** When Krusty Burger created the Ribwich, it created hordes of devotees who followed it around to selected restaurants like GratefulDead fans (including Homer of course). Krusty has to announce that they had to stop making it since the animal they used was driven extinct.

** Sideshow Bob has his own CapeFear inspired theme music most anytime he appears on-screen, and the show also features two commonly-used musical motifs for town riots. (for reference, the first "riot theme" is heard during the soccer riot in "The Cartridge Family", while the other is heard in "Brake My Wife, Please" when Bart's and Milhouse's Peruvian fighting frogs battle each other)

* JobStealingRobot:
** Mr. Burns has twice tried to replace all the workers at SNPP with robots. The first time is during a strike and the robots run amok. The second time Burns fires everyone (except Homer) and replace them with robots, which eventually (thanks to Homer) run amok. This time the unemployed and underemployed former SNPP workers come to his rescue, and he rehires them all.

** The episode "Natural Born Kissers" sees Homer and Marge visit a miniature golf course, though not to play, but rather to "get busy" inside the windmill hazard. Being a comedy series, this effort goes Entertainingly Wrong.

* IsleOfGiantHorrors: It subverted this in an ImagineSpot. When Lisa is told she's failing gym in one episode, she imagines that it costs her a government position and she's sent to "Monster Island". She's told "It's just a name", but ends up getting chased by monsters anyway.
-->'''Lisa:''' I thought it was just a name!
-->'''Man:''' [[ExactWords What he meant was that Monster Island is actually a peninsula]].
