The problem with Peter's historical events he saw on his booth in the Drunken Clam is that the Challenger exploded in the 80's, so Peter would be in his teenage years and hasn't met Joe yet. Also, the 9/11 attack and Obama being elected to president would have Cleveland with Peter, Joe, and Quagmire before he left Quahog in his own show.
Chris does not appear in this episode.
This title was originally called "Fairy Guy".
Because he was brought back from the dead in the previous episode, the opening theme is back to featuring Brian Griffin.
Brian Griffin is brought back from the dead in this episode.
This is the very first episode not to feature Brian since the character had been killed in the previous episode. As for this episode and the next, Vinny replaces him in the opening credits. However, there is still a picture of Brian in this episode.
With Brian 's absence, none of the main characters appeared in the whole show.
Stewie said he'd gone forward in time to a future Christmas. Would he not have realized after appearing at his home that Brian was no longer there? Even if he used his return pad immediately after visiting the store he would have still had to spend time at the house to avoid the rest of the family.
When Peter is drunk, he mentions Maggie, Bart, and Mr. Plow. These are characters from The Simpsons, Mr. Plow would be Homer.
Jerome from the episode "Jerome is the New Black" makes a return appearance.
The FOX ad for this episode featured the following dialogue:
Peter: You're not like over 40, are you?
Lois: What's wrong with women over 40?
Peter: Their bodies and personality.
This dialogue was not heard in the actual episode.
In the "black guy in Sweden" cutaway, they are talking German "blacken sie been" roughly translated to "he is black"
Meg was seen being sucked out in the vacuum by Stewie, but in the next scene, she is back in in the shuttle.
Peter: "It's the story of Christmas and the Immaculate Conception".
This is a common misunderstanding; what Peter means is the Virgin Birth. The Immaculate Conception refers to the dogma of Mary being free of the Original Sin when she was conceived by her mother Anne.
Lois is 43 years old.
Joe's backstory of facing the Grinch and falling off the roof of an orphanage changes to being caught with a wire while undercover and having his legs literally shot out from under him.
Even though the people were going backwards, they spoke forwards instead backwards.
