Trivia

  • In Episode 53, the news about the Avengers movie (from the top) is a reference to how every movie about the Avengers separately (Thor, Iron Man, Hulk, and Captain America) all show short scenes as sneak peeks for the Avengers movie, and the Hulk's animation looks similar to the one from Avenger Time.
  • In Episode 54, Alfred E. Neuman's title "Texty & I Know It" is a reference to LMFAO's song "Sexy & I Know It."
  • In Episode 57, the archers besides Princess Merida after the announcer announces that Disney and Pixar's Brave is summer's 59th movie with an archer in it are:
  • In Episode 64, the MADvent Calendar announcer said that Cartoon Network turned 20 years old, but is too young to stay up past 9:00 PM in the evening. This is a reference to [adult swim], the cable network that airs at 9:00 PM until 6:00 AM (8:00 PM until 5:00 AM Central time), that airs shows ranging from higher TV-PG to lower TV-MA. However, [adult swim] wasn't always one of Cartoon Network's programming blocks; it was introduced on September 2, 2001 as a former programming block before the channel itself was launched on March 25, 2005 as a cable network.
  • In Episode 67 and Episode 99, the MADvent Calendar announcer's voice was heard as a nocturnal vampire known as... Count Dracula!
  • In Episode 103, when the MADvent Calendar announcer said that history's most faithful comet returns to Earth, threatening to leave a crater in Cartoon Network's 8:30 PM timeslot, that must mean this is the final episode of MAD.
