* TwoDecadesBehind: George Bush isn't quite on par with the modern-day world, such as using a typewriter to write his memoirs instead of a computer and being perplexed by Krusty Burger's drive-thru menu.

Added DiffLines:

* SpiritualSuccessor: Some see this story as a Spiritual Predecessor to Season 8's "Homer's Enemy" as a story about a "normal" person (UsefulNotes/GeorgeHWBush / Frank Grimes) placed into the absurd world of Springfield, where he eventually comes into conflict with Homer, becoming declared enemies.

* RealLifeWritesThePlot: This episode was based on one of the writers actually playing pranks on George H.W. Bush as a kid and wasn't meant to be a political attack on him. However, since George H.W. Bush and Barbara criticized ''TheSimpsons'' during its early years for contributing to the alleged downfall of society, a lot of viewers have stated that this episode had political undertones.

Added DiffLines:

* AmbiguousSyntax: When Bush retaliates by putting up a poster that says "Two bad neighbors" with drawings of Homer and Bart:
--> '''Dr. Hibbert''': I don't understand. Are you saying you and Barbara are bad neighbors?\\

'''Ned''': Who? Maude and me?\\
'''Bush''': No! The man and his boy.

Added DiffLines:

* PapaWolf: Homer decides to go on a revenge prank campaign with Bart because Bush gave Bart ''one'' slap on the tush in retaliation for Bart acting like [[DennisTheMenaceUs Dennis The Menace]]. Also overlaps with DisproportionateRetribution (Bush explaining why it happened doesn't makes Homer even so much as tell Bart to say he's sorry).

to:

* BlatantLies:
--> '''Homer''': He ''spanked'' you? You, Bart Simpson?\\
'''Bart''': I begged him to stop, but he said it was for the good of the nation! [[labelnote:Note]](Of course, in reality, Bush gave Bart a couple of ''very'' light slaps and told him to go home and think about what he's done, with Bart walking away with a confused look on his face.)[[/labelnote]]
