  • Allusions

    • St. Cloud:
      When Santa's cloud castle is seen, Crow asks, 'So Mike, is this St. Cloud?' It refers to a city in Minnesota.

    • Donny and Marie:
      Mike says "When are Donny and Marie coming through the door?" The Osmonds family singing group was known for being syrupy-sweet "nice", especially the youngest two siblings: Donny and Marie Osmond. They even had their own variety show (and a later talk show after MST3k stopped airing).

    • More popular than Jesus:
      Crow says "I'm more popular than Jesus!", making reference to the infamous statement by Beatle John Lennon that the Beatles were more popular than Jesus.
