* TheOtherDarrin: Akira from [[Recap/TheSimpsonsS2E11OneFishTwoFishBlowfishBlueFish "One Fish, Two Fish, Blowfish, Blue Fish"]] returns, OffModel: ''Like you wouldn't believe.'' (though compared to the disaster that was "Some Enchanted Evening", this one wasn't too bad). This happened because the episode was farmed out to a "company that no one had ever heard of; it was people that had just recently gotten opposable thumbs". Mike Reiss had said he will always remember the episode "that came back animated with a thousand mistakes in it and was just a complete and utter mess." They had attempted to clean up as much as possible, but is now voiced by Creator/HankAzaria instead of Creator/GeorgeTakei.errors still made it through.
