Cultural referencesEdit

MillhouseTeletubies
  • Milhouse is seen watching the children's TV show (right) Teletubbies before switching to the movie commercial (though it's 7 at night when the horror movie commercial was on, so unless Milhouse had a Teletubbies video in the VCR or he was watching it on cable, there's no way he could have seen it, as Teletubbies doesn't come on primetime).
  • The Bloodening is based on the horror films Children of the Corn and Village of the Damned.
  • The scene where the kids take the different electronics through the fence parodies scenes from Our Gang, including Milhouse dressed as Alfalfa.
  • The song near the end of the episode parodies the song "Kids" from the musical Bye Bye Birdie.
  • Otto holding up the stereo above holding is similar to the scene in the film Say Anything... where Lloyd Dobler tries the same thing to win back Diane Court.
  • One of the sitcoms Homer and Marge watches is called Talk to the Hand, starring David Faustino. David Faustino is best known as the smart, yet perpetually dateless son, Bud Bundy, on the FOX sitcom Married...With Children.
  • In The Gracie Films logo after a woman says "Shh!" the Old Jewish man shouts "Don't tell me to shush, you stupid lady!"
  • In the scene where Lisa is flipping through radio stations, the line "A date which will live in infamy." from President Franklin D. Roosevelt's Infamy Speech given on December 8, 1941 can be heard.
  • Homer, Lenny, Carl and Barney sing the song "We Are the Champions" by Queen on the school's locker room, but they mistake the lyrics and start singing "We Will Rock You", also by Queen.

GoofsEdit

  • When Homer goes to Moe's and and sees the game on TV, Lenny is wearing a green shirt with purple suspenders, but is then seen wearing the opposite in the next frame.
  • Nelson is seen complaining about the curfew, despite avoiding it by stealing Dr. Hibbert's ID. Besides, according to most other episodes, he is older than he looks.
  • When Skinner is at the drive in Edna is in the passenger seat. When Agnes Skinner and Superintendent Chalmers are revealed though, Edna is nowhere to be seen.
  • When Wendell is among the kids seen inside the truck, his skin is a lot less pale than usual.
  • For some reason, Alison can be seen in place of Janey in the drive-though when Clancy Wiggum catches them, yet the viewer does not see her running from her home or any scene before this, a similar thing happens with one of the twins in place of her when Nelson pushes Milhouse through the hole in the fence.
    • Additionally, the arrangement of the kids sitting when they're watching the movie changes depending on the scene.
  • Jimbo and Dolph are seen among the adults driving/travelling to the billboard, but earlier they were arrested for breaking the curfew and during the "Kids" song, they are seen with the kids.
  • The curfew prohibited minors from being in public at all after dark but a curfew can only prohibit minors from being in public unaccompanied.
  • Most towns and cities have curfews so it is extremely unlikely that Springfield wouldn't already have one.
  • The curfew started after sunset but curfews don't start until late night.
  • A curfew banning everyone under 70 from being outside after sunset would never pass.
