** In 2012, Harvey Finevoice gets his own visits from three completely different Ghosts: [[spoiler:(WebVideo/TheNostalgiaCritic, the actual Ghost of Christmas present, and Future!Linkara)]]. Being DangerouslyGenreSavvy, Harvey is understandably pissed off. Though the backstory-revealing episodes are set at Christmas, the lesson is not for Harvey to regain holiday spirit or to stop being a jerk or to trust others. It's that [[spoiler:he needs to accept that Linkara is not and never will be his dead son, and that he needs to say goodbye and let the past go.]] Interestingly, there is no BadFuture. It's the ''present'' that's dark.

* There was supposed to be a ''WesternAnimation/Sealab2021'' episode called "Quinnmas" where three ghosts confront Quinn about his alcoholism. Blackout Past is a ghost who talks slow cause he's paid hourly, Blackout Present is a green monster, and Blackout Future is a lounge singer who encourages Quinn not to give up drinking. However, the writers determined that the episode wasn't very funny, and canned it. A rough version of the episode can be seen on the Season 3 DVD.

Comparable only to ''Film/ItsAWonderfulLife'' as a well-known story which a series adapts to/parodies with its own characters. The original was by Charles Dickens: it was [[OlderThanRadio published in 1843]]. When used in TV shows, characters from the show frequently fill the roles of the ghosts: [[JacobMarleyWarning Marley]], who serves to announce that the other ghosts are coming and serve as an illustration of the eventual fate of Scrooge's soul; the Ghost of Christmas Past, who shows the Scrooge character "You weren't always this way" (in which case IHatePastMe is common); The Ghost of Christmas Present, who shows them "Other people aren't this way"; and the Ghost of Christmas Future ("Yet to Come" in Dickens' original, often portrayed as TheGrimReaper), who shows the character "Look how things will turn out if you stay this way" (which can lead to FutureMeScaresMe). Results in the character having a change of heart and turning away from whatever character flaw was being explored.

** To be fair, the ep in question never has Tex reform, merely relent in a scheme that would have hurt the woman he once loved. Add to that, Bravestarr himself lampshades in the end-lesson segment that, while Tex did something good today, the audience shouldn't expect it again.

* The third ''AllDogsGoToHeaven'' movie has this invoked by Charlie. Seeing that Carface is the only one close enough to Belladonna to stop her, he decides to "scare the Dickens" out of Carface. Using magic provided by Anabelle, he, Itchy, and Sasha turn into the three ghosts (Itchy as Ghost of Christmas Past, Sasha as Ghost of Christmas Present, and Charlie himself as Ghost of Christmas Future) and give Carface a scare.

* The ''MutantLeague'' ChristmasEpisode "Strike" is pretty much the same as ''A Christmas Carol'', but with no ghosts.

** A later episode features a segment which parodies ''Series/TheMuppetShow''. Mr Burns mentions being visited by three spirits on Christmas prompting Grandpa and Jasper (standing in for StatlerAndWaldorf) to say "I wish this show would be visited by three new writers!"
