* NoCelebritiesWereHarmed: Joe, the new Santa being brought into the position, is a pretty clear tribute to Fred Rogers of Series/MisterRogersNeighborhood. An intelligent older gentleman and loving FriendToAllChildren who hosts a weekly children's program on public television (Uncle Joey's Treehouse) and entertains kids with soft gentle lessons and puppetry. Unlike the actual Mr. Rogers, though, Joe is much less successful career-wise, which frees him up to become Santa.

* EEqualsMCHammer: Ernest has one of these moments when Harmony has her doubts about Santa Claus:
-->'''Harmony''': There's no such thing! Think about it: a guy who flies around the whole world in one night. It just doesn't quite correspond to the laws of time and travel.\\
'''Ernest''': Now, now, now, now, now, it's possible. You take the International Date Line, multiply it by the Time Zones, divided by the accelerated rotation of the earth... uh, carry the 1, and, uh, allowing for the Vernal Equinox on the Tropic of Cancer, he might just pull it off.

* LargeHam: Ernest P. Worrell, just before his takeoff to bring the sleigh to Santa:
-->'''Ernest''': It's time to slip the surly bounds of Earth, and dance the skies on laughter's silver wings.\\
'''Thisbe''': Oh, brother...

** Joe Carruthers' old job as a kids' TV host is reminiscent of such kiddie TV shows as Series/MisterRogersNeighborhood and Series/CaptainKangaroo.

** The old Santa begins to sadly realize, that he kept going in his festive-role far longer than he should have done. ''Because he loved it so much''. [[PassingTheTorch He's made the task of appointing a new Santa]] that much harder for himself. In cherishing Christmas too much, he may have doomed the holidays for everyone forever.

* NoAntagonist: The only Ernest movie not to have any sort of central villain. Joe's agent Marty is the closest example as he is somewhat of a jerk and provides some trouble such as being the one who has Santa arrested, but he does not do so out of any intentional malevolence and does legitimately believe that he's helping Joe's career.
