* SpiritualLicensee: The third film takes a ''lot'' of cues from ''Back to the Future Part 2'' when it comes to the alternate timeline, semi-mixed with ''It's a Wonderful Life'' for the rest of it.

* HilariousInHindsight: Scott takes Charlie to Denny's where aside from a Japanese party, only a few single fathers are seen eating with their children. By TheNewTens, eating out at Denny's or Applebee's on Christmas Eve isn't that unheard of as many chain restaurants are open and have holiday-themed specials.

* DesignatedVillain: Laura and Neal are not wrong to be concerned about what they perceive to be Scott's erratic behavior. In real life, if someone began acting like Scott was, they would want to get him as far away from Charlie as humanly possible. Also the cops later in the film are seen as trying to ruin Christmas by arresting Santa, but from their perspective, they're just holding someone who kidnapped a young boy.

* AlternateCharacterInterpretation: A fan theory for the films is that Scott's boss in the first movie and Father Time from the sequels (both of whom were played by the late [[YouLookFamiliar Peter Boyle]]) are actually ''the same person'', and that Time [[TheChessmaster secretly manipulated events from behind the scenes]] during the first film to help Scott embrace his destiny since he knew he would go on to become the best Santa of all time.

** FridgeBrilliance: The previous Santa gave a little wave to Scott right before disappearing, and the Santa Clause says that he who puts on the suit must do the job until no longer able to, "by accident ''or design''." Perhaps that Santa was ready to pass the job on, and gave the elves plenty of advance notice that he intended to go out with a bang and that someone else would be returning from his flight that year. Any angst they felt would already have been worked out by the time Scott showed up at the North Pole.
