Trivia: At the end of the film when Scrooge is going round being nice to everyone, as he's on his way to the Cratchit's house, we see in the background a shop called "Micklewhite's". This is Michael Caine's real surname. (01:20:55)

Trivia: Statler and Waldorf appear as ghosts (the Marley brothers) in memory of Richard Hunt and Jim Henson, who played them, respectively, and who both died prior to the movie being made.

Trivia: Towards the end of the film, you can see a tavern called "Statler and Waldorf", named after the two Muppet hecklers.

Revealing mistake: When Rizzo falls down the chimney and lands on the goose at Bob Cratchit's house, he burns his feet. When he is next to Gonzo, his feet are smoking. If you look closely, you can see the holes in the puppet's feet where the smoke comes out.
