Actually, I've always liked this show [b]because[b/] Santa is portrayed as petty, ignorant, and flawed -- in other words, a real human, and not some sickly sweet saint.

As for other contemporary references, the Chief Elf quotes Charlie Brown ("Good grief!") and Lawrence Welk ("Ah one-a and a two-a").

Of course, the entire show is a thinly veiled reference to the Civil Rights movement...
