** Most of HalloweenTown has four-fingers. The exceptions seem to be Sally and Big Witch, who both have five.

** Jack manages to get shot down by ''flak guns'' without being blown to pieces. This could be justified, however, by the coffin sleigh taking most of the blow. However, this does not explain how at least a ''mile-high fall onto a stone angel'' didn't break any of his bones (the impact from the fall ''did'' seem to be strong enough to knock off his jawbone, however). This all still could be justified by the fact that Jack's undead, so he would not feel pain, if it weren't for an earlier scene where [[StalkerWithACrush Sally]] accidentally pokes Jack's finger with a needle, and he yelps in pain. [[MindScrew It's a little confusing]]. Perhaps it's important that he was caught by an angel.

Starting in 2006, it's gotten a theatrical re-release once a year at Halloween time, with a somewhat disappointingly light-handed makeover into a 3-D movie. Compare ''WesternAnimation/{{Coraline}}'', which is from the same director. The difference likely has to do with the fact that Coraline was intended to be a 3-D film from the time it began filming,and it was specifically shot for that purpose during filming. The 3-D version of ''The Nightmare Before Christmas'' was retrofitted approximately thirteen years after its original release.

Added DiffLines:

* PoorCommunicationKills: Jack wants to understand Christmas, so he makes off with a large bag of stolen holiday goods and runs experiments on the holly berries and candy canes. If actually ''speaking'' to the denizens of Christmas Town was ever attempted, we never see it.

* BlueAndOrangeMorality: The people of HalloweenTown are macabre, disturbing, and scary, and enjoy things that are dangerous and unpleasant to regular people, but that's just because it's their nature. In their world, these things are all quite positive. This is the primary source of conflict in the movie, because although the Halloween creatures ''think'' they understand Christmas, it's impossible for them to do so. Not even Jack really gets it. Oogie Boogie, however, proves that not everyone is benevolent there. His quislings Lock, Shock and Barrel also are, to put it in the townspeople's lexicon, "mean".
