* ScrewedByTheNetwork: As of 2015, ABC Family/Freeform has taken to cutting out the song "When The Goose Is Hanging High", presumably to retain precious advertising time. This means that the movie transitions from Aaron fleeing into the desert following his parents' murder, to the scene in Jerusalem, not explaining at all how he came be there nor why he is apparently enslaved by a showman.

* SomeAnvilsNeedToBeDropped: Throughout the special, Aaron is embittered with hatred for all humans due to the murder of his parents until playing for the newborn Jesus. When his lamb returns, Greer Carson's narration mentions that "Aaron's heart was filled with joy and love. And he knew at last that the hate he had carried there was wrong. As ALL hatred will ever be wrong." A valid point regardless of when it aired, but especially for its original airing in 1968 (a year that saw, among other things, the assassinations of [[UsefulNotes/CivilRightsMovement Dr. Martin Luther King]] that April; followed exactly two months later by the assassination of New York Senator and Democratic Presidential candidate [[UsefulNotes/RobertFKennedy]] along with riots following Dr. King's death and at the Democratic National Convention in Chicago).
