After being inspired by a cartoonist during Career Day at Springfield Elementary, Bart creates an Internet cartoon based on Homer's anger problems called ''WebAnimation/AngryDad''. Meanwhile, the Comic Book Guy has his hands full when Marvel Comics legend Creator/StanLee begins harassing him and scaring off his customers.

* AdamWesting: Creator/StanLee voices a deranged version of himself.
-->"He can't be the Hulk! I'm the Hulk!"
* ActuallyThatsMyAssistant: A pretty pathetic example when Kirk speaks at career day.
-->'''Kirk:''' How many of you have gone back to your car only to find a coupon on your windshield?\\
'''Nelson:''' ''(visibly bored)'' Are you the guy who puts them there?\\
'''Kirk:''' No, I'm his assistant. But one time, he was sick and he let me do it.... I totally messed it up.
* AuthorAvatar: Bart creates a cartoon about his father, just like how Creator/MattGroening based the Simpsons on his own family.
* BitingTheHandHumor, InkSuitActor, and TakeThat: Bart's voice actor for the Angry Dad Internet cartoons is based on Creator/DanCastellaneta (the voice actor best known for playing Homer Simpson), who gets the job for capturing the spirit of Angry Dad ("Whoo-hoo! When do I get paid?"), but won't be paid until 2012 ("D'oh!")
* BodyHorror: When trying to suppress his anger, boils keep popping out of Homer's neck until a whole bunch of them spring up.
* BreadEggsMilkSquick:
-->'''Homer:''' I gave up anger forever. From now on, I'm into candles, soft music, and horse tranquilizer.
* BuffySpeak: "I'm a rageaholic, and I can't live without Rageahol!"
* CallBack:
** When Homer is suppressing his anger, he starts "diddly"-ing, [[Recap/TheSimpsonsS8E8HurricaneNeddy just like Flanders]].
** When watching an episode of ''[[ShowWithinAShow When Dinosaurs Get Drunk]]'' where a Stegosaurus wanders into a tar pit, Homer chuckles and says that [[Recap/TheSimpsonsS5E17BartsGetsAnElephant he's been there.]]
* CheekCopy: One of the employees at is seen the background Xeroxing his butt.
%%* {{Cloudcuckoolander}}: Creator/StanLee is portrayed as one.
* CompositeCharacter: Parodied. Bart claims Angry Dad to be [[DistinctionWithoutADifference a mix of three dads: his dad, Lisa's dad and a little of Maggie's dad]].
-->'''Lisa:''' No, it's just Dad.
* ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin: [[ShowWithinAShow Bin Laden In A Blender]]
-->'''Lisa:''' [[LittleMissSnarker Well, it delivers what it promises.]]
* HairTriggerTemper: Homer's anger problems inspire Bart to create Angry Dad.
* HulkingOut:
** Stan Lee tries to transform into the Hulk, claiming to have actually done it in the past.
--->'''Stan Lee:''' He can't be the Hulk! ''I'm'' the Hulk! ''[rips shirt]'' Mrrrroaarrr! Come on, damnit, change! Mmmmm!\\
'''Comic Book Guy:''' Oh, please! You couldn't even change into Bill Bixby!\\
'''Stan Lee:''' Mmmmm! Aw, forget it. Mm-mmmm! I really did it once!\\
'''Comic Book Guy:''' ''[walking Stan Lee in the store]'' Yes, yes. I just wish you had the power to leave my store.\\
'''Stan Lee:''' ''[off-screen]'' Mmmmmh!\\
'''Comic Book Guy:''' You almost had it there.
* HalfwayPlotSwitch: This episode starts out about comic books before being about web cartoons, although it eventually ties back together.
* KickTheDog: Homer randomly starts punching Snowball II and wasn't even aware of it until Marge pointed it out.
* LeaningOnTheFourthWall: As Bart becomes frustrated by Homer not losing his temper (thus not giving Bart material for ''Angry Dad''), he says [[SelfDeprecation "Don't make me do another clip show!"]], referring to the last episode, "Gump Roast", which has been, to date, the last ClipShow ever done on the show.
* MagicPants: Worn by Homer Mad and [[LampshadeHanging lampshaded]] by Bart.
* NoodleIncident: Stan Lee apparently turned into the Hulk once.
* NonIndicativeName: ''The Danger Dog Easter Special'' has nothing to do with Easter.
* OffModel:
** {{Lampshaded}} by Comic Book Guy who calls the ''Angry Dad'' character this in every frame, but still considers it worthy of being sold in his store.
** When Bart critiques his ''Danger Dog'' ripoff comic, everything ''except'' for Bart becomes pixelated, [[ which gets jarring when he picks up the comic]].
** Bart loses his lower torso for a few frames during Milhouse's "Looks like the bubble burst" line near the end.
** Maggie's bow shifts from its usual blue, to red, then back to blue again during the scene at the hospital between cuts.
* RageBreakingPoint: Homer finally lets his suppressed anger loose when he falls into a kiddie pool filled with green paint.
* RealityEnsues: Homer doesn't really [[HulkingOut Hulk Out]], he just gets ''really'' angry. And despite that, he's still easily subdued by the police.
* ShoutOut: Bart's latest attempt to drive Homer furious involved green paint and made Homer look like ComicBook/{{Hulk}}.
* ShowWithinAShow: ''Angry Dad,'' ''When Dinosaurs Get Drunk,'' and ''Danger Dog.''
* StalkerWithACrush: The Comic Book Guy is this towards Lynda Carter:
-->'''Comic Book Guy:''' The restraining order says "No-no", but her eyes say "Yes-yes".
* TakeThat:
** To the popular bubble burst of the late 90s-early 2000s.
** Apparently, Danger Dog's mortal enemy is Creator/{{Molly Ring|wald}}''[[Creator/MollyRingwald worm]]''.
* TheInternetIsForPorn: ''Angry Dad'' is ranked #1, excluding porn. Including porn, it's #10,000,000,000,000.
* TheThingThatWouldNotLeave: Stan Lee doesn't seem to leave the comic book store.
-->'''Bart:''' Stan Lee came back?\\
'''Comic Book Guy:''' Stan Lee never left. And I'm starting to think his mind is no longer in mint condition.
%%* {{Troll}}: Creator/StanLee is portraayed as one.
* WhereTheHellIsSpringfield: Lampshaded. When the creator of the cartoon ''Danger Dog'' visits Springfield Elementary, the children are given the chance to ask questions. Hundreds of hands go up. The first question is "What state is Danger Dog set in?" "Michigan." All but one hand immediately goes down again.
