YMMV: The Pagemaster
  • Awesome Music: "Whenever You Imagine" played as they enter the Fantasy section.
  • Cult Classic
  • 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.
  • Memetic Mutation:
    • My name is... Mr HYYYYYYDE !!!
    • I grin at thee, THOU GRINNING WHAAALE !!!
  • 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.
  • One-Scene Wonder: Captain Ahab's scene was a rather frightening one too.
  • Ugly Cute: Horror.
  • The Woobie: "Horror always a sad ending."
