** 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?]]

Added DiffLines:

* 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!


Added DiffLines:

* EvilIsCool: Oogie Boogie, yet again.

** 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."

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''.

* UglyCute: Pretty much everyone in HalloweenTown. The [[CreepyChild younger generation of the town's residents]], for example.

* OneSceneWonder: The Easter Bunny and Shrunken Head Kid both only appear for short scenes, but are among the most meorable characters.
* RonTheDeathEater: Yes, Dr. Finkelstein has a rather... [[AlternativeCharacterInterpretation questionable]] and dysfunctional relationship with Sally, but this does not excuse the FanFic writers for writing him into a freaking rapist.

characters. The latter was frequently used in the trailers.
* RonTheDeathEater: Yes, Dr. Finkelstein has does have a rather... [[AlternativeCharacterInterpretation questionable]] and dysfunctional relationship with Sally, but this does not excuse the FanFic writers for writing him into Sally. But if you went by only what fanfictions wrote of him, you'd think he was a freaking serial rapist.

** Take a look at the curtains in [[https://i.ytimg.com/vi/l6QZUcRJw-A/maxresdefault.jpg Town Hall]]. Now take a look at the logo for [[Franchise/KingdomHearts Kingdom]] [[http://vignette3.wikia.nocookie.net/kingdomhearts/images/2/24/Symbol_-_Heart4.png/revision/latest?cb=20100809124632 Hearts]]. And yet ironically, the interior of Town Hall isn't accessible in any of the KH games.
** A few of the [[https://i.ytimg.com/vi/ouAt_5UO83s/maxresdefault.jpg headstones]] in the Halloween Town cemetery resemble ghostly versions of the famous Creator/EdvardMunch painting, ''The Scream''. Three years after this film came out, another film gave us [[Franchise/{{Scream}} Ghostface]], who not only fits that same description as those headstones, but has also become the best-selling Halloween costume of all time, making his appearance in Halloween Town highly appropriate.
