* {{Hypocrite}}: The Burgermeister banned toys, but reveals that he's an avid yoyo enthusiast when Kris gives him one in an almost successful attempt to convince him to drop the ban. He's pretty angry when he realizes he's breaking his own law.

* IDontLikeTheSoundOfThatPlace: Erm, Sombertown. A MeaningfulName too, as everyone there is sad and depressed until Kris comes along.



* InkSuitActor: Kris (Mickey Rooney) and the narrator, S.D. Kluger (Fred Astaire).
** Keenan Wynn as the Winter Warlock to a lesser extent. Some of the features such as the long nose and eyes match up very well.

Added DiffLines:

* CreateYourOwnHero: The person to thank most for Santa's career? Burgermeister Meisterburger. This starts by the villain rejecting the DoorstopBaby (ensuring a group of toymakers find him) and every aspect of Santa's life and every Christmas tradition is a direct result of Kris taking steps to defy the villain's silly laws.

* AchievementsInIgnorance: The Warlock's enchanted corn that makes reindeer fly was a failed experiment, or so he claims. As it turns out, it has more practical uses than he thought.

* CaptainObvious: Kris's observation to Tanta Kringle that "I'm a man now!" Double points for having this declaration immediately follow the {{Narrator}}'s announcement that Kris was now a man.
** Also nearly ''every damned time'' the special shows the origin of some part of the Santa legend, the kids the narrator is telling the story to feel the need to point it out. Made particularly annoying since the kids are ''very'' bad actors.

* DoorstopBaby: Kris himself.
** Unique in that the person who owned the doorstep Kris was left on (Burgermeister Meisterburger!) had no interest in raising a child, and had the baby sent to an orphan asylum. It's only due to the forces of nature and some friendly animals that Baby Claus ended up with the Kringles.

* EvilCripple: Burgermeister is this after the fall that causes him to hate toys, walking with crutches or being pushed in a wheelchair for the remainder of the cartoon.



* FriendToAllLivingThings: Kris.
** He's also a FriendToAllChildren, naturally.

* TheGrinch: Burgermeister, of course.



* KarmaHoudini: Again the Burgermeister. Despite all the misery and unhappiness he causes everyone, he just quietly dies offscreen, apparently from natural causes. As S.D. Kluger obliquely puts it, he and his family just "sort of died off, and fell out of power", as represented by his portrait falling off his wall, to be replaced by one of Kris as Santa Claus. Grimsley apparently doesn't get any comeuppance either, although his notable absence from the Burgermeister's side following Kris' escape could suggest he lost his job over it.

* KilledOffscreen: The Burgermeister dies offscreen and implicitly takes his lineage with him. Given the fact that he hates children and doesn't seem to be married, that wouldn't be surprising.

Added DiffLines:

* MrsClaus: The special is unique in that it actually gives her an origin, recounting how she and her husband first met and first fell in love.


Added DiffLines:

* NoSenseOfHumor: Burgermeister's villainous actions start when he breaks his funnybone, but he clearly had no use for it before either.


Added DiffLines:

* RedemptionRejection: Burgermeister is a rare case of a Christmas villain who never truly reforms, but he almost does. After Chris gives him a gift (the method he uses to befriend both the Warlock and Jessica) he's actually happy for a few brief minutes. However, Grimsley reminds him he's breaking his own law, embarrassing him in public, so he reverts to his old attitude quickly.
