* The Easter bunny's reaction to being transported into Halloweentown; one of the residents accidentally startled him, and the poor bunny leaps back into the bag, whimpering in terror.

* Though morbidly humorous as well, it's very heartbreaking to see the children eagerly embrace their Christmas presents (and you get the impression they've been very good all year) only to have their long-awaited presents ''attack them.''
* The part following Jack being shot down, where we see all the kids crying as the police announce that they've yet to find the actual Santa Claus and Christmas will most likely be cancelled.
* Jack's song after he's been shot down and landed in the graveyard. Until now, he thought he was doing the right thing, but he wasn't. Not at all. And now he knows that he has essentially ruined Christmas and it saddens him greatly.
** The original poem has Jack breaking down in tears when he realizes what he's done.
* "Sally's Song" segment.



* All the denizens of Halloweentown's reactions when it appears Jack is dead. The Mayor sounds particularly broken up when announcing it over the loudspeaker, and the Wolf Man does a HowlOfSorrow while tears run down his cheeks.
* Jack's cry of: "Merry Christmas to all, and to all a good night!" is strangely tear-jerking to some.
* Jack's moment of despair when Sally uses the fog juice to try and stop him.

* Jack's cry of: "Merry Christmas to all, and to all a good night!" is strangely tear-jerking to some.
* Jack's moment of despair when Sally uses the fog juice to try and stop him. It's a small reminder of just how happy the prospect of having his own Christmas had made him.


Added DiffLines:

* "Sally's Song."
* While it's played for dark laughs, it's rather heartbreaking to imagine being one of those children, who've presumably been good all year, who eagerly embrace their long-awaited presents only to be ''attacked'' by them immediately after.
* Jack's cry of "Merry Christmas to all, and to all a good night!" as he plummets down to earth in flames from being shot from the sky.
* The denizens of Halloweentown weeping at the supposed death of their beloved leader. The Wolf Man gives a HowlOfSorrow while tears run down his cheeks, and the Mayor tearfully drives through town announcing Jack's death on his car's loudspeaker. And then just to make it even sadder, it's intercut with the policeman driving through town, announcing that Christmas is canceled this year.
* The first verse of "Poor Jack." Until now, he thought he was doing the right thing, but he wasn't. Not at all. And he cries at [[MyGodWhatHaveIDone the realization that he's ruined Christmas]].
-->''"What have I done?\\
What have I done?\\
How could I be so blind?\\
All is lost, where was I?\\
Spoiled all, spoiled all\\
Everything's gone all wrong\\"''
** The original poem has Jack breaking down in tears when he realizes what he's done.

* Jack's song after he's been shot down and landed in the graveyard. Until now, he thought he was doing the right thing, and now that he knows that he has essentially ruined Christmas, and it saddens him greatly.
** Even his argument with himself can be seen as this. He's confused and upset; he though what he was doing was right, but it wasn't. Not at all.

* Jack's song after he's been shot down and landed in the graveyard... until he decides to fix things and not mope around feeling sorry for himself, realizing that his holiday is Halloween, not Christmas, and that even though he failed he did his best and he's ready to give his all for the next Halloween.

* "Jack's Lament." One can really sympathize with Jack's boredom that's begun to turn into ''despair''.
