* In "Bart to the Future," Lisa has become President and comments that she's the first "straight female President of the United States"; later on, after a scandal comes up, Lenny remarks "Don't blame me, I voted for Chastity Bono!" This whole train of thought either becomes hilarious, [[HarsherInHindsight harsh]], or [[UnintentionalPeriodPiece very dated]] now that [[{{Transsexual}} Chastity Bono has become Chaz Bono]].
** The episode also states that Creator/DonaldTrump was the president before Lisa. Trump would be elected the 46th president in 2016.

* In the episode with the ''Radioactive Man'' movie, the director tells his crew that he wants to stay as far away from the campy 1970s version of ''Radioactive Man'' (which is similar to the campy 1960s ''Batman'' with Creator/AdamWest and Burt Ward as Batman and Robin, even though the only TV version of ''Radioactive Man'' that aired was the 1950s serial that shamelessly plugged Laramie Cigarettes[[note]]Similar to the 1960s ads for ''WesternAnimation/TheFlintstones'' that plugged Winston Cigarettes, back when advertising cigarettes on TV was legal[[/note]], though considering how campy the 1970s version was, it was probably branded an OldShame, canceled after a season [or after the episode with The Scoutmaster], and never seen on TV again). Two years later, we got ''Film/BatmanAndRobin'', which was derided for being too campy for its own good.

** Part 1 features a TakeThat against Comedy Central, where some of the Springfieldians are horrified at how Smithers has been reduced to watching it after Mr. Burns previously fired him. Sister series ''WesternAnimation/{{Futurama}}'' eventually wound up [[ChannelHop moving]] to the channel after it was {{Uncancelled}}. It's also doubly fitting for fans of the Comedy Central seasons who felt the Comedy Central episodes of ''Futurama'' were inferior to the FOX episodes or were upset that Comedy Central canceled ''Futurama'' the same way FOX did.

* In "Bonfire of the Manatees", Homer watches a football game between the Denver Broncos and the Seattle Seahawks. They would compete against each other in Super Bowl XLVIII
* In the fifth and eighth seasons, we saw that Flanders was a kid in the 1950s or early 60s and his parents were beatniks, thus putting him around his late 30s or early 40s in age. In the season 10 episode "Viva Ned Flanders" [[NegativeContinuity it's revealed he's really 60 years old.]] The show is still on in the 2010s, thus making Flanders born in the 1950s and the jokes in those episodes are still relevant and throwing the NegativeContinuity out the window.
