YMMV / Arthur Christmas

  • Award Snub: Not getting an Oscar nomination.
  • Critical Research Failure: There is a city named Trelew in a Spanish-speaking country on the other side of the Atlantic from the one in Cornwall, but it's in Argentina, not Mexico.
  • Ear Worm: Justin Bieber's version of "Santa Claus is Comin' to Town" which plays before the film and during the credits.
  • Hilarious in Hindsight: This is not the first time elves acted as a super-spy prep team for Santa.
    • This was in production before that short though.
    • And both could be considered a Spiritual Successor to the elite E.L.F.S. squad that rescues Tim Allen with jet packs and tinsel guns in The Santa Clause.
  • Ho Yay: Peter the elf certainly has some (unreciprocated) feelings for Steve. For example, after the lights go out in HQ, Steve is heard saying, "Peter...let go of my hand, please."
    • Not to mention Peter got him underwear covered in S's and the slogan "I BELIEVE IN STEVE".
    • During the Christmas dinner scene early in the film, if you read the messages Steve is receiving on his HOHO, three of the four are from Peter. In order, they say, "Great job today, sir!", "You looked great today, sir!" and "I'm still up. Just so you know." Uh...yeah.
