* Parodied on ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons'' episode "Burns' Heir"[[note]] (the season five episode where Mr. Burns makes Bart Simpson his heir after Bart gets rejected from his audition and takes out his anger by vandalizing Mr. Burns' property)[[/note]] where Mr. Burns hires fake Americans to play the Simpsons family and Burns got the famously Cockney MichaelCaine (voiced by Dan Castallaneta) to play Homer (though that's more of a joke on Caine taking on roles [[MoneyDearBoy just to get paid]]) while Lisa is voiced by a bald male midget from Estonia (and is the same one that would later be seen on the episode "Radioactive Man" as Milhouse's stunt double).
