Allusions

  • Die Hard - This episode is a parody of the 1988 film.
    • The episode centers around Unikitty stopping a Christmastime heist in a high-rise building.
    • Mirroring Hans Gruber's computer hacker Theo, Brock mentions that he was brought along "for his charming personality".
    • Unikitty crawls through a vent to escape Master Frown, complaining "Come to the North Pole! Let's make some toys, have some laughs!"
    • Unikitty leaves defeated guards in an elevator with a note to Master Frown, reminiscent of Die Hard's scene with Tony in the elevator.
    • In a cutaway, Puppycorn is seen dancing to hip-hop music in a car with a large stuffed bear on the seat next to him, a la John McClane's limo driver Argyle.
    • Master Frown disguises his voice with a german accent when talking to Unikitty over a walkie-talkie.
    • An electric guitar version of Beethoven's "Ode to Joy" plays when Brock open's the vault, as it does in numerous moments throughout the Die Hard Franchise.
    • Master Frown attacks Unikitty on the roof of Santa's tower with a helicopter.
    • Master Frown falls backwards and in slow motion from the roof of Santa's tower.
  • Home Alone - The music playing at the beginning when Master Frown starts his story, and at the end when Santa shows up, bears a resemblance to the music from the 1990 film 'Home Alone', composed by John Williams.
