Trivia / Jingle All the Way

The 1996 film:

  • 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 Present (Denmark)
    • Turbo Dad (Serbia)
    • A Promise is a Promise (Italy)
    • A Toy Hero (Brazil)
  • Harpo Does Something Funny: Myron's monologues were likely this.
  • 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.
  • What Could Have Been: Joe Pesci was initially in mind to play Myron, however they went for Sinbad instead, opting for someone who was closer to Arnold's height.
    • Tim Allen was also considered for the role of Howard if Arnold didn't accept.
