* NeverMyFault: Meisterburger blames his fall entirely on the toy and not at all on his failure to watch where he was going.

** Also nearly ''every damned time'' some part of the Santa legend is shown the origin of, 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.

* DiscOneFinalBoss: The Winter Warlock is hyped up in his debut scene as the potential BigBad...but Burgermeister Meisterburger winds up having that position instead.

** Keenan Wynn as Winter Warlock to a lesser extent. Some of the features such as the long nose and eyes match up very well.

** To the bad guys, Jessica is sort of this. When Grimsley comes to arrest the Kringles, he also arrests the Warlock, even though the Warlock had nothing to do with making toys. Jessica, on the other hand, was there to warn the Kringles about the impending trap, but is not taken into custody. The only punishment she seems to suffer is, as she puts it later, "My own town, turned against me!" which may suggest she's been fired as schoolteacher.



* [[PostKissCatatonia Post Kiss Goofiness]]: A kiss on the cheek from Jessica causes Kris's eyeballs to roll in his head, and he says "Gol''ly''!" like some country bumpkin.

* RhymesOnADime: All of the male Kringles -- other than Kris -- have first names that rhyme with Kringle, such as Wingle and Dingle.

* UltimateAuthorityMayor: Burgermeister Meisterburger, who has the power to ban toys "throughout the land, from sea to sea." Pretty impressive, since a burgermeister (Or more accurately, Burgomeister, which means 'Master of the Burghers') in {{real life}} is basically a ''mayor''. Add to that, he has the authority to arrest the toy makers of the ''King.''

** It's also noted by Tanta Kringle that the Kringles were the Royal Toymakers "years and years ago," and she wistfully comments that she hopes Kris taking the toys out into the world will make the Kringles world-renowned as they once were. The implication is that they've diminished in importance - and, given how few of them there are, they've likely diminished in number as well.



* WhereTheHellIsSpringfield: Where exactly is Sombertown? It's implied that the town is somewhere in Germany, given the use of the title of ''burgermeister'' and Grimsley's helmet (below), but this is never explicitly stated, and the hodge-podge of vocal accents in the show doesn't really clarify anything.

** Burgermeister Meisterburger seems to speak in a stereotypical German accent and wears lederhosen. Grimsley has a small mustache. Considering that it was released in the seventies, the concept that they would frame post-WWII Germany as the grim, dark, and cheerless "Sombertown" isn't such a reach.
