  • Ensemble Dark Horse: Bob the Janitor.
  • Fridge Horror: Invoked in nearly all the versions by the duck's fate, but the 2006 version is a special kind of horror if you know the wolf's backstory.

  • Uncanny Valley: There is one adaptation of Peter and the Wolf (the one narrated by Sting) where a number of characters in the first and third acts ("Peter and the Wolf" and "March in B Flat Major", respectively) are played by puppets. The animal puppets used for the bird, duck, wolf, etc. are odd-looking enough as it is, but the puppets used for the humans (such as Sting (as the narrator) and the conductor) are... downright terrifying. But then, these were made by the same company who made the puppets for Spitting Image, so it’s not suprising.
