In popular culture

  • In The Simpsons episode "Treehouse of Horrors III," when Bart and Lisa go to the cemetery, the camera moves past tombstones reading Fish Police, Capitol Critters, and Family Dog, all of which were created as competition to The Simpsons, but all they succeeded in doing was failing spectacularly.
