*** On the subject of PoliticalCorrectnessGoneMade jokes, the plot of the episode "Uneasy Rider" involves Jay delivering a shipment of politically correct textbooks to schoolchildren. One concerned father bemoans that his son asks "When is he going to get here?" and not "When is he or she going to get here?" 20+ years later, we see a stronger push for gender-neutral pronouns like "they" or "them" to include genders other than male and female, meaning that "he or she" is now politically incorrect!

** "All the Duke's Men" is this. A New York City based billionaire with a iconic skyscraper, with no political experience runs for President? Like that would ever work...

** While fans will certainly claim the show has held up in terms of its humor, more modern viewers may find the film parodies unremarkable, even if enjoyable. However, the idea of a show, let alone a prime-time cartoon, specializing in film parody was a rather new concept back in 1994. However, today, we have shows that consistently parody films, television, and pop culture, such as later seasons of ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons'', ''WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy'' (particularly its cutaway gags and family TV interludes), ''WesternAnimation/SouthPark'', ''WesternAnimation/Futurama'', ''WesternAnimation/RickAndMorty'', just to name a few.

*** That episode is a double whammy, since it also involves a presidential campaign that gets derailed in large part thank to the candidate's loopy running mate. Are we talking about Franklin Sherman or Sarah Palin?
