* A note to a single moment in the Christmas that might have been: There's ''nothing'' funny in this whole part of the movie... except, as the Ghost directs Scrooge through the graveyard -- it's both more tasteful and funnier than it might sound -- there's a very brief moment where he tries to go to a ''different'' headstone and looks back for affirmation, but it's obvious from the look on his face that, no, he ''knows'' exactly where they're headed, that was never going to work, and he returns to the indicated course...
* Christmas Present has just explained that he has over 1800 brothers. Scrooge smiles and quips "Imagine the grocery bills!" Christmas Present laughs along. It even crosses into Heartwarming territory.
** This is another joke out of Dickens - “'A tremendous family to provide for!' muttered Scrooge."
** While a good joke in and of itself, it's also humorous in that the expense of such a family is the only logical place the finance-obsessed Scrooge would take it.
*** It could also be seen as foreshadowing for when the Spirit takes him to the Cratchit household and Scrooge sees the large family Bob has to provide for.
* Scrooge receives a wreath from his nephew but takes it down and his frustration gets worse when Bean Bunny sings a carol outside his door. Scrooge refuses to give Bean Bunny a penny for singing and slams the door in his face. However he reopens the door and Bean Bunny thinks Scrooge has changed his mind only for Scrooge to throw the wreath onto him and slams the door again. He then turns to his employees who saw the whole thing but they hastily return to their work as though nothing happened but that doesn't stop them from giving him a nasty look (when his back is turned) implying they wanted to stick up for Bean Bunny but know that doing so can cost them their jobs.
** Of course this whole slapstick bit becomes a FunnyAneurysmMoment later when we see that Bean Bunny is homeless and watch him shivering with only a paper bag to wrap himself in on Christmas Eve night.
* In the commentary the creators relate a funny story from the screenings. A few children asked what the bookkeepers did wrong to get coal at the end. It had completely slipped their minds that Santa gives bad children coal in their stockings!

** This is straight out of the book as well: “'Couldn’t I take ’em all at once, and have it over, Jacob?' hinted Scrooge."
** although, "I think I'd rather not" becomes "Haunted!? I've already had enough of that!"
