Added DiffLines:

* EarlyInstallmentWeirdness: Superintendent Chalmers coming to the school is shown to be a very big deal, implying that such a thing rarely happens. Chalmers slowly started to appear more and more often until eventually he started appearing essentially whenever Skinner appeared, and was often treated as another employee of the school, appearing at student events, teacher meetings, or just whenever Skinner catches Bart committing another prank.
** Also, he is shown to be a very neutral and steadfast inspector of the school, with no ill will towards anybody, at least until Willie's tractor hit him. In later episodes, he shows an extreme distaste for Skinner (while still usually supporting his authoritarian or corrupt plans), allowing for his CatchPhrase "SKIN-NER!" to come into being. In fact, a lot of modern episodes have him appear just to make a joke about the catchphrase.
