Trivia

The word Tom Turk mutters while inside the snowman is "Quisling." This was the name of the Norwegian Prime Minister who sold out to the Nazis, paving the way toward a (relatively) bloodless invasion of his country. In return, he was granted preferential custody of his occupied nation, but his name would be synonymous with "traitor" and "Benedict Arnold" forever after. See more »
