* OldShame: InUniverse, Roger Myers' controversial 1938 cartoon ''"Nazi Supermen are Our Superiors"'' is a jab at Creator/WaltDisney's suspected racist and antisemitic opinions, which, in reality, were not that much worse than most of the people who lived back then. Also, the Walt Disney Company only made anti-Nazi propaganda cartoons during UsefulNotes/WorldWarII. Other gags reveal more about Roger Myers' racist opinions: the park's [[SecretPolice security guards]] resembles the {{Gestapo}} a lot and that one of the characters in the Itchy & Scratchy franchise is even revealed to be named Ku Klux Klam.

* ItsAllAboutMe: Marge shows several shades of this given that she complains throughout the entire episode about how she's embarassed by Homer and Bart and thinks only of herself.

* {{Parody}}: Itchy & Scratchy Land is an extensive parody of the Ride/DisneyThemeParks, particularly Walt Disney World (Orlando, Florida). When the robots run amok, the episode also spoofs ''Film/JurassicPark'' and another Creator/MichaelCrichton work, ''Film/{{Westworld}}''. Even Marge's bird sanctuary isn't as calm as she thought it might be -- ''TheBirds'' are wreaking havoc there in a cutaway! Also, Euro Itchy & Scratchy Land was such a failure the employee working at the ticket booth feared for his wage.

* UnintentionalPeriodPiece: The joke about Creator/JohnTravolta being the bartender in a disco themed club in an amusement park had a different connotation when this episode aired than now. Back then Travolta was a Hollywood hasbeen whose career had been confined to B movies ever since the ''Film/SaturdayNightFever'' craze died down. Ironically enough that same year he would star in ''Film/PulpFiction'', the movie that revived his career and brought him back as a major star.



* WhatCouldPossiblyGoWrong: The family is taking a helicopter into the park when the pilot comes over the PA: "Welcome to Itchy & Scratchy Land, where nothing can possibligh go wrong. ...Possibly go wrong. That's...the first thing that's ever gone wrong."
