* ShownTheirWork: In keeping with the book, Mr. Hyde is not only smaller than Jekyll, he's ''leaner'' than him too.

* GratuitousLaboratoryFlasks: A mural depicts Dr. Jekyll (from the [[Literature/TheStrangeCaseOfDrJekyllAndMrHyde book]]) surrounded by this sort of bric-à-brac. When the characters actually visit Jekyll's mansion, although his "laboratory" is limited to just one table in what appears to be his living room, it's filled to overflowing with all manner of cartoonish-looking lab glassware, none of which Jekyll actually uses (mixing his infamous potion in a martini glass of all things).

Richard Tyler (Macaulay Culkin) is a young boy who is -- to his parentsí annoyance -- timid to the point of neurosis. He is tremendously afraid of heights and generally obsessed with quoting the statistical risks involved in countless everyday actions, which, of course, explains why he isn't the most popular guy. One day his father runs out of nails while building him a tree house and sends a very reluctant Richard to buy more.

On his way to the hardware store, a storm suddenly breaks out, and Richard seeks shelter in a huge and luxurious but rather sinister library. The only person there is its extremely enthusiastic and slightly creepy librarian, played by Christopher Lloyd, who is disappointed that Richard merely sought shelter from the storm and isn't looking for books, but affably points him towards the public telephone so he can contact his parents. While wandering deeper into the library in search of the phone, Richard enters a magnificent rotunda painted with gigantic scenes from classic novels which surround the image of a blue-robed wizard holding a scroll.

The paint descends on Richard, transforming him and the library into an animated world of illustrations where the mystical wizard, the eponymous Pagemaster (also voiced by Lloyd), tells him that in order to get home, the boy must face three challenges: The lands of Horror, Adventure and Fantasy. He is assisted by three books which personify those genres (colourfully voiced by Creator/FrankWelker, Creator/PatrickStewart and Creator/WhoopiGoldberg respectively). Along the way we see references to many classic books such as ''Literature/TreasureIsland'' and ''Literature/TheStrangeCaseOfDrJekyllAndMrHyde'', along with a goodly heaping of puns, while Richard learns to confront his fears and to lead a life of bravery.
