* OutOfOrder: The episode was originally designed as the pilot (hence the opening breakfast scene introducing each family member and the {{couch gag}} not being established) but ended up as the season finale after the entire thing had to be re-animated several times. This also explains why the opening credit sequence has no CouchGag, but ends with the family merely taking their seats on the couch and smiling as they watch TV. The original intent was that the pilot would play this scene straight, while every subsequent episode would subvert it.

Added DiffLines:

* ContinuityNod: When she calls Dr. Monroe, Marge says she's 34 years old, and when Ms. Botz raids the Simpsons' homemade pickled beets, Bart attempts to drop a bowling ball with "Homer" engraved on it. Both are elements from "[[Recap/TheSimpsonss1E9LifeOnTheFastLine Life On The Fast Lane]]" (Marge had her 34th birthday in that episode, and Homer gave her that bowling ball as a present), which of course weren't in the original cut of this one.

* KarmaHoudini: Homer frees Ms. Botz, who gets away seconds before Bart returns with the cops. In the "[[Recap/TheSimpsonsS8E8HurricaneNeddy Hurricane Neddy]]" episode, Ms. Botz is seen in a mental hospital cell. Maybe they finally caught her and she copped an insanity plea?

* AnimationBump: 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). Though 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.

* MisBlamed: James L. Brooks shouldn't have blamed Klasky-Csupo on the animation errors in the original (When he did, Gabor Csupo indirectly retorted WhoWritesThisCrap on the errors). He should've blamed AKOM, the overseas animators on this episode.
