** [[WebVideo/TheNostalgiaChick Lindsey Ellis]] once described Jack rather unsympathetically (albeit jokingly) as "a cultural imperialist who uses his position of authority to impose his midlife crisis, willing or no, both onto his polity and of a sovereign foreign nation."

Basically, Jack is a ''cultural imperialist!''

* AuthorsSavingThrow: For a long time, there was some fan confusion about why Oogie Boogie seems to be alright with torturing and murdering innocent people when the denizens of Halloween Town are explicitly supposed to be an example of DarkIsNotEvil, only existing to ''scare'' people (while drawing the line at actually hurting them). The licensed video game sequel ''VideoGame/TheNightmareBeforeChristmasOogiesRevenge'' explains that Oogie ''isn't'' actually from Halloween Town, but is in fact the exiled representative of a forgotten holiday called "Bug Day"; humankind doesn't remember that "Bug Day" ever existed because it was banned by the other Holidays after they realized Oogie's monstrousness.

** On the first day of October, expect social media (''especially'' {{Tumblr}}) to be flooded with references to this movie. Quoting the opening song (often in full) is very popular.

** The Easter bunny. Near the middle of the film, he gets kidnapped, and gets the dickens scared out of him by one of the Halloween residents. The only vocalizations we hear from the bunny are a startled yelp and terrified whimpering.

** Dr. Finklestein, '''Literature/{{Bigtime}}'''. Did he create Sally to be [[MadScientistsBeautifulDaughter his daughter]]? His SexSlave? An emotional companion? A servant? All of the above? Who knows! And what of [[spoiler: the mother-like figure he's with at the end?]]

* CreepyAwesome: Oogie Boogie. Sure, he's the BigBad of the series. But dang it, does he stand out! His VillainSong is probably the most well-known of the songs in the film, and it's really are to not find him at least ''somewhat'' amusing. Add to that he's actually [[spoiler: a ColonyOrganism made of bugs wrapped in burlap]], and you have yourselves ''the'' Boogie Man!

* EvilIsCool: Oogie Boogie, yet again.

She also described "Jack's Lament" as him using the trauma he's inflicted to rationalize his personal growth, and that Sally is too good for someone like him.

* SugarWiki/AwesomeMusic: Every. Single. Note of Music/DannyElfman's score and songs! It's practically his movie as much as it is Tim Burton's.
** The perfect incorporation of "This Is Halloween" into this man's [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WAXMtUCcp7o downright amazing Halloween light show]].
** Elfman has recently taken part in a musical retrospective of his scores for Tim Burton, the finale of which is him singing nearly half the score for this film ''by himself''.
