* AlternateCharacterInterpretation: Not really on character but in most translations the villain is called a troll and that he hides in a box during the day. Some illustrations take this that he is a jack-in-the-box versus an actual troll hiding in a box. The Fantasia version clearly uses a jack-in-the-box as the villain although whether Andersen meant it either way is not entirely certain. Since living inanimate objects and magical creatures both appear often in his work.
* StoicWoobie: The Tin Soldier, of course.
