- The book Donald got for Christmas is entitled Oh, So?.
- The portrait of a dour-looking military duck, seen in the background of the second panel, was identified in Der Stammbaum der Ducks (1999) as Scrooge McDuck's great-great-grandfather. Although the 1999 Duck family tree had a different idea of where to place Seafoam McDuck, this would, as far as mainstream continuity is concerned, suggest that the portrait is one of a middle-aged Seafoam.
Behind the scenesEdit
