Character mistake: In the scene where Kris's knowledge is being tested, he incorrectly gives the vice president of President John Quincy Adams. Kris states John Quincy Adams' vice president was Daniel D. Thompkins. That's wrong. John Quincy Adams' vice president was John C. Calhoun. Daniel D. Thompkins was the vice president under President James Monroe.
Other mistake: The traveling camera used during the opening credits is not positioned correctly; it is tilted to the right, causing the whole scene to be crooked.
Fred: That baseball player sure looks like a giant to me.
Susan: Sometimes people grow very large, but that's abnormal.
Fred: I'll bet your mother told you that, too.
Trivia: It was so cold during filming in New York in winter that the cameras froze several times.
Question: I've always wanted to know what Kris and the little Dutch girl were saying to each other.
