PJ (to Gabe): Oh relax. I'm sure you're in the top 5.
PJ: Hey, mom. What you doing?

Amy (folding clothes): Welding.
PJ: Good, good. So, listen. I was thinking about what present to get for dad and I don't want to get him the same thing you did. What did you get him again?
Amy: Did your dad send you down here to find out what I got him?
PJ: I'm not prepared for any follow-up questions.
Amy: I'm not going to tell you what I got him.

Linda walks in
Bob: Oh, hey mom. How much did you hear?
Linda: I didn't hear a thing. I just wanted to tell you that I've decided to let Amy sing "Deck the Halls" this year.
Bob: Well. I'm glad somebody understands the true spirit of Christmas.
Linda: Instead, I'm gonna do an impression of a family member. Can you guess who?

Background Information

  • Bridgit Mendler and Shane Harper perform a cover of "My Song for You" at the talent show, which was originally performed by Demi Lovato and Joe Jonas during the Sonny With a Chance episode "A So Random Holiday Special" two years prior to the airing of this episode.
  • Teddy re-records her ending video diary twice. In the first edit she mentions being locked up in the Super Adventure Land jail before deciding not to mention it at all. In the second edit Linda asks if she can say "Good luck, Charlie" as she's never said it before. However she's cut off by Amy who says it then walks out saying "BA-BAM!". Finally Teddy rewinds the tape and simply says "Hey. You got your first picture with Santa. Good luck, Charlie."
  • Super Adventure Land renames itself for certain holidays. It's sometimes known as Super Christmas Land, Super Hanukkah Land; and Super Kwanzaa Land.
  • Sheriff Bradley is both sheriff and judge at Super Adventure Land.
  • Teddy said Super Adventure Land is called Super Christmas Land for the week they're in, and that last week was Super Hanukkah Land and next week is Super Kwanzaa Land. This could indicate that Hanukkah was all of last week (as well as one day before the week), and Kwanzaa is all of next week, placing Christmas on a Saturday.
  • This is the first time Super Adventure Land is seen since Make Room for Baby.

Production Information


  • During their duet of Deck the Halls, Linda supposedly stomps on Amy's foot, hurting her. This doesn't actually happen probably to avoid Leigh-Allyn Baker sustaining an actual injury.


  • This is the second Duncan family Christmas seen on the show. The first was the feature length film "Good Luck Charlie, It's Christmas!"
  • Linda Duncan makes her second appearance on the show.
  • Amy and Linda's dislike of each other is still apparent.
  • Spencer mentions how he and Teddy used to work at Super Adventure Land. It's alluded that they both no longer work there.
  • Teddy is once again jailed at Super Adventure Land by Sheriff Bradley. She previously tackled the mayor as she caught him committing theft.
