* ShoutOut: After the Ghost of Christmas Present leaves, Scrooge is left alone and asks what he did to be so abandoned, a reference to a similar scene in the [[Film/AChristmasCarol1984 George C. Scott version]].

* AllJustADream: While the stage version doesn't explicitly do this, the back of the movie's box, the bonus features, and audio commentary state that Scrooge's visitations were a dream.

The sight near the end of [[AndYouWereThere the three Londoners who look suspiciously like the spirits]] dancing away together makes this [[OrWasItADream ambiguous]], though.

** The Past sequence rewrites Scrooge's childhood to more closely resemble Charles Dickens' own. Rather than being from a well-off family but neglected in boarding school, in this version he came from a poor family, his father was sent to debtor's prison, and he was forced into child labor in a shoe factory.

Rather than being from a well-off family but neglected in boarding school, in this version he came from a poor family, his father was sent to debtor's prison, and he was forced into child labor in a shoe factory. This version also gives us more of Young Scrooge's increasingly ruthless business dealings, showing him rejecting the Fezziwigs' application for a loan, and later shows the death of Jacob Marley as well.
