* ValuesDissonance: Were this episode made today (2015), you can be damn well sure there would be more legal ramifications for the two wine merchants; they mistreated Bart, stole his items from his suitcase (including giving his hat to their donkey), used him for slave labour, barely fed him and gave him anywhere to sleep, and they fore-fed him anti-freeze, which they believed at the time to be enough to kill a person. If the Simpsons didn't agree to the exchange in the first place, it could be mistaken for a kidnapping.

** We only see two Frenchmen for most of the episode and they are both filthy, arrogant wine merchants. One of them wears a beret, has a moustache and smokes a cigarette. That being said, the police officer who helps Bart is actually a fairly nice man who couldn't help Bart at first because he doesn't speak or understand English (then helped him when Bart learned just enough French to tell the officer about the abuse and the wine tampering operating), even though French police officers in real life are just as condescending as the wine merchants who abused Bart, especially when it comes to dealing with foreigners.
