Did You Know?
The back cover of the DVD release contains a depiction of the principal cast as Peanuts-style caricatures on stage, similar to the first rehearsal sequence in A Charlie Brown Christmas
(1965). Some of the more obvious references include John Legend
sitting at a piano like Schroeder, Willie Nelson
being surrounded by fumes like Pigpen, and Jon Stewart
carrying (and dragging) a blanket like Linus. Less obvious is Leslie Feist
being posed in a dance similar to that of one of the minor Peanuts characters. See more
Oh, look. We're under the mistletoe. Well, this is awkward.
The DVD is entirely missing one televised part. Comedy Central puts the credits on split screen, and while the DVD just continues the full-screen credits with music, the premiere has a coda with Elvis Costello helping Stephen finish his "Jingle Bells" parody and supplying the missing line "fighting crime with toys", and then Stephen going to put some coffee on, before cutting to split screen ads. This is not included as one of the alternate endings, or anywhere else on the DVD. In addition, the DVD is missing the commercial/sponsor (Buff your jingle bells) parody that was shown on TV.
