* ReferencedBy: The Music/{{Blink182}} song "I Miss You" has a couple lines about living "like Jack and Sally" and having "Halloween on Christmas." Mark Hoppus wrote the song for his then-fiance (now ex-wife), both of whom were huge fans of the film and eventually had a ''Nightmare''-themed wedding.

** Disney moving the film under its [[Creator/TouchstonePictures Touchstone label]] rather then releasing it under the "Walt Disney Pictures" label due to the dark content. Future re-releases, both home and theatrical, would bring it back under the Disney name, after the Disney brand began to expand their demographic starting with the PG-13 ''PiratesOfTheCaribbean'' series.
