This show, along with 1966's ''It's A Bird! It's A Plane! It's Franchise/{{Superman}}!'', rather suggests that the only thing more toxic to a musical (in America, at least- the aforementioned ''Tanz'' is a phenomenon in Europe and Japan, and ''Theatre/DraculaEntreLamourEtLaMort'' did well in Canada) than [[VampireMusicals vampires]] is superheroes. (Er, break a leg, ''Theatre/SpiderManTurnOffTheDark''...)[[note]]It [[TroubledProduction did]].[[/note]]

* ShoutOut: "Wonderful Toys" is ''full'' of these, and to apparently whatever Jim Steinman [[strike:thought the Joker's manic, rambling personality would come up with]] wanted to include. The reference to ''TheRockyHorrorPictureShow'' is especially notable.

* CutSong: Per usual for a Steinman production, it's made mostly of these, though with the exception of "Angels Arise" it's more fragments of trunk songs than the full things. "Graveyard Shift" includes bits of "Edging Into Darkness" from Steinman's 1970s musical version of ''Literature/TheConfidenceMan'' and "Nowhere Fast" from ''Film/StreetsOfFire''.
** The guitar riff and chorus of Catwoman's song ("And I need all the love I can get/And I need all the love that I can't get to(o)") are reused from [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qDuW3NvjqJY "More"]] by Music/TheSistersOfMercy, Steinman having worked with as a RecordProducer on its parent album and being listed as a co-writer on the song.

* {{Cloudcuckoolander}}: The Joker. In his VillainSong, he goes off on bizarre tangents about things like [[PeterPan Captain Hook and the Lost Boys]] (a recurring bit of AuthorAppeal for Steinman) and randomly references everything from TheRockyHorrorPictureShow to {{Eminem}}.
