James and the Giant Peach

Corrected entry: Towards the beginning, when the peach starts to roll down the hill, the aunts get in the car to chase it. We see that aunt Spiker, who is starting the car in the driver's seat, is on the right side of the car. If this part of the movie takes place in England, why is the driver's seat on the right side of the car?

Correction: First off, the driver's seat, is on the right side of the car in England, unless you are talking about the right side, from the perspective of someone looking into the car, from the front. Even if that is the case, it is not illegal to have a car with a left hand drive in England, just as it is not illegal to have one with a right hand drive in the rest of Europe, or the US. As long as you drive the car on the correct side of the road.

Centipede: I wanna escape from Spiker and Sponge.
Earthworm: Escape? To where? We'll all be squashed and swotted and swooshed.
Grasshopper: No one's going to swoosh you my dear boy, you're six feet through now.
Earthworm: Bigger target.



Throughout the flight with the seagulls attached to the peach stem, the length of the peach stem gets shorter and then longer and then shorter again.



While Centipede is on the skeleton ship, he enters into a room where the Skeleton Captain is laying on a compass, and Centipede murmurs, "A Skelington?" This was probably a reference to a previous Tim Burton character, Jack Skelington in "The Nightmare Before Christmas". The fact that the Captain greatly resembles Jack supports this theory.
