These are what we call the 'YMMV items.' Things that some people find in this work. We call them 'your mileage might vary' because not everyone sees these things in the same way. This starts discussions in the trope lists, a thing we don't want. Please use the discussion page if you'd like to discuss any of these items.
Hilariousin Hindsight: Adventure calling Captain Ahab "my kind of guy" becomes quite funny once you realize that Patrick Stewart, his voice actor, later played Ahab in a TV movie version of Moby-Dick three years later.
Likewise, Fantasy calling out to Mother Goose when the latter flies by also becomes humorous once you remember Whoopi Goldberg later voiced Mother Goose herself in the nursery rhyme-themed episode of Happily Ever After Fairy Talesfor Every Child.
Nightmare Retardant: The original Hound of the Baskervilles was a glowing, eerie sight that could terrorize a man into running himself to death due to luminous paint, but it's just a normal dog (albeit big and snappy) in this film.
