* 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.

* 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'',

* 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.
