* AccidentalInnuendo:
-->'''Officer:''' I pulled you over for riding a riding a what's that thing?
-->'''Jingle:''' This is Vixen.
-->'''Officer:''' Riding a Vixen the wrong way down a one-way street.
* AdaptationDisplacement: Not many people are aware of the original poem that the special is based on (and the fact that the Miser Brothers weren't in the original poem).
* AnticlimaxBoss: Mother Nature is hyped up to be a dangerous, hot-headed woman, whom even her vicious children fear. The main characters are nervous but bravely go to confront her... only to have a charming friendly lunch with her and have all of their problems peacefully solved without any hesitation from Mother Nature.
** Although we definitely get the feeling [[GoodIsNotNice she CAN be scary if she wants to be]] --she's able to frighten her sons into obedience, at least. (With ''lightning.'')
* ContestedSequel: ''A Miser Brothers Christmas'' has a rather divisive reception. Some consider it a travesty and some find it to be a worthy follow-up to the original special.
* EarWorm: Both of the Misers' {{Image Song}}s:
** "I'm Mr. White Christmas! I'm Mr. Snow!/ I'm Mr. Icicle! I'm Mr. 10 below! / Friends call me Snow Miser whatever I touch / Turns to snow in my clutch! / I'm too much!"
** "I'm Mr. Green Christmas! I'm Mr. Sun! / I'm Mr. Heat Blister! I'm Mr. 101! / They call me Heat Miser whatever I touch / Starts to melt in my clutch! / I'm too much!"
*** Big Bad Voodoo Daddy [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1h9tbhGF1YQ makes their songs even more catchy!]]
** The song the elves sing in the beginning of A Miser Brothers' Christmas also counts.
* EnsembleDarkhorse: The Miser brothers, which led to them getting their own special several decades later.
** The same goes for the live-action version, but only for Michael Mckean's Snow Miser, as he seems to be the only one in the whole thing having fun.
* EvilIsCool: See "Ensemble Darkhorse" above.
** Unless [[EvilIsCool Evil Is]] [[IncrediblyLamePun Hot]].
* FanonDiscontinuity: Many prefer to forget about the live-action remake that aired on NBC in 2006.
* HarsherInHindsight: Snow Miser's reluctance to let Heat Miser make it sunny in the North Pole has become much more reasonable due to research into global warming, which ironically has caused winters in the south to become colder.
* HoYay: The Heat and Snow Misers get some in ''A Miser Brothers' Christmas''.
* JustHereForGodzilla: After seeing it the first time, the real reason you'll see it again is because of the Miser brothers. Mostly because of [[EarWorm those SONGS.]]
* OneSceneWonder: Okay, so they've got slightly larger parts. The one thing people remember from this special is the Miser Brothers, in no small part because of [[RunningGag those SONGS.]] Half this page is devoted to the guys, even.
* SignatureScene: The Miser Brothers and [[RuleOfThree those SONGS.]]
* SpotlightStealingSquad: Three guesses as to whom this applies to. No points after the first guess. [[note]] Hint: they're too much! And it involves [[OverlyLongGag those SONGS!]] [[/note]]
