* PlayingAgainstType: Johnny Depp -- then best known for ''21 Jump Street'' -- as Edward, and the usually nerdy Anthony Michael Hall as Jim.
** [[HilariousInHindsight Which is kind of funny,]] since Depp's close involvement with Burton over recent years has made him famous for this type of role as well.
** Ditto for Winona Ryder too. Before this she had mostly played dark and moody teenagers in ''{{Film/Heathers}}'', ''Mermaids'' and ''Beetlejuice'' while Kim is more of a GirlNextDoor.

* TruthInTelevision: The subdivision wasn't a set built for the film. It's a real subdivision that was repainted shortly after construction and used in the film. (This Troper lives about 15 minutes away.) It was "restored" after the film and is a normal subdivision named Carpenter's Run in central Florida now, (sans castle, of course.) It's pretty typical of the sort of bland, repetitive, carbon-copy, subdivisions that sprung up in the housing boom in Florida from when the film was made until the early 2000s. Exactly why Tim Burton chose it to represent the kind of bland, repetitive, carbon-copy, Anytown, [=USA=] stereotype.
