  • All of the animation movements on the characters and objects are smoother than they were in the original release.
  • Snow effects were added for detail.
  • Silhouettes were added to the windows in the ending scene.
  • George's truck was blue in the original. It is now brown.


  • In the original, the song that played before the episode ended was He Is Born, The Holy Child. In the current release, it is Away in a Manger.
