* BlondGuysAreEvil: In an episode where the Simpsons play up the DumbBlonde jokes, Lisa is offended by them and asks why Bart finds them funny, cue lampshade hanging by Bart, "Only blonde girls are dumb, the boys are evil!" Note that Bart and Lisa are themselves blonde. (Though Bart is actually a redhead; he purposefully sunbleaches his hair to avoid being called Rusty.)
** When Milhouse moved to Capitol City in one episode, he started hanging out with "The Wrong Crowd", was acting out even before he moved, and dyed his hair blond.

* ArtisticLicenseGeography: In ''Blame it on Lisa'', when the family travels do Brazil, some kidnappers takes Homer from Rio to the Amazon Rainforest and back to Rio again in a single day, [[TravelingAtTheSpeedOfPlot before sunset]]. As Rio de Janeiro is located in Brazil's Southeast, while the Amazon Rainforest is in the North, in real life those travels would take days. Unless the kidnappers used a supersonic plane, which is very unlikely.

*** [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9qcY2ERwmaU The couch gag]] done by veteran Creator/{{Disney}} animator Eric Goldberg. Naturally, it features {{Disneyesque}} fluid animation, while notably keeping the characters mostly on model (despite the obvious different [[ArtShift Art Shifts]] for each character).

* AesopAmnesia: Homer and Marge with respects to their parenting towards Bart. It has been repeatedly shown that when the give more attention to Bart and act like normal parents he becomes a significantly better person. As both Whacking Day and Itchy & Scratchy Movie shows this can be as little as asking him if he has home work and making sure he does it, and if that doesnít work giving him a reasonable punishment (i.e not strangling him) and following through with it.

**
As both Whacking Day seen in Lisaís Sax where they gave up on helping Bart merely because it would be inconvenient in helping Lisa it comes across more as laziness on Homer and Itchy & Scratchy Movie shows this can be as Margeís part. As seen in many episodes the combination of ParentalNeglect and [[AbusiveParents abuse]] makes them doing little as asking him if he has home work and things such making sure he does it, his homework and if that doesnít work giving him a reasonable legitimate punishment (i.e not strangling straggling him) when he does something wrong and following through with it. not letting him off the hook if enough to make him a far better person. Unfortunately StatusQuoIsGod by the next episode.

'''Homer:''' ...Yeah, probably. Anyway, once upon a time, there was a big mean lion who got a thorn in his paw. All the village people tried to pull it out, but nobody was strong enough! So they got Hercules, and Hercules used his mighty strength, and -- bingo! Anyway, the moral is, the lion was so happy, he gave Hercules this big... thing... of riches.
'''Bart:''' How did a lion get rich?
