How could George and Maria have had a kid anyway? By the time George returns to Earth, Maria has already been sealed in Magicant, and the prologue makes no mention of them having children.
They had a child before the aliens took them away, and he or she just went unmentioned.
How does Ana manage to wear short sleeves in such a snowy place as, well, Snowman?
If Podunk, Merrysville, and Ellay were originally called Mother's Day, Thanksgiving, and Valentine, then why weren't the towns of Reindeer, Spookane, Snowman, and Youngtown also named after holidays? Or should I ask why the former three were in the first place?
At first, you're thinking, Hey, Maria's not dead after all! In fact, she's been Queen Mary all along, everything's gonna be alright. But then you realize Oh, wait- she was kidnapped and placed in a completely remote, barren area for supposedly the rest of her life with only her imagination to keep her company.
Its even worse, as it is heavily implied in the original version that Giygas himself killed Maria after freaking out because of her song, and imprisoned her mind within Magicant, probably believing that to an act of mercy on his behalf.
