Trivia: Jingle All the Way
  • Actor Allusion: "You can't bench-press your way out of this one!" Howard's character wouldn't likely have time to work out much...
    • During the "You're my number one customer" scenes, he's shown squeezing one of those hand grips, so he does squeeze in some working out in his job, apparently.
  • Completely Different Title:
    • The Promised Gift (Mexico/Argentina)
    • My Father Has Promised (Turkey)
    • My Father is Turbo Man (Finland)
    • Mission: Christmas (Denmark)
    • Turbo Dad (Serbia)
  • Hey, It's That Guy!: The chain-smoking guy in the Booster costume is Curtis Armstrong, who played Booger in Revenge of the Nerds and also voices Dan on Dan Vs. and Snot on American Dad!.
    • Many mistakenly believe that it was Gilbert Gottfried that played Booster.
    • Vern Troyer (Mini-Me) and Big Show as two of the con men Santas.
    • Gale Force, one of the hosts of the Wintertainment parade, is John Jones.
  • Hey, It's That Voice!: Dementor at the beginning is played by Richard Moll, who at the time was voicing Two-Face in Batman: The Animated Series and is best known as Bull the bailiff from Night Court. When he says "Ta-ta, Turbo Man!", his voice becomes a dead ringer for that of Two-Face's.
  • Vindicated by Cable: Despite its oft-mocked reputation, it has enough of a fanbase for FX to give it the 24-hour marathon treatment during the holidays.
