* FilkSong: Creator/LeonardNimoy's [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AGF5ROpjRAU "The Ballad of Bilbo Baggins"]].
* OffModel: Tolkien always had a specific design for Gollum in mind, and tried his best to write of that in the text. The way he looks in the Peter Jackson films (and most book printings from the 60s onward) is pretty much how everyone expects Gollum to look. However, in the earliest printings of the book, the illustrators hired had very different ideas for Gollum's appearance, so [[EarlyInstallmentWeirdness it can be strange to look through old printings]] and see Gollum [[https://s-media-cache-ak0.pinimg.com/736x/f8/30/fc/f830fcbc16fb7ba25c181971365ddb80.jpg looking like a strange yeti]] in one printing, while looking [[https://s-media-cache-ak0.pinimg.com/originals/08/8a/37/088a37bc9a0494a721c392b54a087d7d.gif eel-like in another.]]

* BreakthroughHit: The success of ''The Hobbit'' encouraged Creator/JRRTolkien to write a much larger novel about Middle-Earth, which turned out to be his MagnumOpus ''Literature/TheLordOfTheRings''.

* RecycledScript: In ''The History of the Hobbit'' it's pointed out that Thranduil the Elvenking and his hold in Mirkwood is closely derived from the original conception of Thingol of Doriath (Tinwelint of Aranor) -- which also [[FridgeBrilliance explains his distrust of dwarves]]. This isn't obvious to people who are only familiar with the published ''Silmarillion'', because the final version made Thingol and Doriath much richer and less earthy and sylvan. However, Tolkien added a DiscontinuityNod to this when ''TheSilmarillion'' does mention that Thranduil lived in Doriath in his youth and modelled his own kingdom in Mirkwood on it.
