* FunnyAneurysmMoment: Jodi's (African-American) boss taking over at the MallSanta on short notice is PlayedForLaughs, but is otherwise a non-issue. Thirteen years later, Mall of America's announcement that it's Santa would be played by a Black man received a nation-wide racist backlash.

* AngstWhatAngst: How does Walter's wife react to finding out he has an illegitimate child from a previous relationship, which he himself never knew about? You'd probably expect her to be angry or at least concerned, but she's downright delighted.
** In the animated version, she ''does'' suspiciously ask, "You have another son, Walter?".

* MomentOfAwesome: The SnowballFight scene.
* {{Narm}}: Zooey Deschanel's performance. She's clearly going for antisocial, but she comes off as bored.

* JerkassWoobie: Jodi's boss at Gimbel's. He's cold and a bit of a stick-in-the-mud, but like everyone else there, he just wants to do his job and get through the holidays, and it's implied he's already on thin ice as it is. You can't blame him for getting fed up with Buddy making things more complicated.

** While walking in the woods Buddy gets attacked by a raccoon, which is never mentioned again.

** While walking in the woods Buddy gets attacked by a raccoon, which is never mentioned again. Though, this scene may have intentionally been Buddy's first encounter with culture shock and RealityEnsues and served the purpose of showing that animals and people outside of Santa's North Pole are nowhere near as nice as the talking animals and elves of Santa's place.
