- Germans Love David Hasselhoff: The Christmas Special From All of Us to All of You (including Ferdinand) is aired every Christmas Eve in Sweden since 1960, with ratings only rivalled by major sport events. When Ferdinand was pulled for one year, public outcry forced the channel to restore the film for the next year.
- Snark Bait: A meta example. Whenever the book's prior banning under facist is brought up, expect people to laugh at the thought of someone being afraid of a book for children.
