* PlagiarismInFiction: Bart points out that the "patented Gabbo crank call" is a bit stolen from Krusty. Lisa tops him by pointing out that "Krusty stole it from Steve Allen", and this is confirmed when Krusty realizes the call was a trick -- "If this is anyone but Steve Allen, you're stealing my bit!" ** Grampa Simpson even pointed out that everything is stolen nowadays, like the fax machine (which, to him, is a waffle iron with a phone attached).

** The scene of Krusty and The Red Hot Chili Peppers (see {{Bowdlerise}} above) is a parody of an incident of [[Series/TheEdSullivanShow Ed Sullivan]] asking Music/TheRollingStones to change [[Music/BetweenTheButtons "Lets Spend the Night Together"]] to "Let's Spend Some Time Together" (as "spend the night" was seen as too sexually suggestive at the time). Mick Jagger didn't warm up to the change. A similar incident occurred when Music/TheDoors appeared: Sullivan asked Morrison to change a line in [[Music/TheDoorsAlbum "Light My Fire"]] from 'girl, we couldn't get much higher' to 'girl, we couldn't get much better' fearing that the line "higher" would be seen as condoning drug use; much like the Stones, Morrison sang the original lyrics on air. Unlike the Stones, The Doors did not appear on the show again, prompting Morrison's reply of [[SugarWiki/AwesomeMoment We just did, Sullivan]]

* {{Bowdlerise}}: In-Universe: Krusty wants the Red Hot Chili Peppers to change the lyrics of [[''Music/BloodSugarSexMagik'' "Give It Away"]]. They refuse at first, but when Krusty suggests to change, "What I got/You gotta get/And put it in you" to "What I'd like/Is I'd like to/Hug and kiss you," they warm up to the idea.

* ChannelHop: In-universe. Gabbo is so popular that ''The Itchy & Scratchy Show'' starts appearing on it rather than ''The Krusty the Klown Show''.

** As noted at this episode's Wikipedia page, the light-up KRUSTY letters that open the show reference ''Elvis'', a famous ElvisPresley TV concert from 1968 (when his musical career was bottoming out) that came to be dubbed "the '68 comeback special". Indeed, the whole concept of a comeback special effectively comes from Elvis's show.

* RepurposedPopSong: Krusty performs "Send in the Clowns" to open his special. It changes virtually all of the lyrics, since the original song is about a failed romance.

* DisproportionateRetribution: When Snake Jailbird tosses a can out his car window onto the highway Bette Midler just finished cleaning up, she responds by chasing after him ''on foot'', jumping onto his car, and throwing the can back in, which causes the car to swerve off the road and crash. A second driver does the same thing, and Midler simply tosses the can at the car, which causes the driver to lose control and careen into the nearby mountainside. -->'''Bette Midler''': We're Americans. We deserve clean highways.
