* UnfortunateImplications:
** AlternateCharacterInterpretation: Santa as tyrannical dictator who makes an entire town - including humans - suffer for the actions of some mouse children.
** BrokenAesop: Book-learnin' is bad, blind faith is bad and children shouldn't have opinions that differ from others.

* WeirdAlEffect: This special isn't shown on TV much during the Christmas season anymore. Modern audiences might know the song "Even A Miracle Needs A Hand" from SouthPark as opposed to this show.

** AlternateCharacterInterpretation: Santa as tyrannical dictator who makes an entire town - including humans - suffer for the actions of one mouse little boy. He then requires a big show of apology and appeasement despite supposedly being omniscient enough to ''know'' Albert feels guilty, meaning he shouldn't really need the overly complicated business with the clocktower.

* FridgeBrilliance: Since the special looks as if it were set some time in the past, maybe this incident is what led Santa to start making his "naughty or nice" lists to prevent this from happening again in the future...

* UnfortunateImplications: In the special, Santa Claus comes off as passive-aggressive and a believer in DisproportionateRetribution, while the song "Give Your Heart a Try" has a definite DumbIsGood[=/=]ScienceIsBad vibe.
** Albert refuses to accept that Santa's existence is proven in this universe, implying that scientists just reject whatever doesn't fit their pet theory and have no sense of wonder or belief.
** Despite a chorus of "Silent Night," the joy of Christmas is entirely the work of Santa and his gifts; the religious importance is never once mentioned.
