* AssInALionSkin: During the song "Why Can't the Animals Smile?," Baba the lamb pretends to be a lion, a frog, and a hog; Joshua the camel pretends to be an alligator and an elephant; and Samson the donkey pretends to be a caribou.
* AsTheGoodBookSays: The show begins with Greer Garson reading from the beginning of the second chapter of [[TheBible Luke]], with further readings from the infancy narratives throughout, ending with Matthew 5, 8.
** Slightly subverted in the fact that the Bible itself contains no mention of anyone remotely resembling The Little Drummer Boy; It started as a song in 1949, based loosely off a French legend only two centuries older than that.
