Added DiffLines:

* WeatherDissonance: Despite taking place in February, there are no signs of winter anywhere (no snow, no bare trees, etc.) and appears to already be spring. In fact, Lisa lampshades this when introducing a scene from this episode as a flashback in Season 6's "[[Recap/TheSimpsonsS6E3AnotherSimpsonsClipShow Another Simpsons Clip Show]]."

** ''[[Series/TheTonightShow The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson]]'': Krusty shows clips of "classic" episodes, including an incarnation of the show suggesting that he once hosted a ''Tonight Show'' knockoff. The clip shown  a urine monkey relieving itself on Krusty's head, while a Joan Embry-type zoologist is a guest  is Springfield's version of a classic incident involving Carson and Embry's marmoset. The clip of Sideshow Mel "whacked out on wowy sauce" is a reference to a clip of Ed McMahon sitting and talking with Johnny at the desk and being obviously drunk- although Ed's drunkenness was more subtle and not at all hostile, the way Mel's is.

* EarlyInstallmentWeirdness: Ralph Wiggum is shown to be just a little dim-witted and awkward, but not unrealistically so, especially for an 8-year old. He is shown to have decent emotional awareness and rather impressive acting talent (see HiddenDepths below). In later episodes, however, Ralph is portrayed as oblivious and mentally handicapped to the point where he has no survival skills or emotional depth, and is just there to be a walking punchline. While some later episodes like [[Recap/TheSimpsonsS9E18ThisLittleWiggy This Little Wiggy]] portray Ralph as more relatable and intelligent, almost all modern viewers today see him only as a source of extremely quotable lines that are stupid for the sake of being stupid.
