En la secuencia de introducción el Sr. Burns aparece imitando a Ebenezer Scrooge y Smithers a Jacob Marley, personajes de la novela Cuento de Navidad

.En una escena en la que Homer imagina un futuro sin miel, un pequeño robot verde parecido a WALL-E le da una botella de miel y luego transforma a Homer en un cubo.

El equipo de basquetbol del texano rico, los "Austin Celtics", tienen el mismo logo que los Boston Celtics.

Algunos millonarios que figuran dentro del episodio son Bill Gates, Richard James, Rupert Murdoch y Mark Zuckerberg.

En el encuentro de multimillonarios se puede ver a varias personas jugando Quidditch, deporte ficticio de la saga Harry Potter.

Aparentemente, el señor Burns ignora por completo la existencia de la Primera Guerra Mundial, ya que canta el himno del Imperio austrohúngaro (a pesar de que ha sido mostrado en varias ocasiones combatiendo en la Segunda Guerra Mundial).

Smithers hace mención de diversos sucesos en el mundo mientras se lo cuenta a Burns como la Primera Guerra Mundial, la Segunda Guerra Mundial, la Guerra fría, la caída del comunismo, el nuevo status en Europa y la creación de la Unión Europea.

Cultural references

In the introductory sequence Mr. Burns appears imitating Ebenezer Scrooge and Smithers to Jacob Marley, characters from the novel Christmas Tale

In a scene in which Homer imagines a future without honey, a small green robot similar to WALL-E gives him a bottle of honey and then transforms Homer into a cube.

The basketball team of the rich Texan, the "Austin Celtics", have the same logo as the Boston Celtics.

Some millionaires listed within the episode are Bill Gates, Richard James, Rupert Murdoch and Mark Zuckerberg.

In the meeting of billionaires you can see several people playing Quidditch, fictional sport of the Harry Potter saga.

Apparently, Mr. Burns completely ignores the existence of the First World War, as he sings the anthem of the Austro-Hungarian Empire (although he has been shown on several occasions fighting in World War II).

Smithers makes mention of various events in the world as he tells Burns as the First World War, the Second World War, the Cold War, the fall of communism, the new status in Europe and the creation of the European Union.
