* DarkerAndEdgier: The movie follows very closely the book, and can be seen as very dark for a Muppet movie. The emotion is often put before the laughter, Gonzo and Rizzo provide more than half of the comic relief, and the part with the ghost of Christmas Yet To Come is both scary and sad. The Marley scene is one of the biggest NightmareFuel scenes in the franchise, even though they are portrayed by JustForFun/StatlerAndWaldorf.

* AdaptationExpansion: In the original story, and in most other adaptations, Scrooge grumbles about giving Cratchit a paid day off for Christmas, but relents. In this version Cratchit actually raises a valid point in defense of taking the day off: All their potential clients would be closed for the day as well, so being open on Christmas would just mean sitting around wasting coal.

* CanonForeigner: The character of Jacob Marley is given a brother named Robert, strictly for the purposes of being able to put StatlerAndWaldorf in the roles (as well as a StealthPun). It works.

* StealthPun: They split the role of Jacob Marley in two so both StatlerAndWaldorf could play it. So now we have Robert Marley (think about it, mon).

Come to think of it, every trope on the ''Literature/AChristmasCarol'' page fits as well.
