Trivia: The Simpsons S 7 E 10 The Simpsons138th Episode Spectacular
- Edited for Syndication: Though Troy promises a look at clips cut from the syndicated run of the show in the introduction (over a brief clip of the Wartime Cartoon from "Itchy & Scratchy: The Movie", which indeed falls under this trope), no such segment actually turns up in this episode, raising the possibility that this was a deliberate joke to confuse viewers when it went into syndication.
- Played straight with some of the scenes from the Tracy Ullman shorts cut when the episode was put in actual syndication. The real end to the very first Tracy Ullman Simpsons cartoon (where Bart, Lisa, and Maggie rush to Homer and Marge's room and sleep in their bed) was cut so that way it ends on Homer and Marge congratulating themselves on being good parents and saying good-night to each other. Also cut was everything after Bart getting the vase stuck to his head on the Tracy Ullman short where Bart, Lisa, and Maggie play Space Patrol (Lisa breaks the vase and leaves Bart to be yelled at by Homer and Marge).
