Trivia: Olive the Other Reindeer
- Actor Allusion: Schnitzel the reindeer's song "We're Not So Bad" starts off sounding vaguely like "Everybody Hurts" by REM. Schnitzel's voice actor is Michael Stipe.
- Hey, It's That Voice!: The Postman is voiced by Dan Castellaneta aka Homer Simpson and Olive is voiced by Drew Barrymore.
- Truth in Television: The postman's worry isn't without merit. By the time the holidays roll around, people do use the postal service a lot more frequently to the point they start hiring seasonal helpers just to lighten the load.
