* ShoutOut: The [[WesternAnimation/TheItchyAndScratchyShow Itchy and Scratchy]] cartoon features several. The title (''Dogday Hellody of 1933'') is a play on ''Broadway Melody''. The basic plot is a parody of ''Disney/PlutosJudgementDay'', while the parade of celebrity cameos brings (Including Harpo Marx, Will Rogers, and Edward G. Robinson) is reminiscent of the "Hollywood Party" style of [[WesternAnimation/LooneyTunes Looney Tunes]] cartoons, such as ''Hollywood Steps Out''

Added DiffLines:

* HalfwayPlotSwitch: The first half of the episode has Bart bonding with an injured bird he was taking care of, then when Santa's Little Helper eats it, the rest of the episode deals with Bart being angry with him and the family contemplating giving him away.


* EpicFail: When Homer tries to build a pigeon coop for Bart's bird, it's so rickety that when he merely pats it, rather then collapse into a pile, the staples pop out, causing the chicken wire to refold itself as the framework falls apart, then it rolls back into its box which is then ''resealed by the popped out staples''. Yeah, it's one of Homer's ''special'' {{Epic Fail}}s.
