  • Hilarious in Hindsight: Joel makes a joke about The Christmas That Almost Wasn't 24 years before the show made fun of it.
  • Moment of Awesome: This episode has more riffs in it than any other episode, a whopping 11.5 jokes/minute, one every 5 seconds.
  • Nightmare Fuel:
    • Many of the clowns in the circus short are pretty creepy, aside from Emmett Kelly's hobo get-up.
    • Joel and the bots are visually frightened by the statues of Finnish folklorist Elias Lönnrot (and the unmentioned "Impi") coming to life. Joel even calls them Golem.

  • Throw It In: At the end of the "Snack-tion" invention exchange where Crow and Tom are duking it out in the background as ninjas, Tom's head falls off. Again. Since the sketch was pretty much done anyway it was kept in, and it fits in well with its content along with Trace's adlib immediately afterward.
    Crow: Uh-oh. I broke him.
  • Viewer Gender Confusion: Crow has this about the actress playing the witch.
