* SomeAnvilsNeedToBeDropped: Throughout the special, Aaron is embittered with hatred for all humans due to the murder of his parents until playing for the newborn Jesus. When his lamb returns, Greer Carson's narration mentions that "Aaron's heart was filled with joy and love. And he knew at last that the hate he had carried there was wrong. As ALL hatred will ever be wrong."

* ScrewedByTheNetwork: As of 2015, ABC Family/Freeform has taken to cutting out the song "When The Goose Is Hanging High", presumably to retain precious advertising time. This means that the movie transitions from Aaron fleeing into the desert following his parents' murder, to the scene in Jerusalem, not explaining at all how he came to be there nor why he is apparently enslaved by a showman.
