  1. I've heard that Jack's face appears during the scene where other mother is cooking. The food forms his head. I haven't seen the movie with this knowledge though to catch it.

    Also, Other fathers orange monkey slippers are based off Henry Selick's main puppet character from the film "MonkeyBone".
