Trivia Edit

  • This is the last time the prototype theme music from the Season 2 opening titles is played. This is also the last time that Bart's chalkboard gag has its original high color saturation.
  • The Jerky Hut is misspelled as The Perky Hut in this episode.
  • A scene of The Itchy & Scratchy Show: Burning Love was used from the episode and they also show closing credits.
  • This is also aired on BBC One.
  • This is also the first episode that focuses on Ned Flanders.
  • This is the first of a very few episodes (excluding the non-canon "THOH's specials) showing Homer technically having an antagonistic role as he wishes The Leftorium to be a failure and go out of business, and then (initially) show no remorse for his actions, although he then does so.

References Edit

  • The final scene in this episode is a nod to the final scene in the film It's a Wonderful Life.
  • The title is a parody of the patriotic poem In Flanders Fields.
  • The song 'Put On a Happy Face' from the musical Bye Bye Birdie appears twice. Sung by Maude, Rod and Todd Flanders in the car and later by everyone in the Leftorium when the place becomes a success.

GoofsEdit

  • When Bart was wearing the shirt that said Maude loves Ned, it instead said Maude loves Nel.
