- Adaptation Displacement: Some people are only aware of the Mr. Magoo character through this special and don't know it was a one off special for a whole series starring him.
- Ear Worm: Many of the songs are very catchy.
- "It's Great To Be Back On Broadway" is a very memorable, upbeat tune that perfectly sets the mood as Magoo makes his way to the theater.
- "Ringle, Ringle", the song that Scrooge/Magoo sings while counting money.
- "We're Despicable" (Plunderer's March), the specials memorable Villain Song.
- Tear Jerker: For many kids, "I'm All Alone In The World" was a Gut Punch of a song.
