YMMV / Scary Godmother

Go To

  • Alternate Character Interpretation: As Quinton Reviews suggests in his joint review of both films, Jimmy could be a Designated Villain. He's seen as a Shell-Shocked Veteran who has neglectful parents (who seemingly don't care that he threw everything out, and haven't showered in a year), and who suffers so much from PTSD that he goes so far as to destroy an entire pumpkin patch to the point of getting a limp from it.

  • Hilarious in Hindsight: With how everyone ships Orson and Hannah. Then Twilight, a story about a "romance" between a vampire boy and a human girl, came out. It is universally agreed that Orson and Hannah still make a better love story than Twilight.
  • Nightmare Fuel: In Revenge of Jimmy, the second time he attempts to cancel Halloween the Fright Side blinks out of existence. Scary Godmother is left stranded on her broom in a black void, with Skully, Harry, and Bug-A-Boo hanging on for dear life. Hannah manages to fix things, of course, but Fridge Horror comes into play when you think about what happened to everyone else in the Fright Side, including Count Max, Ruby, and Orson, when it ceased to exist.
  • Retroactive Recognition: A young Alexander Ludwig voiced the titular character in Revenge Of Jimmy.

  • Suspiciously Similar Song: The song Mr. Pettibones sings when scaring the older kids has the same melody as "Make 'Em Laugh".
  • Tear Jerker: Scary Godmother's Disney Death in Revenge of Jimmy. The house seemingly crushes her, leaving only her long socks. As Skully and Bugaboo cry for her, Harry is happy to be relieved of his duties. Thankfully, she survives, having just took her socks off (it presumably feels nice).
  • Toy Ship: Orson and Hannah seem to be flirting in a few scenes, confirmed in the book that Orson does have a crush on her. Also, Katie and Daryl.
  • Uncanny Valley: The animation has not aged well, with the character designs varying from a little unsettling to downright frightening. The models just seem so....off. Some of the most notable cases include the Black Bead Eyes on most of the human characters and the humanlike lips on Harry.
