Also, Bart and Lisa's outfits resemble the ones that Sally and her unnamed brother wear and Maggie looks similar to Cindy Lou Who.
  • The mask the Fat in the Hat wears when blowing up city hall looks similar to Guy Fawkes' mask from the movie V for Vendetta.
  • At the end of the segment, the Fat in the Hat says not to let him be played by Mike Myers, a reference to the fact that Mike had played the title character in the live-action adaptation of The Cat in the Hat.
  • Dumbo: An elephant named Jumbo gives Moe a shower.
  • Dead and Shoulders is a parody of the film, The Thing with Two Heads, and the title is a parody of the shampoo brand, Head & Shoulders.
  • Freaks, No Geeks is a parody of the film, Freaks, and the title is a parody of the short lived show, Freaks and Geeks.
  • The scene of Rabbit ears and bigmouth is a parody of Futurama.
  • The last scene where Homer says "And that, kids, is how I met your mother" references the show, How I Met Your Mother, and its theme music plays over the credits. 
  • When Krusty is the funny man he says "Seriously folks, I really think we should stop this Hitler guy" and everyone laughs.



  • Freaks, No Geeks was supposed to take place in 1932 but when Homer tells the kids his story it is in the present time. Since this is non canon, he could have lived for 81 years after the incident but it says in the last article that he passed away. He must have faked his demise at the time.
  • In the sawmill scene during Dead and Shoulder segment, Bart and Lisa tongue's color palate change from red to dark brown.
