Professor Frink wasn't with Odysseus' crew when they were turned into pigs by Circe. He was last seen when they went to the Island of Sirens that his glasses were broken when he saw the Sirens and crying out loud "Save me from the ladies".
A deleted scene in the Odyssey segment featured the cyclops Polyphemus, portrayed by Jeffery Albertson and an extra scene with Patty and Selma as the Sirens where Patty's seashell bra tries to crawl away.
The title is a reference to the stories' copyright that have either expired or never was copyrighted to begin with. This means producers are allowed to create the stories with Simpson character without prior consent nor royalty fees. The only exception of the theme to the song Ghostbusters, however, it's not mentioned if any fees were paid.
The title "Do the Bard, Man" is an obvious amalgamation of one of William Shakespeare's famous titles, the Bard of Avon, and Bart Simpson's famous tagline, "Do the Bartman."
Glasses weren't invented during the time of Odyssey, yet Frink still has them.
On the British broadcaster Channel 4, the scene, where Laertes (Ralph) stabs himself with his sword, was cut, yet no editing was done to the scene of Ralph lying dead on the floor.
