- Indie band The National recorded a version of Linda's "It's Thanksgiving for Everybody" song but the release was canceled in the wake of the terrorist attacks in Paris in November 2015.
- Gayle attempts to feed Mr. Business Pussy Fish, the brand of cat food that Andy and Ollie Pesto bring from home in "Synchronized Swimming."
- It is mentioned that Gayle is dating Mr. Frond. This foreshadows "The Cook, The Steve, The Gayle, & Her Lover" where it was revealed to the family that they were dating. This episode aired first despite having a higher production code because the show's slot was often taken over by NFL games during the NFL season and the holiday-themed episodes had priority to be aired in time for the respective holidays.

- Stores seen in this episode include; Some Strings Attached Guitar Repair, Some Like It Pop: Old Timey Soda Shop, and Big Girls Don't Dry Cleaners.
- When Gene and Louise are searching the refrigerator, it opens to the left rather than the right like in Christmas in the Car.
- When Gene says "I have scabies", the lid of the orange pot changes to a smaller lid similar to the yellow pot for the last frame of the shot. This appears to have been corrected in later and international airings.
- Bob and Gayle pass Some Like It Pop: Old Timey Soda Shop twice on their way to Bob's Burgers.
