* NonSingingVoice: The Other Father is voiced by [[TheyMightBeGiants John Linnell]] for about 30 seconds in a [[EarWorm frustratingly catchy]] song. For the rest of the time, he's [[Literature/CompleteWorldKnowledge John Hodgman]].
* PermanentPlaceholder: The scene with Other Spink and Other Forcible was originally meant to have a song written by TheyMightBeGiants (as was a lot of the rest of the film, but that's another matter). After hearing the placeholder song the writers had come up with, John and John said it was good enough and there was no reason to replace it.

** The movie was originally planned as a musical with 10 songs written by TheyMightBeGiants, but this idea was discarded in favor of a more conventional movie, although one of their songs (the Other Father's number) does remain in the film, and the band has said they will release the other songs written for the movie on other projects ("Careful What You Pack", for example, wound up on their 2007 album ''The Else'').

* SleeperHit: When the film came out, stop-motion animation was considered dead and the film was expected to die a quick death at the box office against ''Film/ThePinkPanther2'' and the ''Film/MyBloodyValentine3D''. After a better than expected opening, the film kept on going and ended up becoming the second highest grossing stop-motion animated film domestically.

** The garden scene, the mice circus, the theatre, the Other Mother transforming and the other world disintegrating... they're not CGI. They're done with stop-motion. The mice are animated by replacement parts; every single movement needs an entirely new, sculpted mouse figure.

* NetworkToTheRescue: Initially, no studio showed interest in the film. Then producer Bill Mechanic (who also believed in Creator/JamesCameron and ''Film/{{Titanic|1997}}'' 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 Creator/{{Pixar}} and the animation studio now works full-time with Universal.
