* AnimationBump: As infamously stated, the episode was extremely erratic in terms of animation quality, largely due to the exported studio doing a poor job and the worst scenes being ordered to be redone. Even the style of the show is not quite perfected yet (certain shots such as that of Ms Botz's TranquilFury threat towards Bart are done with unusual fluidity and rubbery-ness than ever seen in the series). ** One could argue that the rubbery-ness (animated by animation master Dan Haskett) [[TropesAreNotBad looks more creative and fluid]] than the overall conservative animation from the series later on.

Animation quality is subjective. So I changed "worse" to "distorted". One could argue that the earlier animation looks much better than the final episode because it's much more fluidly animated with squash and stretch.

* OffModel: Scenes from the original version of the episode look much worse than the reanimated scenes (the original version can be found as a special feature on the season one DVD set for the show). The sad part is that the final product is considered the ''best'' that they can do.

* DisproportionateRetribution: The original script (and deleted scenes) had Marge start the day optimistic and with expectations of a cheery, friendly morning with her family, and then calls a hotline after receiving slightly unaffectionate behavior from Homer and the kids. The final episode fixes this by depicting Marge as clearly haggard and downbeat, implying she had been through this for quite a while already.
