The phrase "Jiminy Cricket" was used in common slang as a euphemism for "Jesus Christ" (in context of a "cuss" word) since the 1920s. The expression is spoken in movies like The Brave Little Tailor (1938) and The Wizard of Oz (1939). Pinocchio (1940) had a character named Jiminy Cricket who was named after the expression, not the other way around.
The closing credits are presented as text typed in a scrapbook, with photographs and mementos taped onto the pages.
