Crocodile Dundee (1986) is a comedy film starring Paul Hogan and directed by Peter Faiman. The plot revolves around an Australian man who is used to survive in the wilderness, traveling to New York where he is confronted modern suburban and city life.


In the episode Boy-Scoutz 'n the Hood Moe Szyslak and Hans Moleman have a knife fight on the street. Hans Moleman, unimpressed by Moe's knife says: "You call that a knife? This is a knife!" and draws a knife so large that it causes him to trip over. This scene is a parody of the most famous scene from "Crocodile Dundee" where Crocodile Dundee is threatened by some robbers with a switchblade and says: "You call that a knife? This is a knife", while drawing a large Bowie knife. The robbers flee in panic as a result.

In the episode Bart vs. Australia the US Department of State shows The Simpsons a slide show where he explains that back in the 1980s Australian culture was rather popular in the US. One of the pictures he shows is Paul Hogan in his Crocodile Dundee outfit. Later in the episode the knife scene from the film is spoofed again, when an Australian tells Bart: "You call that a knife? THIS is a knife", while he shows him a spoon. Bart corrects the man' s statement whereupon he replies: "All right, all right. You win. I see you played knifey-spooney before."
