    • NOTES (4)

      • This episodes Credits Gag is:

        Stop Watching These Credits
        And Go Buy Us A Really Nice Gift!

      • This episode is inspired by many different Christmas specials, but mainly It's a Wonderful Life. This is quite possibly the closest a childrens cartoon ever came to the movie (they didn't "conveniently forget" George Bailey's suicide attempt here).

      • This episode is an obvious homage to "It's A Wonderful Life."

      • Harvey's name probably came from the movie "Harvey", about a man who had an imaginary friend in the form of a 6-foot rabbit. Jimmy Stewart, who was the lead in "It's a Wonderful Life" also starred as the main character.

    • ALLUSIONS (2)

      • In addition to the main plot, several small references to It's a Wonderful Life are made throughout the episode: - God introduces Max as "the richest and meanest toon in Acme Acres", similar to Mr. Potter's introduction. Also, like Potter, Max spends most of the episode in a wheelchair. - When Gogo slides down the staircase, he knocks off a loose finniel. - In the cartoons that Babs (who looks and acts like Mary Bailey in the world without George) watches, Porky tells Petunia he's going to lasso the moon, and Pepe tries on a cologne labeled "Zuzu's Petals".

      • The chipmunk show that Plucky is reffering to is Chip and Dale Resuce Rangers.
