* TearJerker: See SoundtrackDissonance; the music is incredibly moving.
** Also, [[spoiler:The Monster's speech after Frederick's personal sacrifice. Of course, there's MoodWhiplash afterward with Inspector Kemp.]]
** The DVD commentary. Brooks starts crying during the credits over all the friends he has since lost. [[HarsherInHindsight It's only gotten worse]] as in August 2016, Creator/GeneWilder passed away.
** Frederick's Soliloquy in the musical, where he proudly accepts his name as a Frankenstein [[spoiler:before the townsfolk hang him. He survives, but still!]]

* AwardSnub: Concerning the Oscars, the movie did receive nominations for Screenplay and Sound, but woefully ignored Creator/MartyFeldman, Cloris Leachman, and Madeline Kahn's hilarious performances. Not to mention nominations for Set Decoration or Costume. Leachman and Kahn at least got Golden Globe nominations, for Best Actress (Comedy/Musical) and Supporting Actress respectively. Plus, we'll never know if Kahn would have gotten an Oscar nod for Best Supporting Actress if she wasn't nominated in the same category for ''Film/BlazingSaddles'' that same year.

** Every punchline is a quotable wonder. The movie is up there with ''BlazingSaddles'' as one of Mel Brooks' most-quoted films.

* AwesomeMusic: John Morris's heartbreaking "Transylvanian Lullaby" score.



* VisualEffectsOfAwesome: The nusical did some impressive lighting effects, such as flying sparks during "Life, Life" and the rear-projected CGI forest during "Roll In The Hay."

Added DiffLines:

* HilariousInHindsight: As noted below, the Italian dub translated "It could work" as "We can do it." The musical adaptation of ''Film/TheProducers'' has a song with that title.

* WeirdAlEffect: It's a really faithful AffectionateParody of ''Film/{{Frankenstein 1931}}'' and ''Film/BrideOfFrankenstein'' - to the point watching ''Young Frankenstein'' before makes many scenes in the originals hard to take seriously.
