* CrushKillDestroy: The Itchy and Scratchy robots have a protocol that ensures that they only attack each other; their HUD commands them to "KILL" their opposite number. Inevitably, they malfunction, and the "KILL" command is demanded of human targets.

--> '''Marge''': Are you two bonkers? We almost got killed! Not to mention all the embarrassment I suffered.\\
'''Lisa''': But mom, it's exactly what you wanted in a vacation: It brought us closer as a family, we got a lot of good exercise outdoors, and we have so many memories!\\

* LookBehindYou: A man tells Marge that at Itchy & Scratchy Land they're also concerned about violence and always show the consequences of such actions. Marge asks when they show the consequences giving an example where Itchy pulled out Scratchy's lungs yet was breathing fine in the next scene. The man answers "Just like in real life" before running away when he tells her to look.
* MrAltDisney: Roger Myers, the antisemitic cartoon genius, is an obvious stab at Creator/WaltDisney, who was accused of having rather xenophobic opinions about certain ethnicities, though not worse as many other people at that time.
** Meanwhile his son, Roger Myers Jr. is a CorruptCorporateExecutive and obvious jab at then-Disney CEO Michael Eisner.

* 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 German [[SecretPolice security guards]] resemble UsefulNotes/TheGestapo a lot and that one of the characters in the Itchy & Scratchy franchise is even revealed to be named [[UsefulNotes/KuKluxKlan Ku Klux Klam]].

* PreAssKickingOneLiner: Bart says in Schwarzenegger-esque voice "Hey mouse... say cheese." followed quickly by "With a dry, cool wit like that, I could be an action hero." It's played with even further when moments later, Homer [[AtopAMountainOfCorpses emerges from a pile of defeated robots]], saying "Die, bad robots, die!... With a dry, cool wit like that, I could be an action hero."
