None. Scrooge had a lover in some of the flashbacks but nothing explicit is shown or even implied, although the Ghost of Christmas Yet to Come shows what appears to be prostitutes cajoling with their customers in its scene of Old Joe's pawnshop.

None. However the Ghost of Christmas Yet to Come's future predictions are rather bleak, and it is implied that a child character has died.

Marley unties his jaw, which falls open with a loud CRACK. It's a little disturbing.

Nothing major.

Social drinking and smoking, not much else.

Ghostly visitors and elements, namely the bleak future, can be a little frightening for youngsters. Scrooge starts the film as an unsympathetic, selfish man as was his father in Christmas Past's scene of young Ebenezer's banishment to boarding school and after that only a mere three days with the family before going off to Fezziwig's apprenticeship.
