* TimeMarchesOn: Snake during his crime spree after breaking out of prison is disappointed that the [=VCR=] he stole plays only Beta (rather than the then prevalent VHS)); Beta-formatted [=VCR=]s had been retired from the United States' market in 1988.

Added DiffLines:

*** Hell even when this episode first aired the notion that Homer would be able to prevent Bart from watching the movie was quite farfetched, as Bart could've easily found ways to see it, like sneaking into the theater(or just going to another theater that Homer hadn't been to yet), watching it on video or on cable at a friends house(or at his home own home when Homer wasn't around), etc.

** The real life Korean animators who worked on the show did not find this joke funny, and didn't want to animate it.

* GenreSavvy: You didn't think Homer would rely on you not sneaking out of the house to watch the movie, did you, Bart?

* BerserkButton: Homer gets very angry when Bart declares "TV sucks".

* BerserkButton: Homer gets very angry [[TranquilFury visibly hides his fury]] when Bart declares "TV sucks".



* ForTheEvulz: Most of Bart's behaviour up until Homer takes his ticket is just... because. This includes tearing up the carpets, hitting mustard packets with a hammer, and stealing Abe's teeth.


Added DiffLines:

* IgnoredEpiphany: The first attempt to be firm with Bart almost works, just as he considers changing his behaviour however, Homer gives him a slice of pizza out of sympathy, so long as he promises to behave from now on.
-->'''Bart:''' ''cackles after Homer leaves*'' Sucker...
* ItAmusedMe: Most of Bart's behaviour up until Homer takes his ticket is just... because. This includes tearing up the carpets, hitting mustard packets with a hammer, and stealing Abe's teeth.
* ItsPersonal: Marge's parent's conference with Mrs. Krabappel slowly devolves into the latter giving Marge a thinly veiled comeuppance for birthing the bane of her existence, write down to outright giving her a detention:
-->''*Marge writes "I WILL TRY TO RAISE A BETTER CHILD." on the classroom chalkboard*''
-->'''Marge:''' I really don't see how this is helping Bart.
-->'''Mrs Krabappel:''' ''*firmly*'' Just do it.


Added DiffLines:

* SmartBall: Homer is surprisingly thorough in ensuring Bart can't see the movie, ripping up the ticket and keeping watchful eye on him throughout, even being savvy enough to request theatre staff not to let him in. He even sticks to his approach long after even Marge, who chastised him for his lax parenting earlier, starts to crack.

* WarTimeCartoon: Parodied with Kent Brockman showing an Itchy and Scratchy propaganda cartoon made during WorldWarTwo, where the cat and mouse fight off UsefulNotes/AdolfHitler. In the end Itchy kills off Scratchy too for the heck of it, while UsefulNotes/FranklinDRoosevelt appears to kick them both in the behind and Itchy holding up a sign with the text "Save Scrap Iron".

* AnimationBump: The WWII-era Itchy and Scratchy short is appropriately fluid and cartoony, to match the style of animation from that time period.



* OffModel: Lisa when she tells Bart how great the Itchy and Scratchy Movie was, particularly when she says "Creator/DustinHoffman, Music/MichaelJackson..." This could be due to it being one of the earlier episodes animated by Creator/FilmRoman.

* HilarityEnsues: Mrs. Krabappel mentions a series of increasingly serious incidents that Bart has been involved with (synthesizing peas and carrots into laxatives, replacing birth control pills with Tic Tacs, sneaking a knife into school and stuffing a lighted firecracker down a classmate's pants) ... and merely recommends to his parents that they show tough love. In the real world, while the first two incidents were troubling and would have been cause for counseling, the last two incidents would in the real world have gotten Bart expelled from school ... and most certainly in the last case, resulted in a huge lawsuit and him being sent to juvenile hall.
