  • Allusions

    • Spider-Man (1967):

      The plot is very reminiscent of the Spider-Man (1967) short "Trouble With Snow", which also involved a giant snowman built with chemically-tainted snow that came to life and fed on electricity.

    • Army of Darkness:

      In this episode, Kim destroys a crowd of snowmen with a snowplow. This is a reference to the Army of Darkness where in one scene, the living dead were crushed by a giant fan installed on a car.

    • Mrs. Dr. Possible: It's over...

      The leading actresses in Capcom's Resident Evil zombie game series always saying this at the seeming end-of-story. And in this situation, it becames a routine that something big and surprising is going to happen, just like the show itself.

    • Day of the Dead:

      The episode's title, "Day of the Snowmen" is a reference to George A. Romero's classic zombie movie, "Day of the Dead".

    • Dawn of the Dead:

      When one of the Snowmen throws itself on the Plower's windshield, it's reminiscent of a scene in Dawn of the Dead.

    • Mall Attack:

      Among the many references to George A. Romero's Night of the Living Dead movie series, one of the main attacks takes place in a mall, much like Dawn of the Dead.

    • Destroying the heads:

      One of the episode's subtler nods that isn't really emphasized, much like Romero's Living Dead series, the only way to "kill" the zombie snowmen is by destroying the head. (You'll notice that when Kim "kills" the first snowman during the first attacks she destroys the middle and the snowmen rebuild themselves. However, in all later attacks Kim destroys the snowmen's heads and they do not rebuild themselves)

    • Ron: They don't seem like jolly, happy souls...

      References the popular holiday song "Frosty the Snowman", which makes the opposite claim of its title character.

    • Calvin & Hobbes:

      The snowmen monsters are similar to the ones found in a series of Calvin & Hobbes comic strips where Calvin creates "mutant snowmen". The strips are reprinted in a compilation titled "Attack Of The Deranged Mutant Killer Snow Goons"

    • Ghostbusters:

      The whole scene with the giant snowman is a refernce to Ghostbusters, from Jim and Tim's heat rays you the snowman itself (compare to giant marshmallow man in Ghostbusters).

    • Ron: Lake Wannaweep. Every time I think I'm out, she draws me back in.

      A riff on an Al Pacino line from The Godfather: Part III: "Just when I thought I was out, they pull me back in."

    • The Ten Plagues of Egypt:

      The raining of frogs is a reference to the Ten Plagues of Egypt. The third plague was the raining of frogs.

    • Ghostbusters:

      Jim and Tim's Snowclearing Device is very similar to the proton packs used in Ghostbusters to hold ghosts at bay in order for them to be captured.
