Cultural References Edit

  • The title of this episode is a pun with the words "Simpson" and "Improvised".
  • In the season 8 episode "The Itchy & Scratchy & Poochie Show", June Bellamy says "very few cartoons are broadcast live". Ironically, 19 seasons later, "Simprovised" would be broadcast live.
  • Near the end of the West Coast version of the episode, Homer states that, "To prove that we're live, the Texas Rangers beat the Toronto Blue Jays on a technical knock out." Hours before the episode aired, Rangers second baseman, Rougned Odor punched Blue Jays right fielder Jose Bautista in the face during the eighth inning of the game.
  • When Homer's "mind explodes with premises", the woman siting on the chair in the "Philosophy: Objectivism" section is Ayn Rand, who was the creator of the philosophy Objectivism.

Trivia Edit

  • The Live segment pre-animated gags:
    • Lisa holds a sign saying "We parked on Bill O'Reilly's spot".
    • Nelson holds Martin by his underwear like an yo-yo.

    • Bender holds a sign reading "Bring back Futurama (again)".
    • Bart knocks down the Fox Studios Secret Bunker walls, revealing it's on The Simpsons living room.
  • Ralph's treehouse appeared on the September issue of the Treehouse Beautiful magazine. This indicates that the begining of the episode takes place in September. This also indicates that Ralph's birthday is in, or at least close to September.

Goofs Edit
