The Santa Clause 3: The Escape Clause (2006) Poster

Trivia

This is the only "Santa Clause" movie where Santa's head elf Bernard doesn't make an appearance. David Krumboltiz wasn't available since he his NumBers schedule conflicted with the filming This leaves the returning character Curtis the new head elf.
The scrolling ticker sign in the toy factory reads "378 Years without an accident".
When Santa and Lucy are visiting Santa's hall of snow globes for the first time, you can see (on the right side of the frame just when they are leaving) the head of director Michael Lembeck in one of the flying snow globes.
Peter Boyle played Mr. Whittle, Scott Calvin's supervisor in the first movie, then was recast as Father Time in the latter movies.
Spencer Breslin's sister Abigail Breslin appears as Trish, one of the elf students in Mrs. Claus's class.
Despite Bernard's non-appearance in the film, the novelization uses his character.
The movie wasn't released on DVD until a year after it pulled from theaters.
The "Red Deer" energy drink vending machines are not only a Santa-related parody on the well-known soft drink brand, but they also are a tongue-in-cheek reference to Rudolph's red nose. During the first part of the movie, the North Pole is disguised as "Canada". There is a city called Red Deer in Alberta, Canada.
This is Tim Allen's and Martin Short's second time in a film together. They previously co-starred in Disney's Jungle 2 Jungle (1997), which was directed by John Pasquin, the director of the original The Santa Clause (1994).

The answer to Mrs./Teacher Claus's math question is 3 hours; an object moving in one direction at 20mph would take 3 hours to travel 60 miles, and another object moving in the opposite direction at 50mph would take three hours to travel 150 miles. 60+150=210.

Jack Frost's musical number "North Pole, North Pole" is a parody of Frank Sinatra's "New York, New York". The lyrics are as follows:

Start spreading the news, by jet or by sleigh You wanna be a part of it, North Pole, North Pole You snooze and you lose, so come here to play Here at the very heart of it, North Pole North Pole Come see the snowman, up where no man's without a treat And watch this king of the chill --- HA! --- turn up the heat Those summertime blues are melting away Although it's 55 below at Polar North You'll zip your parka tight Sugar plum trees late at night It's all for you, North Pole, North Pole. Start spreading the news, by jet or by sleigh You wanna be a part of it, North Pole, North Pole You snooze and you lose, so come here to play Here at the very heart of it, North Pole, North Pole You'll wanna wake up in the resort that never sleeps And watch this king of the chill, inventive control, doing his thing at the top of the pole Those summertime blues are melting away Although it's 55 below at Polar North If you can make it here, the world's all Christmas cheer Holiday gold, North Pole, North Pole.

This is the 1st time Alan Arkin and Abigail Breslin appear in the same film (even though they share no screen time together). They would more notably appear in Little Miss Sunshine for which Breslin was nominated for an Academy Award that same year.

Jack Frost's discovery of the closet filled with cans of beans is a triple joke: (1) The closet is "full of beans", just like Santa is, (2) Santa's being "full of beans" from eating so many cans of them is a reference to the common saying, "That jolly old guy is still full of beans" (still peppy and lively, just as Santa Claus is in this movie), and (3) The "full of beans" saying fits perfectly with Comet's "lively" flatulence problem.
