* AwesomeMusic: "Whenever You Imagine" played as they enter the Fantasy section.
* FridgeLogic: What kind of library has a ''two book'' check-out limit, even for kids?
* GeniusBonus: In the Fantasy section, a large book falls on top of Richard, and he has to shrug it off. The book? ''Literature/AtlasShrugged''.
** Notably, it's one of the very few modern films to depict Mr. Hyde as ''shorter'' than Dr. Jekyll, as per the original novel.
** My name is... Mr HYYYYYYDE !!!
** I grin at thee, THOU GRINNING WHAAALE !!!
* NightmareFuel: The whole section of Horror is able to give you the willies, but the transformation of Dr. Jekyll (and his Mr. Hyde form) traumatized many, ''many'' children who saw this film.
** The scene where the ceiling paint is dripping down. Just looking at the giant wizard's face MELTING traumatized many kids.
** The ''Moby Dick'' sequence also was creepy: [[RedFilterOfDoom Dark red sky]], almost demonic-looking sailors and Captain Ahab maniacally yelling on the front of the rowboat.
*** Richard & Co. looking over the side of the boat, and seeing the whale rising up at them.
** The demonic paint dragon created from the molten ceiling.
*** The real one is just as scary
* NightmareRetardant: The ''original'' Hound of the Baskervilles was a glowing, eerie sight that could terrorize a man into running himself to death [[spoiler: due to luminous paint]], but it's just a normal dog (albeit big and snappy) in this film.
* TearJerker: A small one, but when Adventure and Richard think that Horror and Fantasy have drowned counts. Especially considering Richard's quiet line as he curls into himself.
-->'''Richard:''' ''"You three are the only friends I've ever had..."''
* UglyCute: Horror.
