* ExecutiveMeddling: In one of the rare examples that actually helped the show rather than harmed it, the original line describing Hitler's car at the carnival mentioned that it was in Disney's Electric Light Parade. The legal team for FOX begged them not to use that line for fear of a lawsuit, so the line was changed to being the first car with "farfegneugen."
