  • Trivia

    • When Mikey kisses Mitsuki, she deflates and blows away followed by hearts, and Mikey blushes leading some to believe that he may have feelings for her.

    • This is the first time Guano says something besides "Guano" in the LilyMu scene (he says "yaaaaay!")

    • The song chimney sweep Guano was whistling is "Chim Chim Cheree" from Disney's "Mary Poppins"

    • The items that were thrown through Ozu's old fence include a TV, a kitten, an old lady, and later, a bag of toys.

    • According to Guano, LilyMu is finished taping its first season since Mikey came to Japan.

    • In the flashback, young Ozu looks exactly the same as present day Ozu.

    • Mikey kisses Mitsuki in this episode.

    • What happened to everyone if Mikey did not win the scratch-off:
      Ozu: Cancelled LilyMu after ratings plummeted.
      Guano: Chimney sweeper with a bad cockney accent.
      Gonard: Never stopped acting his LilyMu part.
      Lily: Married Yoshi, got very fat, and has kids following her around.
      Mitsuki: A washed up actress who refuses to accept reality.

    • Guano is Ozu's son.

  • Quotes

    • Mikey: Gonard, you're not evil! Gonard: Thanks. I've been using a new deodorant.

    • Gonard: You're good, Kappa Mikey. Real good.
      Mikey: The best.
      Guano: Cut? (excited) Cut! That's a wrap, people!
      (crew cheers)
      Mitsuki: Mikey, that was amazing.
      Lily: Yeah, for once you didn't destroy the whole set.
      Mikey: Ain't no thing but a sumo ring. (tips over a camera and chaos quickly ensues) Sorry.
      Guano: You know what, who cares? We're done for the season!

  • Notes

    • Mikey and Mitsuki share a breif kiss under the mistletoe.

    • I'm appalled that no one added this:~
      throughout the episode, it is slowly revealed that Ozu lost his son long ago. Finally, at the end of the episode, we find out that Guano is truly Ozu's son, not only solving the mystery of Ozu, but also the mystery of Guano.

    • There is only one LilyMu scene in this episode, since the cast finished the scene perfectly in the first take.

    • This marks the first time an episode didn't end with a LilyMu segment and the first time a segement went by perfect without Mikey destroying the set.

    • This episode first aired as part of Nickelodeon's "Ha-Ha Holidays" segment in December 2006.

  • Allusions

    • Mikey said he would like metal wings. This could be a reference to Archangel of the X-Men, who had feathered wings, then they got replaced with metal ones by Apocolypes.

    • What happens to Mikey in this episode is a parody of Frank Capra's 1946 classic film "It's A Wonderful Life". About a man named George Bailey who wishes that he had never been born, and then gets to see what the world would have been like without him.

    • Mitsuki's alternate situation (living in a delusional state alone in a mansion) is an allusion to the 1950 feature film Sunset Boulevard, about a former silent film star who slips into madness after fading into obscurity.

    • Ozu's plot to wreck the cast's Christmas Party was similar to How The Grinch Stole Christmas by Dr. Seuss.

    • The title and what happens to Ozu is a reference to the movie "A Christmas Carol" about Scrooge being visited by the ghosts of Christmas past, present, and future.
