** The Magoo version had to drop a fair amount of material, but the most notable may be Scrooge's sister and nephew. This actually serves to make Scrooge even more sympathetic. As one of the songs says, he really is all alone in the world.

Added DiffLines:

* ObliquelyObfuscatedOccupation: The book never specifies exactly what Scrooge's business is. He's referred to as being hard on his debtors, so many adaptations make him some sort of [[LoanShark moneylender]]. On the other hand, it's mentioned that he's well known on "'Change," that is, the merchandise/stock exchange in London. And he did his apprenticeship with Fezziwig, who was apparently a wholesaler of unspecified goods.

* FranchiseZombie: Due to the sheer number of versions. Probably the only sequel-less work that qualifies for this.

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

* GenreSavvy: Scrooge is evidently a quick learner; by the time the third ghost comes around, he correctly deduces, based on the previous two, that it is going to show him the future and that despite its frightful appearance and demeanor it is there to ''help'' him instead of harm him.
