Behind the scenes

  • Judy is absent in this short, just as she was in the previous short, although she appears in the series title card.
  • The characters are exaggerated even more than they were in the previous short, "Father & Son Day."
  • The Simpsons are referred to by Jane as "one of those cruddy, 20th century, yellow cartoons," after Elroy tells his parents "Don't have a cow, man!", which is one of Bart Simpson's catchphrases.
