** Somewhat subverted in 2015, when ABC Family made several rather sloppy edits in order to fit more time for ads. One rather noticeable edit is the removal of the entire scene where Hero Boy meets the Hobo, cutting directly to Hero Boy trying to wake himself up and the ski sequence. Another edit drastically shortens the scene in which the Polar Express arrives at the North Pole, cutting from the initial arrival to the kids noticing the elves. It's...rather jarring to those who know the movie very well.

* TheOtherDarrin: Andre Sogliuzzo did the voices for Smokey and Steamer except in the Caribou scene, where Smokey (the fat one) was voiced by Michael Jeter, the actor who did the motion capture for both characters. This may have been left in as a tribute to Jeter, who died during post-production.
