YMMV: Charlotte's Web

All versions

  • It Was His Sled: Charlotte dies.
  • Magnum Opus: Charlotte's egg sac in-story, and arguably for E.B. White, the story itself.
  • Tear Jerker: Charlotte's death. Wilbur's reaction in the 1973 film sells it pretty well, too.
  • Values Dissonance: Apparently bringing a gun to school was acceptable in the fifties, as Avery is casually mentioned to do.

The 1973 film

The 2006 film

  • Awesome Music: Instead of the cheery vocal songs of the 1973 film, it instead features an excellent instrumental score by Danny Elfman that is in many ways just as moving.
  • Ugly Cute: Charlotte. Aside from having only two eyes and several "eyespots," she otherwise looks like a real spider. And yet, somehow, she comes off as beautiful.
