Corrected entry: In the scene at Scrooge's office when his nephew comes to invite him to Christmas dinner, the lighting outside the front door is dimmer than the lighting coming in from the back windows.

Correction: Why is this a film mistake? There is a stronger light source at the back of the house than there is at the front. Not a mistake.

Continuity mistake: When Cratchett gets the bird from the shop, it's clear that the bird is a duck. But throughout the entire film he's referred to as a goose.

More quotes from Scrooge

Question: Near the end, when Scrooge is in the toy shop buying lots of toys, the shopkeeper has a shocked look on his face throughout, especially at the bit where Scrooge asks how much all the things are all together. Is it shock because Scrooge is suddenly nice, shock because Scrooge is buying up most of the shop and he's got to add it all up in his head quick, or both?

Answer: Most likely because he's buying the shop's entire inventory. That would be shocking enough to explain his reaction.
