A selfish, cynical television executive is haunted by three spirits bearing lessons on Christmas Eve.
At the end of the movie, when everybody is singing "Put a little love in your heart", Frank (Bill Murray) says (among many other things): "Feed me, Seymour!" This is a reference to Little Shop of Horrors (1986), in which Murray had a small part.
Ghost of Christmas Present:
Close your eyes...! And think of snowflakes and moonbeams and whiskers on kittens...
Ghost of Christmas Present: Nooooo peeking!
Ghost of Christmas Present: Of rainbows, forget-me-nots... of misty meadows and sun-dappled pools. Oh, look! There's Mr Hedgehog. I wonder where he's going? Perhaps to HARLEM!
Frank Cross: ...
When the phone auto-dials (right after the appearance of Lew Hayward) you can see Claire's full name on the phone display. Caller ID wasn't available until 1988 - the year Scrooged was released. It seems a bit strange that Frank has saved the name and number of a woman he hasn't talked to in 15 years on his telephone. When the phone was installed, Frank may have had his secretary or the IT department put everyone in his address book into the phone, and Claire's name probably would have been in there.
About a third of the way through the closing credits, Bill Murray appears with the word "Scrooged" across the screen in front of him. He looks down and brushes the front of his jacket a few times, with each brush a couple of the letters in the title chase off the screen as if he's brushing them off his jacket.
