* BaitAndSwitch: When Homer, Marge, and Lisa were looking for Bart and Stompy, they followed a trail of destruction that seemed to be caused by the elephant. But then it's revealed it was because of a tornado, much to Homer's chagrin...until he saw that it had swept up Patty and Selma.

* RealityEnsues: Similar to the issues with Lisa's pony in season 3 (and later, Duncan the race horse in season 11), an elephant would be far too expensive for a middle class family like the Simpsons to keep as a pet, and a good portion of the episode is about Homer trying to sell it. ** Not to mention elephants cannot live on [[StockAnimalDiet peanuts]] alone.

* RealityEnsues: Similar to As outlandish as this episode was accused of being at the issues with Lisa's pony in season 3 (and later, Duncan the race horse in season 11), an elephant would be far too expensive for a middle class family like the Simpsons to keep as a pet, and a good portion of time, the episode is about Homer trying did have glimpses of realism, like The Simpsons (a lower-middle-class family) not having the money to sell it. ** Not to mention elephants cannot live on [[StockAnimalDiet peanuts]] alone.keep a full-grown African elephant as a pet and Stampy getting sick from eating just peanuts (which, in most cartoons, wouldn't happen).

** The original 1950s version of ''ThePriceIsRight'': A contestant was told he had won an African elephant and then told he could decide (later) whether to take a $4,000 cash substitute. The contestant much like Bart did more than 35 years later chose the elephant, and when legal and other threats arose, the producers complied. ** ''TheSoundOfMusic'': The "Do-Re-Mi" song when Homer crashes the car into a statue of a deer. ** The shot of Stampy looking through Marge's window parodies ''Film/JurassicPark''.
