Continuity mistake: When the mayor gets into his car after he hears that Jack has been killed, his hat has to bend for it to fit under the roof. But a couple of scenes later, when Oogie Boogie hears the news, you see the mayor's hat; and it is short enough for it to fit without bending.

More quotes from The Nightmare Before Christmas

Trivia: In the song "This is Halloween," the two children sing "Tender Lumplings everywhere..." This is a reference to a poem from the film's songwriter/composer/Jack's singing voice, Danny Elfman's, former musical theatrical street troupe, The Mystic Knights of the Oingo Boingo (later to evolve as Oingo Boingo.) The original poem, Tender Lumplings, was "And so my tender lumplings, let my welcome hear you now/Into our flesh-pink home of hearts we greet you with a bow/So entertain we must we may, our pleasure from within/The Oingo Boingo treasure chest of lust and mortal sin."

Question: Sally tries to prevent Jack from taking over Christmas using Fog Juice. How will fog stop him?
