Differences from the film

  • Instead of saying Toby will 'become one of us,' as he does in the film, Jareth explicitly states that 'Toby will be turned into a goblin' if Sarah fails to reach him in time.
  • The storybook explains the solution to the riddle of The Four Guards.
  • A skeleton is shown in the Oubliette, indicating the fate of one of its previous occupants.
  • Instead of telling Hoggle that he will make him prince of the land of stench should Sarah kiss him, Jareth says he will plunge both of them into the Bog.
  • Instead of merely distracting Sarah, The Fire Gang offer to take her to Jareth's castle.
