Just as Steinberg was speaking her last line, the tooth came flying out of her mouth.

When writing a letter to the Great Pumpkin, Linus states, "You must get discouraged because more people believe in Santa Claus than in you. Well, let's face it; Santa Claus has had more publicity, but being #2, perhaps you try harder." This is a reference to an advertising slogan for Avis Rent-a-Car that was well known in the 1960s.

This is the only special where Pig Pen is shown wearing glasses. You can see them when he is with the other kids at the Halloween party around the apple tub just before Lucy bobs for an apple.
