* RepublicanItaly: The series contains many topical political references, as Peppone, the town mayor, head of the local Communist Party, and, for a time, Senator, and others comment on the issues of the day. The republic is also still young - some minor characters still are unequivocal royalists.

The ''Don Camillo'' stories were written by Giovannino Guareschi starting in 1945 for his satirical magazine ''Candido'', and soon afterward compiled into books. In the Italian original the series is entitled ''Mondo piccolo'', referring to the "little world" of the villages and small towns in the Po valley near Parma. Most of the stories puplished in periodicals, and all of those that were anthologized into books, center on the hotheaded priest Don Camillo (who often talks to {{Jesus}}... and Jesus talks back) and his eternal rivalry with Giuseppe "Peppone" Bottazzi, the communist mayor of his little town[[note]] The town is not named in the stories, while in the films it is called Brescello after the one where the exterior shots were made.[[/note]]. Both are authority figures for the town, both fought in the war together, and both like using their fists to decide their arguments. Most of the stories tell about the life in a small town, where everybody knows everybody, but many people do not like each other, which is pretty accurate as small towns go...

* TankGoodness: In the third movie, in a scene adapted from one of the stories. Don Camillo and Peppone find out that a peasant is hiding an American M24 Chaffee tank from World War II in his barn (and wants to get rid of it). While manoeuvring it, Peppone comments on how good its mechanics were, just before [[spoiler:[[OhCrap accidentally firing the tank's gun]], destroying his peace dove statue in the process]].
