** Also don't forget Mr. Centipede in James and the Giant Peach the 1996 Tim Burton film, is hated and abused by all the other bugs all the time, including by Mr. Grasshopper. By the middle end of the movie, he is betrayed by the other bugs because they counted on him to lead the way to New York but failed because he fell asleep and lost sense of direction. He fits a woobie to a T. Even the crush he loves, Ms. Spider doesn't even notice his strong feelings for her until the end when he became a hero.

** Also don't forget Mr. Centipede Centipede, at least in James the movie, could be seen as a JerkAssWoobie if you read his boisterous attitude as mostly bravado; it's hard not to feel for him after he accidentally steers the ship off-course and the Giant Peach the 1996 Tim Burton film, is hated and abused by all the other bugs all the time, including by Mr. Grasshopper. By the middle end of the movie, he is betrayed by the other bugs because they counted on him to lead the way to New York but failed because he fell asleep and lost sense of direction.

Added DiffLines:

* {{Narm}}: James has a ''very'' thick accent that causes him to replace some of his "r"s with "w" sounds. For American viewers, this can make him sound like a very young child and give his lines a certain level of Narm.

** Miss Spider can also come across as this in the book. It's hard not to feel bad for her when she confesses that she doesn't understand why people hate spiders, or when she starts crying while talking about how her relatives were killed in front of her.

** Though they might've crossed it earlier, when they kicked a family out from their peach display because of [[DisproportionateRetribution the young girl wanting to touch it]]. [[FridgeHorror Chances are, other families might've suffered from such cruelty as well]].

* HarsherInHindsight: James' aunts trying to kill him after he is finally free really becomes cringe-worthy when you realize that, [[VideoGame/KingdomHeartsBirthBySleep fourteen years later]], another Disney hero, Disney/{{Cinderella}}, would almost be killed by her stepfamily for [[IfICantHaveYou the same reason]]. Spiker and Sponge must have really influenced Lady Tremaine.

* HilariousInHindsight: 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.
