** In Dickens' book, the Ghost of Christmas Present takes Scrooge to see the Christmas celebrations of an isolated group of miners, a pair of lighthouse keepers, and the crew of a ship at sea. These scenes are rarely included in film or television adaptations, though ''Scrooge'' (1935), the 1971 animated short, and the 1999 Patrick Stewart TV version have them, and the 1951 ''Film/{{Scrooge|1951}}'' has the miners.

** The Ignorance and Want scene is left out of many of the more family friendly versions. It is incredibly rare to find an animated version featuring it, with the 1971 and 2009 versions being some of the few exceptions. Some of the lighter live action versions also exclude it, such as the Muppets Christmas Carol and the 1938 film with Reginald Owen. Oddly enough, the 1970 musical also cuts it out, despite expanding on some of the other darker scenes in the story.

** It's now believed that Tim suffered from rickets, thanks to smoky conditions at the time in London as well as malnutrition. Poor children were particularly susceptible, and those afflicted were vulnerable to other diseases like tuberculosis and pneumonia. It was a problem that would be solved by eating vitamin D rich foods such as fish, cheese and liver, Scrooge probably made sure Tim was well-fed and helped cure his rickets.

It was a problem that would be solved by eating vitamin D rich foods such as fish, cheese and liver, Scrooge probably made sure Tim was well-fed and helped cure his rickets. This theory was aided by the fact that 20 years after the novel was published, Dickens railed against malnutrition and rickets in children.
