Trivia Edit

  • In the cast credits, during the scene in which Burns Manor is destroyed, the credit to Denise Sirkot is presented as an App Icon, which resembles The Simpsons: Tapped Out's.

Goofs Edit

  • Freaks, No Geeks was supposed to take place in 1932 but when Homer tells the kids his story it's 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 died. He must've faked his death at the time.
