** Also, how many viewers recognized the speech the other Spink and Forcible were reciting during their trapeze act? It's from ''Theatre{{Hamlet}}''. And it has especially interesting plot-correlations when you recall that when he originally spoke it in the play, Hamlet was being ''sarcastic''.

** Also, at one point the other mother cracks an egg yolk into a bowl that yields ''WesternAnimation/TheNightmareBeforeChristmas'' lead character Jack Skellington's image.



* ShyBlueHairedGirl: Averted. Coraline is [[LittleMissSnarker not shy]].



* TotallyRadical: Select pieces of Coraline's dialogue. It might come off as {{Narm}} to older viewers, since hardly any kid talks that way. The most {{egregious}} examples:
-->"Cripes almighty! How are my best trolls?!" (Upon seeing a moving picture of her friends)\\
"Ugh! Poo-ee!" (Upon sniffing a repugnant smell)

* UncannyValley: This can be expected where there are {{Creepy Doll}}s. But actual people with buttons as their eyes? Ouch. The fact that the film itself is made with real dolls makes the effect even greater.

Added DiffLines:

** An old witch entices children into her home with treats in order to eat them up herself, and eventually gets killed by one of her could-have-been victims, who's also female. [[Literature/HanselAndGretel Sounds familiar?]]

* AdultsAreUseless: Averted. Bobinsky, Spink and Forcible, and later, Coraline's mother, each give Coraline warnings against danger (it's only because she ignores them that the warnings amount to nothing), and [[spoiler:Spink and Forcible give Coraline an important piece of AppliedPhlebotinum that turns out to be a useful tool in finding the ghost children's eyes.]]
