* TheyWastedAPerfectlyGoodPlot: The third movie's sequence where Scott never became Santa takes up far less screentime than one would think. Details over how things are worse for his family (such as Neil and Laura's break-up) are glossed over. Carol doesn't even appear during this sequence.
* WhatDoYouMeanItsForKids: This is a film which shows Santa Claus falling off a roof and dying as a moment of BlackComedy.
** Note that this is after the film was toned down. Before it was picked up by Disney, the original treatment had Scott shooting Santa off the roof. With a shotgun.

* HarsherInHindsight: the Charlie Sheen quote from the second movie, where Scott believes that he "straightened out". Can be weird to watch knowing what Sheen has been up to as of late.[[note]]Let's just say that currently, all the naughty things Charlie Calvin did in the movie were actually far nicer in comparison to some of the drug-related problems Charlie Sheen has.[[/note]]

* {{Sequelitis}}: This one hit the reindeer the hardest. Tim, too; his heart obviously isn't into it come ''3'', and he's upstaged completely by [[LargeHam Martin Short]]. Heck, this trilogy's Website/RottenTomatoes pages even provide the page image.

It also didn't help that in ''3'' one well-liked character was DemotedToExtra and another [[ChuckCunninghamSyndrome disappeared entirely with no passing mention]]. Heck, this trilogy's Website/RottenTomatoes pages even provide the page image.

* GettingCrapPastTheRadar: During the career day scene in the first movie, a firefighter mentions that there's, "Nothing more painful than third degree burns." The teacher mentions after that she's, "Sorry about your partner."

** 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.
