** A registered nurse is on hand for those who die of shock from seeing "The Bloodening". This mirrors ''Film/TheScreamingSkull'', which includes free burial services for anyone who dies of shock from watching the movie.

* TookALevelInJerkass: The adults reveled in the curfew more than any adult ever should. Even Marge who is one of the nicer Simpsons made a few jokes. When the kids get even, [[NeverMyFault the adults act as if they did nothing wrong and that the kids are to blame.]] Even the song is needlessly cruel with Homer singing that Bart and Lisa were accidents because Marge forgot her pill ([[WhatTheHellHero Marge doesn't even shout at him or correct him she just murmurs and gives a guilty smile to the other adults which is out of character as she will tear the world to shreds if her children are harmed in some way either emotionally or physically)]] while Moe sang about how the all kids should be "drowned like cats".

* KarmaHoudini: Although everyone in town who is not elderly end up being smacked with a curfew (which is more of a blanket punishment), Homer and his idiotic gang are never directly punished or even called out on their drunken behavior which set all the episode's events in motion.

** Chief Wiggum in particular took a nastier edge beginning in this episode, with him [[ImplacableMan going above and beyond what was necessary to punish the children of Springfield]] and to make sure [[ScrewTheRulesIMakeThem his rules were enforced by all means (at the expense of more pressing crimes in the city.)]] Worse still, he went from being a dim-witted, corrupt but still likable rival of Mayor Quimby to a rogue, irritating jackass who made certain citizens' lives crap just because he could, evidence by his unnecessarily gloating how stupid children are and how [[FamilyUnfriendlyAesop "Adults always win!"]][[note]]Which could also be viewed as an unintentional TakeThat to the many young viewers the show had/have, even if the show [[AnimationAgeGhetto isn't necessarily meant for children.]][[/note]]

* ArtisticLicense: The child curfew law that Chief Wiggum enforces is nowhere close to how most cities enforce similar child curfew laws. For starters, these laws usually state when a child can't be out at night without adult supervision (as kids do tend to be out late to attend sporting events, movie screenings, and other activities), not when a kid must be at home. Second, most cities curfew time is usually a set time (i.e. 9:00PM), not as soon as the sun sets (and even if the time based on when the sun sets, the curfew starts at least ''an hour after'' it sets).
