Trivia: Clark Griswold in the attic watching old movies dressed in a woman's turban and gloves to keep warm is not only funny but a reference to the Norma Desmond character from "Sunset Boulevard", who watches her old films to remember her Hollywood glory days.

Continuity mistake: The first movie shows Santa slipping on the roof and kicking up a white snow blanket as he falls. The flashback in the third movie does not show the blanket being kicked up as Santa slips.

Continuity mistake: Charlie and Scott come across the empty Santa suit in the flashback to the first movie, and the body and all the limbs of the suit are flat in the snow. A shot from the unconscious Santa's right shoulder then shows his arm and gloved hand still upright and in position to wave "bye-bye" before he disappears.

Continuity mistake: In the flashback to the first "Santa Clause", Scott Calvin witnesses the old Santa disappear from the Santa suit, as indicated by the suit deflating. He did not witness it in the first movie.

Trivia: Austin Powers, when he is not spying, has a cover as a fashion photographer like '60's spoof spy Matt Helm (played by Dean Martin).

Trivia: The scene where Michael Caine and Mike Myers are speaking in cockney accents is reminiscent of a scene from "The Man Who would Be King" where Michael Caine's and Sean Connery are speaking in thick accents about a person they knew in the past. The story is somewhat hard to discern due to Caine's thick Cockney accent and Connery's Scottish accent.
