* Loosely connected to ''Manga/RanmaOneHalf'' by virtue of being part of a spin-off of an ElsewhereFic called [[FanFic/BoyScoutsOneHalf Boy Scouts ½]], the story ''[[http://bs1-2.weebly.com/persp007.html Perspectives VII: A Hoelscher Carol]]'' has one of the characters, John Hoelscher, visited by three spirits that are actually three different aspects of his own personality. These "spirits" come {{cosplay}}ing as various anime characters: [[Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion Ikari Shinji]] as the past, [[Anime/RevolutionaryGirlUtena Kiryuu Touga]] as the present, and [[Anime/ElHazardTheMagnificentWorld Jinnai Katsuhiko]] as the future. Before they visit, they are heralded by [[LampshadeHanging Jacob Marley]], who is doing them a favor. Unlike traditional Scrooge {{Exp|y}}ies, John is not a miserly character, but he was at the time of this story suffering from psychological problems leading him to become a social outcast, [[spoiler: problems that the visiting spirits helped him work through]].

* ''Karroll's Christmas'', a made-for-TV movie, puts a spin on the story by having the ghosts visit the wrong house due to an apparent clerical error. Their main target was supposed to be the protagonist's Scrooge-like neighbor, though said protagonist also isn't feeling the Christmas spirit. Instead they proceed to show the protagonist the neighbor's past, present, and future, and he realizes how much he can relate to the man. Afterward the protagonist proceeds to try to change his neighbor for the better himself. It works, and it's implied the ghosts didn't make a mistake after all.

* ''Film/TheManWhoInventedChristmas'' has this in a roundabout way, as Dickens writing A Christmas Carol helps him reconnect with his family and friends in a manner similar to Scrooge.

* ''WebVideo/LouderWithCrowder'': The 2017 Holidays special featured a recreation of ''A Christmas Carol'', with Steven himself as "Ebenezer Website/YouTube", satirizing the video demonitization and censorship wave on the platform that started that year.

* ''Ebenezer'' is another resetting, starring Jack Palance as a crooked and crotchety saloon owner/gunslinger on the Canadian prairies. This Scrooge does have Christmas dinner--with his friend the madam of the local whorehouse. Marley is his old business partner Marlowe, Christmas Past is a First Nations woman, Christmas Present a Mountie, and Christmas Future is [[spoiler: Ebenezer's long-dead father]]. This version adds Sam Benson, a young rancher Ebenezer cheats out of his land before he could wed Marlowe's daughter Emily. The future scenes are expanded to show Scrooge ruthlessly gunning Benson down at high noon and dying while attempting to stop Emily from revealing how he cheated.

* ''Film/TheMuppetChristmasCarol''. Like the Disney version above, this was a semi-straight adaptation of the book rather than a use of its plot on an extant character. Surprisingly, while many of the book's characters were played by established Muppets, the three spirits were original character designs in line with Dickens's descriptions.[[note]]Originally were going to use already established Muppets for the Ghosts, but decided it would detract from the mysterious air they were supposed to have. While Miss Piggy and Gonzo (the first and third spirits) had their roles reassigned, Scooter -- who would have played the second spirit -- ended up not appearing at all.[[/note]] The dialogue is closer to the book than many a "straight" film version, too -- [[ShownTheirWork someone did the research]].
* Of note is the TV movie ''Film/AnAmericanChristmasCarol'' starring Creator/HenryWinkler as a depression-era Scrooge named Benedict Slade.
* ''Film/{{Scrooged}}'' is a modern cinematic retelling, with Ebenezer Scrooge the greedy banker replaced by Creator/BillMurray as morally bankrupt TV executive Frank Cross. Bonus points: Cross is staging a live-action adaptation of the original story, to be broadcast live on Christmas Eve. Much [[PlayingWithATrope playing around with the original's tropes]] ensues.
* ''Film/ADivasChristmasCarol'' is a made-for-TV modern retelling on VH-1 with a number of {{Gender Flip}}s. It stars Creator/VanessaWilliams as pop singer Ebony (Scrooge), Chilli from Music/{{TLC}} as Ebony's ex-bandmate Marly, Creator/KathyGriffin as the Ghost of Christmas Past, and John Taylor from Music/DuranDuran as Present. Amusingly, the Ghost of Christmas Future is an episode of ''Series/BehindTheMusic''.

* A [[Film/AChristmasCarol2000 TV movie in 2000]] set the story in [[SettingUpdate modern day inner Britain]], and featured Ross Kemp as 'Eddie Scrooge'. One of the most noticeable additions to the story it gave was the GroundhogDayLoop Scrooge goes through after each spectral visitation.
** Another interesting change was that two out of three ghosts were people Eddie knew - the Ghost of Christmas Past was his dead father, the Ghost of Christmas Present was Jacob Marley himself. The Ghost of Christmas Yet To Come wasn't someone Eddie knew [[spoiler: because the "ghost" was someone not even born yet - he's the son Eddie could have if he reforms]].
* Another GenderFlip version: ''Ebbie'', an '90s made-for-TV movie that re-imagines Scrooge as a selfish and grasping modern-day businesswoman, played by [[Series/AllMyChildren Susan Lucci]]. This one should get special notice because of a RelationshipWritingFumble -- our protagonist has better chemistry with Marley than with her lost past love.

Also, instead of begging for another chance for herself, she asks that even if she can't change her own horrible fate, at least let her help Tim Cratchit.

* ''Series/{{Blackadder}}'' presented a Christmas special based on Dickens' original story -- the twist being that the main character, Ebeneezer Blackadder, started out as the nicest man in England and, following an inadvertent tour through his ancestral history and future, was inspired by the exploits of his namesakes (as well as a not very pleasant vision of what his descendants will become if he remains nice) to become a ruthless bastard instead. However this leads to PyrrhicVillainy.

* Loren D.

It is strongly implied that what happened to Scrooge had been Bob Cratchitt doing the same thing.

* ''Webcomic/BrawlInTheFamily'' did a ''Franchise/SuperMarioBros'' version for the 2009 holiday season with the [[http://www.brawlinthefamily.com/?p=947 Mushroom Kingdom Carol.]] In it, the part of Scrooge is played by Mario who, after finally driving Bowser away from Mushroom Kingdom for good, was convinced by Wario (who is here as Marley) to assemble a financial society, effectively retiring from heroics. However, years later, Bowser [[spoiler:Jr. (on behalf of his dad)]] comes back with a vengeance to take over the Mushroom Kingdom and, not being in his prime physical condition anymore, Mario fails to save now-Queen Peach, leading him to become an embittered old codger with "a wrench [[CurseCutShort up h-]]", as Daisy puts it, and allow the Kingdom to sink into misery and degradation, with Bowser's Toadies collecting extorsive taxes from the citizens (and even kidnapping their relatives should they fail to pay!). Luigi's role in here is that of Bob Cratchitt, living in poverty without receiving a shred of compassion from his brother. And to top it off, the Ghosts of Christmas Past, Present and Yet to Come are represented by [[VideoGame/SuperMarioGalaxy Princess Rosalina]], Franchise/{{Kirby}} and [[spoiler:[[VideoGame/SuperMarioSunshine Shadow Mario]]]], respectively.

* Creator/RobertZemeckis' [[WesternAnimation/AChristmasCarol2009 2009 animated version]] is a straightforward telling done in MotionCapture with Creator/JimCarrey as Scrooge and all three ghosts of Christmas and Gary Oldman as Marley, Bob Crachit and Tiny Tim. This one reimagines the Ghosts of Christmas Past as a floating candlestick and Future as a LivingShadow. It is a very faithful adaptation, the most notable deviations are the liberties with the Ghosts' designs, an extended sequence of Scrooge being shrunk, and the chase scene with the Ghost of Christmas Yet to Come.
