At one point, Bill, Tilly, Cricket and Nancy mimic repetitive dance moves from A Charlie Brown Christmas.
In Tilly's part, she pops out of the mailbox and scares the mailwoman, like how SpongeBob does in the SpongeBob SquarePants episode "Chocolate With Nuts".
Gramma's part is an offhand mention to A Christmas Carol.
The creepy elf on a bookshelf is a reference to Elf on the Shelf.
At the beginning of "Good Deeds are Good Indeed", Cricket swings on a lamppost like Gene Kelly from Singin' in the Rain.
The song "If I Can't Have Christmas" where Cricket goes naughty and pranks the town is reminiscent of the Grinch stealing Christmas in the Dr. Seuss book How the Grinch Stole Christmas! and its adaptations.
The scene where Cricket gets the idea to resort to his naughty pranks, it is reminiscent of the Grinch getting the idea to stop Christmas.
The episode title itself shares its name with a song by Barenaked Ladies used for the 2001 film adaptation.
In "No Christmas At All" when Cricket looks at a toy display through a window, the toy train on the far left bears an uncanny resemblance to Thomas the Tank Engine from the long-running Thomas and Friends.
When Cricket said "Cry Me A River" to the kid, is a reference to a common idiom as well as the 2002 song, sung by a pop singer, Justin Timberlake.
The robot pet Tilly holds during "The Best Part Of Christmas (reprise)" bears a strong resemblance to the electronic pet toy Furby.
