* ShoutOut: The beginning parodies the Wile E Coyote and Road Runner cartoons.
* WhatDoYouMeanItsNotForKids: InUniverse; one of the "hottest R-rated movies Europe has to offer" at Rancho Relaxo is ''The Happy Little Elves Meet Fuzzy Snuggleduck''. For those who don't remember the early days of ''The Simpsons'' [[note]]("early" as in "back when it was a sketch on ''The Tracy Ullman Show'' and back during the first season when the animation was cruddy, the episodes focused on Bart and Lisa, and the pacing was slow)[[/note]], ''The Happy Little Elves'' was [[TastesLikeDiabetes an overly-cutesy kids' show]] (kind of like ''The Smurfs'') that Lisa and Maggie loved (but Bart hated, because he was into ''The Itchy and Scratchy Show''). The joke here is either a TakeThat to people who think cartoons are for kids (which was also something ''The Simpsons'' itself had to struggle with during its early years) or a reference to how most foreign movies and TV shows (particularly in Europe) are more lenient with risqué content than America is.
