* TheWoobie: All those who feel sorry for Henry Selick because he ''never'' gets any credit for this film, raise your hand. While he was a director-for-hire for Burton because he was away filming Batman Returns, he is still responsible for putting it all together. Luckily this seems to have changed a bit after his adaptation of ''WesternAnimation/{{Coraline}}'' was advertised as being from the director of ''Nightmare'', causing some controversy over whether the studio was trying to falsely imply that Burton was involved and bringing a lot of attention to Selick. [[note]]This has had the unfortunate side effect of some people trying to downplay Burton's involvement and claim that it was all Selick, which isn't true. Burton wrote the poem the film was based on, was the one that decided to make it a musical, was heavily involved in the pre-production (contributing concept art, story boards, and co-writing the songs with Danny Elfman- though he declined a lyric credit), and handpicked Selick to direct the film. While it's good that Selick is getting more credit for his involvement, downplaying Burton's involvement ignores how significant Burton was in getting the film made. [[/note]] For the record, [[WordOfGod Selick himself]] acknowledges that the film was Burton's idea and that his job was to bring Burton's vision to life.

** Lock, Shock and Barrel have quite the popular fanbase, despite them being three homicidal, malicious, violent children. Although they do a HeelFaceTurn later...

Added DiffLines:

** The bats flying towards the camera during the "This Is Halloween" sequence are clearly held up by wires. In the remastered version, most of the wires were digitally erased, but they are still slightly visible in a few frames.

* HeartwarmingInHindsight: Jack rescuing Sally from Oogie Boogie and reciprocating her feelings towards him in the ending becomes even sweeter than it already is when the video game {{Prequel}} ''VideoGame/TheNightmareBeforeChristmasThePumpkinKing'' establishes that Jack also rescued Sally from Oogie when they first met.

Added DiffLines:

*** Given Jack is placed opposite figures such as Santa Claus and the Easter Bunny - who are the chief representatives and figureheads of their holidays - it could be easy to assume Jack has been doing that job since the concept of Halloween ''existed'' in a modern context.
