* ArtisticLicenseReligion: Krusty is told he is not a Jewish man because he never had a Bar Mitzvah. At the age of 13, a Jewish male is expected to have been educated enough to be personally responsible for following the commandments. A Bar Mitzvah is a celebration of this event, not a ceremony where they bestow manhood or Judaism on you, a la a baptism. In fact, Jews who never had a Bar Mitzvah is not even a rare occurrence; many less religious Jews forgo them. Also, many Jews throughout the 20th century went without them because of UsefulNotes/WorldWarI and especially UsefulNotes/WorldWarII.
** Even having a Bar Mitzvah as an adult is not a rare or unusual occurrence. Many Jews who couldn't have them during wartime had them years or even decades later. A man in Israel could not have his Bar Mitzvah because his family was fighting in WWI, so he had it as an adult...100 years later, at the age of 113.
