* ArchieComics' ''ComicBook/SonicTheHedgehog'' #6 did a (non-canon) retelling with Robotnik as Scrooge, Rotor as Cratchit, and Sonic as all three ghosts. The spirits almost succeed when they show him the future, where he's grown old and the Freedom Fighters still oppose him, until he sees he wins the final battle (even though he's destroyed everything else, and he ends up getting blown up by a bomb Sonic sent back to him in the present earlier, rendering his victory fruitless and short-lived).

* The short story "Solitary as an Oyster" by Mur Lafferty has a real life Scrooge being visited by the crew of a ''GhostHunters'' type show, with each crew member getting visited by one of the ghosts. It turns out the positive effect of the ghost's visit really only works if you get all three.

* ''WebVideo/EpicRapBattlesOfHistory'' has [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cP6VqB4klpQ Donald Trump vs. Ebeneezer Scrooge]], which starts out like a standard rap battle until Trump shows his chest and chains, revealing himself to be merely the Jacob Marley figure and doesn't stick around for the rebuttal. J.P. Morgan and Music/KanyeWest represent Christmas Past and Present, with a more traditional yet fully-voiced Yet To Come.

* ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'':
** "[[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS4E20ForWhomTheSweetieBelleToils For Whom the Sweetie Belle Toils]]" presents a non-holiday version, where Rarity's sister Sweetie Belle destroys a key part of her fashion ensemble out of spite and jealousy. Princess Luna, who has the [[DreamWalker power to enter dreams]], shows Sweetie Belle visions of the past to show that Rarity does not intentionally outshine her, the present to show that the sisters are more alike than they realize, and the future to reveal the consequences of Sweetie Belle's actions.
** "[[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS6E8AHearthsWarmingTail A Hearth's Warming Tail]]" has Twilight Sparkle regaling Starlight Glimmer with her favorite Hearth's Warming Eve story. The plot revolves around a Scrooge-like unicorn mage named Snowfall Frost (portrayed by Starlight Glimmer) who devises a spell to eliminate the holiday altogether so everypony in Equestria can focus on more practical things (combining some elements from ''How the Grinch Stole Christmas''). Three spirits of Hearth's Warming Past (Applejack), Presents (Pinkie Pie) and Yet to Come (Princess Luna) show her how much the holiday means to other ponies, and [[ApocalypseHow the apocalyptic consequences]] [[BadFuture of her spell]], convincing Snowfall to change her mind.

** They had previously done a short that riffed on the story with Yosemite Sam as Scrooge, Porky Pig as Cratchit, and Bugs Bunny dressing up as a ghost to scare Sam straight. Much looser an adaptation than even most of the other works on this page, as there's only one ghost, he's a fake, he spends much of the cartoon simply spooking Sam with loud noises and ice cold bathtubs, and in the end gets him to change his ways by simply threatening him with a trip "[[{{Hell}} Down There]]." Of course, it's a seven-minute short, adapting the whole story would probably have been impossible. In ''Bugs Bunny's Looney Christmas Tales, Yosemite states he was just acting and that he's still greedy and then starts to get back everything he donated.

* ''[[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/A_Carol_for_Another_Christmas A Carol For Another Christmas]]'' was an original 1964 television providing a SettingUpdate of the original story as well as [[AuthorTract promoting the works of the United Nations]]. The cast includes Sterling Hayden, Steve Lawrence, Eva Marie Saint, Ben Gazzara, Britt Eklund and Peter Sellers, working from a story and script by Creator/RodSerling, which may explain the whole thing feels like an extended ''Series/TwilightZone'' episode.

** 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.
