** The undead pirate scene, which is lead by [[{{WesternAnimation/TheNightmareBeforeChristmas}} Jack Skellington]], has an expy of DonaldDuck among his crew. Six years later, ''[[VideoGame/KingdomHeartsI Kingdom Hearts]]'' was released, with Donald as one of the main characters and Halloween Town being a playable world, with Jack serving as it's GuestStarPartyMember. Likewise, the main party become undead there, though Donald is turned into a {{Mummy}} instead.
*** Even more hilarious in the French dub of the film; Sora and James share [[Creator/DonaldReignoux a voice actor]]!

** Depending on how you view it, the ''entire film'' could be this or NarmCharm due to the heavy-handed nature of some of the scenes and some of the music.



* TheWoobie: James. Poor, poor James. He had such GoodParents, until they died and his evil aunts took him in. You can guess how well THAT went for him.
** Worse, while watching his aunts publicize the giant peach, kids are present there. However, James is forbidden to leave the house, and he sheds a tear as the only possible friends he would make just come and go.

** Miss Spider can also come across as this in the book. It's hard to not feel bad for her when she confesses that she doesn't understand why people hate spiders, or when she bursts into tears in the middle of talking about her relatives that were killed in front of her. Her film counterpart, while more of a DeadpanSnarker, also has some shades of woobiness as well; she isolates herself because she's aware the other bugs fear and distrust her, and she admits that she doesn't know what it's like to have friends.

** In the movie, the aunts try to escape in their car when the peach rolls free instead of simply ''stepping out of the way''. Needless to say, they're lucky their stupidity didn't get them killed.

* CrossesTheLineTwice: James' parents abruptly gets eaten by a rhinoceros at the beginning of the story. While having your parents die at a young age is never pleasant, the situation is so absurd, part of you can't help but laugh a little.
