Homer vs. Lisa and the 8th Commandment
The Flanders' doorbell plays the theme song from the 1960s claymation show , which was based on the hymn, Davey and Goliath A Mighty Fortress Is Our God.
The broadcaster who announces during the pre-fight coverage is the same man who announced Todd Flanders and Bart's golf showdown in " Dead Putting Society".
When introducing the family to their new cable Homer says they have "1600 hours of quality programming a day." A number that if divided by the hours in a day would equal 66.6 (recurring) channels, fitting for the theme of the episode.
Before the cable salesman comes into the house, Homer is watching the non-violent version of Itchy and Scratchy, referencing the episode " Itchy & Scratchy & Marge".
The blackboard gag refers to "The Bartman", a dance created by a Simpsons 1991 music video .
Do the Bartman This episode won the Best Animated Program award at the Emmys in 1991.
Though some Christian denominations do have the 8th commandment as "Thou shalt not steal," others (such as Roman Catholic and Lutheran) have "Thou Shalt Not Steal" as the seventh.
This is the first time Bart says a swear word that is rude and horrid.
"Top Hat Entertainment" may possibly reference the Playboy Bunny.
This is the first appearance of Troy McClure.
Bart shows interest in Hell even though he had actually been there three episodes back and hated it, however he may have forgotten it due to easy memory loss caused from watching television which he would mention in the 5th season premier.
The opening scene where Moses shatters tablets is similar to Charlton Heston in the film .
The Ten Commandments Homer jumping in the street to get the attention of the corrupt cable workman driving his van is based upon a scene in the film .
