For one, thing, there is no Jacob Marley. Instead, the Ghost of Christmas Past shows up with several balls and a chain. He shows Scrooge a vision of Dr. Frank N. Stein, to whom he refused to lend money to finish his monster. Count Dracula serves as his assistant, instead of Igor, and he takes some of Dr. Jekyll's formula.
The Ghost of Christmas Present is a petite blonde lady, whom Scrooge attempts to seduce. She shows him a vision of a poet named Robert (Bolling?) who dies trying to elope with his girl friend.
The Ghost of Christmas to Come shows Scrooge another vision - of Cinderella.
Scrooge wakes up and decides to mend his ways, so he takes a chamber pot full of his money outside, and offers it to a woman, who has a Bobby arrest him for soliciting her.
