YMMV: Twas The Night Before Christmas
  • Ear Worm: Applies to most of the musical numbers, but especially "Even a Miracle Needs A Hand".
  • Fridge Brilliance: Since the special looks as if it were set some time in the past, maybe this incident is what led him to start making his "naughty or nice" lists to prevent this in the future...
  • Unfortunate Implications: In the special, Santa Claus comes off as passive-aggressive and a believer in Disproportionate Retribution, while the song "Give Your Heart a Try" has a definite Dumb Is Good/Science Is Bad 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.
