  • This episode marks the second time Homer was cast to be a Marvel Comics character (which also was a beast-like character); the first time was in "I Am Furious (Yellow)", where he lost his temper and temporarily acted as The Incredible Hulk.
  • Referring to the remark about Homer talking about the previous episode, this also sort of happens in "Treehouse of Horror XII," where the Leprechaun from the first story, "Hex and the City", is seen on Bart's back in the "Wiz Kids" segment.
  • The scene where Professor Frink kicks his father in the crotch is similar to the second Scooby-Doo movie, where Velma kicks the Black Knight ghost in the crotch, saying it was his "weak spot". The film was released 4 months after the episode aired.
  • Skinner, Nelson and Homer all wear briefs in "Stop the World, I Want to Goof Off", not boxers.
  • When Lisa uses the stopwatch at the end of "Stop the World, I Want to Goof Off", the things that suddenly happen to the other members of the family are:
    • The upper portion of their bodies become rockets and zoom around.
    • They turn into bobbleheads.
    • They turn into people from sitcom.(Maggie resemble Baby Gerald.)
    • They turn into TV Guide covers.
    • They turn into the Fantastic Four.
    • They return to normal, but are playing with hula-hoops.
  • The last time Bart made some appear to pick their nose occurred in "Bart the Lover".
  • The final Halloween special where a Simpson repeatedly alters the universe until stopping on a close enough universe was "Treehouse of Horror V".

Cultural ReferencesEdit

Reaper MadnessEdit

  • When Homer is going down to get some better seats at the game, everyone he touches dies. However, a man blocks Homer from touching his forehead he survives.

  • At the begining of the segment Professor Frink states that his father no longer has a penis. However later on in the segment Professor Frink kicks him in the "balls" (penis), it is never mentioned that Professor Frink's father had gotten a penis in some way, this however could be just a simple mistake.

Stop the World, I Want to Goof OffEdit

  • When the Simpsons are hula-hooping, Bart moves from the floor to his bed.
  • When Lisa uses the stopwatch at the end Bart changes back from his 25 year old self back to his 10 year old self without explanation.
