* FanDisservice: Smithers imagines ''Mr. Burns'' erotically popping out of a birthday cake for him clad in nothing but a sash (though Smithers sees it as fanservice, which does nothing to downplay the fact that Smithers is gay for his boss).

* TheUnishment: Out of all the torturous acts Burns attempts on Homer to force Bobo back, the television hijack fails miserably. Homer actually ends up ''enjoying'' his and Smithers' new programming.

* ShamingTheMob: Done by[[MyGodWhatHaveIDone the mob themselves]], interestingly enough: after bursting into the Simpsons' house and being ''seconds'' away from leaving with Bobo, one look at how upset Maggie was over her toy being taken away was enough to have them give it back. And tellingly enough, the closest thing to a leader the mob had, Moe, [[EvenEvilHasStandards was the first to notice]].

* FailedAttemptAtDrama: After Bart gives Bobo to Maggie (who proceeds to hug it), we get a close up and a dramatic chord as we are shown... a "100% Cotton" tag. Cue a RecordNeedleScratch as the camera "looks" around the bear until it ''finally'' locates the "Bobo" tag. Cue the record starting back up.

* ArtisticLicenseGeography and ArtisticLicenseHistory: O.K., we may be able to buy that Charles Lindbergh took Bobo on his trip across the Atlantic Ocean and threw him away as soon as he arrived in Paris (since Lindbergh actually had a WesternAnimation/FelixTheCat doll when he made his famous trans-Atlantic flight, though it was night when he landed in Paris, not daytime). But Hitler grabbing the bear in the crowd? What was he doing in Paris in 1927? Wasn't he preparing the Nazi Party in Germany for winning the 1933 German elections? Not to mention that the real Lindbergh actually landed at night. Or the fact that Bobo the bear somehow got stuck on top of the "Nautilius" [[note]] The first nuclear submarine [[/note]] in 1957.

* {{Bowdlerization}}: On Canada's Global network and the UK, the Ramones' performance was edited to remove the lines "I'd just like to say this gig sucks!", "Up yours, Springfield!" and "Go to hell, you old bastard!" (making it seem as if Burns was scared because of the punk music, not the profanity and the punk music - although some broadcasts allow the "Go to hell!" to survive).
** When Princess Diana died, the scene of Mr. Burns getting his photo taken by a paparazzo was cut to remove Burns' line, "Damn you, paparazzo" in the UK because the paparazzi was implicated in causing the car crash that killed Princess Diana.
** In Australia, the part where Mr. Burns' security guards beat everyone up after he announces that his birthday party is over was cut, as well as the scene where Barney points a gun at Homer after Burns cuts off the Beer supply.
