Kathleen Kennedy were all scared out of their minds of him, and considering [[Film/It1990 how he played Pennywise,]] it's better if he didn't.

* The [[TheSilentBob straitjacketed weasel Psycho]] is practically a NightmareFuelStationAttendant. Just listen to him coo, "Time to kill the raaaab-biiiiit..." He even turns the Dip on Jessica and Roger AFTER HE'S DEAD. His ghost was ''that'' invested in killing them.]]

** Made even more terrifying by the fact that [[spoiler:Doom]] was so [[TheStoic serious]] and sane compared to the rest of the cast for most of the film, until :his [[TheReveal reveal as a Toon]], suddenly smiling [[SlasherSmile and not the good kind]].

** The worst part is, normal toons always cause AmusingInjuries because they don't try to harm anyone and are in it for the laughs; Judge Doom, on the other hand, can and ''does'' harm people using ToonPhysics. It's a good thing Eddie dodged that buzzsaw when he did.
*** Remember also Roger's comments that toons can only use this power by RuleOfFunny. [[FridgeHorror Doom thinks all of this is hilarious.]]

*** You could only imagine what could've drove Doom (and the Weasels for that matter) to not only develop a deep-seeded hatred of, but also ''happily'' attempt genocide of '''their own race'''. Especially when Toons, supposedly, only want to be funny. The graphic novel sequel mentioned above explains that Doom was originally a Toon actor until an on-set accident knocked him out and he later awakened believing he was a true, bona-fide villain. However, the graphic novel is non-canon, so the real in-universe reason behind their evil nature is left a mystery.

* The scene in which Eddie brutally interrogates R.K. Maroon is pretty unsettling, as Maroon is clearly fearing for his life and knows full well what kind of monster they're both dealing with, and is resisting Eddie's advances to save his own hide. Eddie then begins strangling him by running his tie through the film recorder, but before Maroon can reveal what's to become of Toontown if the will doesn't show, he's brutally [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LZqr-7XqCyw gunned down by Doom.]] As much of a jerk as Maroon could be, his torture and murder can be pretty difficult to watch.

%%* * Doom draws Roger out of hiding by repeatedly rapping the first part of "Shave and a Haircut..." ZERO CONTEXTHaircut," as toons have an irrepressible instinct to finish it.
