* A scene in the 1999 episode "Monty Can't Buy Me Love" depicting billionaire Arthur Fortune knocking out Muhammad Ali was already in rather bad taste, given that Ali was by then quite significantly crippled by Parkinson's disease (this was just a few years after his emotional, shaky lighting of the 1996 Olympic torch). The gag became even more uncomfortable in the years that followed, as Ali became ever-more frail before eventually dying from septic shock on June 3, 2016.

* In "Brother's Little Helper", then-single season home run record holder Mark [=McGuire=] showed up when Major League Baseball was found to be using spy satellites to collect marketing data on Springfielders. His offer to tell everyone the "terrifying truth"[[labelnote:*]]or hit a few dingers[[/labelnote]] is now incredibly awkward seeing as how he and other major hitters of that era were all using various steroids to improve their performance. It's also poignant seeing as how at the time the fans were in fact content to see him "hit a few dingers".
