* UnintentionallySympathetic: By 21st-century standards, the first four children's respective vices don't ''quite'' justify them [[ScareEmStraight being placed in highly traumatic situations]], even when they are self-inflicted. This is why most 21st-century adaptations give some of them, especially Violet and Mike [[AdaptationalVillainy significantly nastier personalities]].

*** The 2017 Tom and Jerry version, Violet keeps her Gum chewing as her primary vice... and the film decides to [[{{Squick}} show her chewing with her mouth open or playing with it]].

* DesignatedVillain: Mike and especially Violet have the potential to be seen this way due to ValuesDissonance; in the source material, they are considered "bad" primarily because they are addicted to television and chewing gum, respectively. Most 21st-century adaptations deliberately give both of them unlikable, even straight-up evil, personalities so that they do not end up UnintentionallySympathetic.

* DracoInLeatherPants: Violet and, to a lesser extent, Mike due to their EnsembleDarkhorse in this version. Even if they are both openly antagonistic, much more so than in the 1971 film or the book, their fans claim that they are just normal kids who never did anything wrong.

** Violet is a lot more sympathetic than in most adaptations, as it's made abundantly clear that her brattiness is the result of years of psychological abuse by her hideous StageMom, who is the true HateSink of her arc. This has likely contributed to Violet being one of the most popular characters of this adaptation. It also helps that's she's portrayed by Creator/AnnasophiaRobb, who's had a far more successful career than the other child actors.

* TheyChangedItNowItSucks: Those familiar with the London production, whether they enjoyed it or not, are near-unanimous that the many changes made to the show in the transition to New York City are mostly for the worse. Particular scorn is given to the removal of the SceneryPorn, having the four brats be portrayed by adults rather than children, the shockingly violent demise of Veruca Salt (even though it turns out to be a DisneyDeath), and the addition of an odd dream ballet between Mrs. Bucket and her ''dead'' husband to "If Your Father Were Here".
