** In the novella after Marley's visit Scrooge looks out the window, and sees many ghosts in the street, burdened by chains, lockboxes and even a safe, all labouring under the weight and in misery, and recognises some of them as former business partners. For an adaptation that sticks mostly to the original story, this scene is cut.

* AnachronismStew: The film depicts Scrooge and his employees using quill pens, even though by 1843, they were practically extinct; steel pens had been the standard since the 1820s.

* WhatAnIdiot: [[invoked]] Invoked directly by Gonzo: Rizzo was panicking about climbing up a gate and then having to jump down from the top of the gate. After a crash landing on the ground, Rizzo...squeezes through the bars to get back to the other side to retrieve jellybeans, meaning he'd never really needed to climb the gate in the first place!

** Scrooge had coldly uttered this to Bunson and Beeker when they suggested a donation to the poor. This time he is saddened and horrified at his own words.
** This exact same exchange took place in the original novel as well.
