[edit] Enough references?

Usually, we require references in three toons for a page like this. Thoughts? Possibility of a third that I and the person who made the page both overlooked? --Jay o'Lantern (Haunt) 19:05, 27 December 2010 (UTC)

There's a reference in the commentary for modeling. cash money tc 19:08, 27 December 2010 (UTC)
I don't really see a reference to Rankin/Bass in the commentary of modeling.. all I really see is a reference to the song "Winter Wonderland", despite what the Fun Fact says. In this case, though, the two references might be interesting enough. Leaning toward keep. OptimisticFool 19:12, 27 December 2010 (UTC)
The reference in modeling is when Matt says Parson is a clergyman, and Mike says "I would assume so. He married Frosty". It's a reference to Frosty's Winter Wonderland where the children try to get a preacher named Parson Brown to marry Frosty and his snow wife. Jennifer 03:16, 30 December 2010 (UTC)
Oh, and I vote for keep as well, since there's three references now and one of the main characters actually dressed up as one of the Rankin/Bass characters. Jennifer 03:23, 30 December 2010 (UTC)
I think the issue of whether DVD commentary counts really needs to be addressed at some point; it feels really silly when we have a page with three DVD commentary references and a T-shirt. As for someone dressing as a Rankin/Bass character, that alone does not count as criteria for including a page, lest we make one for everything that someone has worn costumes for (and with eleven to twelve characters per year and eleven Halloween toons (counting Which Ween Costumes?), that's quite a few!) --Jay o'Lantern (Haunt) 05:00, 30 December 2010 (UTC)
I agree that not every character costume should get a page, but in this case though, Strong Mad and The King of Town were both dressed up as Rankin/Bass characters (I mistakenly only said one in my last comment), and there is a toon within a toon modeled directly after a Rankin/Bass cartoon (and I can't think of another time that's happened, so it's significant). So, there are three references (albeit two are in one cartoon) even without the DVD commentary (which I do personally feel should count in references, for reasons I said here). I personally think that's significant enough to count as a running gag. Jennifer 11:33, 30 December 2010 (UTC)
