* BadBadActing: The actors that Mr. Burns hired to impersonate Homer, Marge and Lisa Simpson were like this, with deadpan delivery and off-sounding voices, most notably "Homer" saying "B'oh!" (rather than "D'oh.")



* LatexPerfection: This is how the actors Mr. Burns hires are made up to look like Homer, Marge and Lisa Simpson, including Lisa actually being an old male Estonian dwarf DisguisedInDrag.

However, while their disguises were physically flawless, their attempts to act like the Simpsons family [[BadBadActing weren't so good]].

**** Even the ''Springfield's Most Wanted'' special does it when showing Mr. Burns' background.

* ContinuitySnarl: Krusty reads a telegram in a 1982 episode of his show, even though he is supposed to be [[Recap/TheSimpsonsS1E12KrustyGetsBusted illiterate]].
** When Mr. Burn's life flashes before his eyes, we see a nanny feeding him a bottle (implying that Burns has always been from a rich family), but in the episode [[Recap/TheSimpsonsS5E4Rosebud "Rosebud,"]] Mr. Burns' childhood was very similar to that of Charles Foster Kane from ''Film/CitizenKane'' (read: he grew up in a poor, but loving family and was adopted by a twisted, loveless billionaire).

* DeletedScene and WhatCouldHaveBeen: Mr. Burns casually locking Homer out of the mansion after Homer dares Burns to do his worst was originally supposed to be the infamous sequence where Burns sics a robot replica of flamboyant fitness guru Richard Simmons on Homer, only for it to malfunction and explode after Smithers shoots it in the eye. The writers have claimed that this sequence wasn't all that funny (to them and the test audience), but became a smash during college lectures and animation conventions. The scene was also included on the season seven ClipShow episode [[Recap/TheSimpsonsS7E10TheSimpsons138thEpisodeSpectacular "The Simpsons' 138th Episode Spectacular."]]
** Richard Simmons was also supposed to voice his robotic counterpart, but turned it down because he didn't want to voice himself as a robot. Creator/HankAzaria was brought in as his replacement.
