* HeyItsThatVoice:
** Creator/KeithDavid as a black cat who seems incredibly {{Badass}} just because it's his voice. Admittedly, he was pretty badass in the book, too. Luckily, his fight with that one rat doesn't take [[Film/TheyLive five minutes of screen time]].
** Keith David voiced Spawn in Todd [=McFarlane=]'s ''WesternAnimation/{{Spawn}}'', which is based on the comic book of the same name that Neil Gaiman wrote an issue and filed a lawsuit over.
** Also, the two mothers are [[Series/LoisAndClark Lois Lane]] and [[Series/DesperateHousewives Susan Mayer]].
*** However, in the video game, she's KathSoucie.
** The Other Father is briefly voiced by John Linnell of Music/TheyMightBeGiants during his song for Coraline.
*** One wonders about the content of Mr. Jones' seed catalog. Is it full of [[CompleteWorldKnowledge made-up seeds, a list of 700 famous gardeners, and masturbation jokes]], by any chance?
*** At one point, the father mentions that he is [[IncrediblyLamePun getting a virus]]. Get it, because he's a PC?
** And Creator/DakotaFanning as the voice of Coraline.
** Mr. Bobinsky is [[WesternAnimation/KungFuPanda Tai Lung.]]

* NetworkToTheRescue: Initially, no studio showed interest in the film. Then producer Bill Mechanic (who also believed in Creator/JamesCameron and ''{{Titanic}}'' at Fox) showed interest and jumped on as a financier, which got the film made and a distributor in Universal. The movie became a SleeperHit, director Henry Selick got a deal at {{Pixar}} and the animation studio now works full-time with Universal.
