** He is at least aware of the film's cult audience, stating that "saying something negative about ''Newsies'' means there's an awful lot of people you have to answer to." It's something that would garner more just an embarrassed look than actual outrage (he even once briefly sang the "Santa Fe" refrain during an interview for ''The Dark Knight Rises''), but suffice it to say, he's sworn off musicals.

* ThrowItIn: Oscar Delancey's actor had no idea he was on camera for the scene where Blink's ranting about the price hike, he was just mocking Trey Parker. The director decided to keep it.

-->It was an acknowledgment that ''Newsies'' was a big fat flop, and isn’t that funny? It was not a particularly great song. It was “High Times, Hard Times,” the one that had Ann-Margret on the swing. [laughs] We did end up cutting the song [from the stage adaptation of ''Newsies''].

* GenreKiller: Of sorts. It was the studio's first live-action musical since ''Film/PetesDragon'', which itself killed the genre 15 years earlier. Unfortunately, this one did even worse, and the genre remained dead for ''another'' 15 years until ''Film/HighSchoolMusical''.

* OldShame: By his own account, Creator/ChristianBale (now [[Film/TheDarkKnightSaga Batman]]!) wasn't too happy with the decision to turn ''Newsies'' into a musical.

* {{Creator/Nickelodeon}}: Has two weird connections to this movie. Several actors would go on to appear in {{Creator/SNICK}}'s sketch comedy show ''{{Series/Roundhouse}}'', and ''WesternAnimation/RockosModernLife'' would parody this movie in one episode as "Garbage Strike: The Musical".

* HeyItsThatGuy: Jack Kelly is [[Film/TheDarkKnightSaga Batman]]. Joseph Pulitzer is [[Film/TheGodfather Tom Hagan]]. And the King of New York later becomes [[Film/IndependenceDay president]].
** You mean, ''Batman'' is ''Jack Kelly''. [[RetroactiveRecognition This movie predates Batman Begins by 13 years.]]
** Also, [[{{Music/Tommy}} Nora Walker (Tommy's mom)]] is a vaudeville actress.
** And Racetrack is [[Series/DoogieHowserMD Doogie Howser's]] best friend.
** Mush is one of the [[Film/TheMightyDucks Bash Brothers]].
** David is 13-year-old Creator/TomHanks.
** At least a few people who were around for the late 80s will probably remember the guy who spun on the fan having simulated sex with Music/PaulaAbdul onstage at [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8bLUSXBgNVw the MTV VMAs]]...
*** He was also one of the students in ''Film/StandAndDeliver''.
*** And one of the founding cast members of ''Series/{{Roundhouse}}'', along with three other alumni from this film (Ivan Dudynsky, David Sidoni, and Mark David).
** Snyder was not only Anthony Cooper, but . . . Paramedic Roy [=DeSoto=] as well!
** Averted, of a sorts, in one case. Kid Blink is not [[WesternAnimation/SouthPark Stan and Cartman]], but a widespread rumor says he is. In fact, it's just another actor named Trey Parker, who is roughly the same age and bears somewhat of a physical resemblance, aided by the floppy hair and eyepatch that obscure his face.

* BillingDisplacement: Played straight then subverted. Initially, Robert Duvall and Ann Margaret were given top billing on the posters and video release covers. Years later, after ChristianBale became a star as an adult, he received top billing on the UsefulNotes/{{Bluray}} release.
