  • Besides Butch Hartman's portrait, the "eight oddball wishes" that Cosmo and Wanda produce include a toilet, an old-time bicycle, a donkey carrying a suitcase, a giant set of false teeth, a big toy submarine (which looks like the one Wanda transforms into during the song in "Christmas Every Day!"), a bowl of cereal, and a plastic whale (which resembles Big Ben).
  • The music that plays when Winter Squidlock sings, the "six jamming jellies" line is a background music piece titled "Stadium Rave", originally used in the episode, "Jellyfish Jam."

Cultural references

  • When Vicky stops singer her part of the song, her legs twirl up. This is is a reference to when the Wicked Which of the East dies in Wizard of Oz.
  • The elf that looks like Jimmy being chased by the elf that looks like Carl's clones is a reference to the Jimmy Neutron interstitial short, "Carl Squared".
  • The elf that looks like Patrick on top of the pine tree at the end of the short is a reference to "Christmas Who?" when Patrick jumps up on top of the coral tree during the song, The Very First Christmas.
