* FirstAppearance: First episode featuring Comic Book Guy (back before [[Recap/TheSimpsonsS8E14TheItchyAndScratchyAndPoochieShow he was an]] AudienceSurrogate [[Recap/TheSimpsonsS8E14TheItchyAndScratchyAndPoochieShow for angry nerds]], before [[Recap/TheSimpsonsS16E8HomerAndNedsHailMaryPass his real name of Jeff Albertson was revealed]], and before [[Recap/TheSimpsonsS25E10MarriedToTheBlob he married a Japanese manga artist]], he was just a snooty comic book geek who talked down to his customers and often sold crappy and overpriced comics and toys to kids who were dumb enough to fork over the cash for them).



* WhatCouldHaveBeen: According to DVD commentary, the third act originally had Bart rally a union of kids who were sick of doing chores for minimum pay, but the writers thought this detracted from the original story and banged out a subtle ''Treasure of the Sierra Madre'' parody.
** In hindsight, later episodes would often detract from the first part of many episodes.
