* {{Expy}}: Menthol Moose for Joe Camel, the RealLife mascot for Camel Cigarettes. At the time this episode was made, the company was accused of using the mascot to subtly market cigarettes to children.
** Some analysis believe that Joe Camel was just as recognizable as WesternAnimation/MickeyMouse to six year old kids.
* ExtremeOmnivore: Homer eating the entire tub of petroleum jelly that Lisa was using on her teeth for that frictionless smile. According to [[WordOfGod the writers and producers on the DVD commentary]], this was the grossest thing Homer has ever eaten (so far, anyway).

* ArtShift: [[https://frinkiac.com/gif/S04E04/69018/72988/ The Couch Gag]] has more exaggerated and cartoonish animation than normal.
** Makes sense since the family overshoots the film and has to scramble back toward the couch.
* AsHimself: Creator/BobHope (He hosts a local [=USO=] show and presents Lisa to the crowd. They aren't happy because they were expecting an ''adult'' pageant queen, and proceed to riot in a spoof of ''Film/ApocalypseNow''.)

* DisqualificationInducedVictory: Lisa is crowned Little Miss Springfield after Amber is hit by lightning, making her unable to "fulfill her duties" as Little Miss Springfield. The pageant's sponsor (Laramie Cigarettes) doesn't like her speaking out against smoking so they find a [[LoopholeAbuse loophole]]: on the entry form where it says "Do not write in this space" Homer wrote "O.K." Lisa is [[ExactWords disqualified]] and the title goes back to the original winner.

* SmokingIsNotCool: Little Miss Springfield is sponsored by Laramie's, a cigarette multinational, who doesn't shy away of subliminally advertising tobacco on TV and promoting cigarette smoking among mothers and children. When Lisa realizes she is exploited by the company she immediately rebels against them and uses her influence to provide more socially admirable messages, such as making a stance that government money could be used for better education instead of merely sponsoring sporting games (which caused a football team to be chased out by angry nerds).
