* AluminumChristmasTrees: Yes, ''Film/PaintYourWagon'' is a real movie, and it was made ''after'' Creator/ClintEastwood became famous. Furthermore, it really ''was'' a musical. But it was not about painting wagons, and does not feature the song heard in this episode.


* GettingCrapPastTheRadar: Even though this episode was rated TV-G in America (when it premiered. The reruns have it at its proper rating of TV-PG), it got away with showing Snake holding the family at gunpoint (and firing said gun during the credits), a reference to Milhouse being gay and clips from the risqué season eight episode "Bart After Dark".

Added DiffLines:

* ExcusePlot: In the video, the wagon is just an excuse for the characters to sing a musical.


Added DiffLines:

* TheyWastedAPerfectlyGoodPlot: In-universe, Homer complains that so much singing ruined the story about the wagon.

Added DiffLines:

* WouldHurtAChild: Snake threatens the lives of the entire Simpson family multiple times. He goes so far as to point his shotgun at the heads of Bart, Lisa and even Maggie, pulling the trigger while the shotgun is aimed at each individual child's head. Thankfully, the gun wasn't loaded.

* SeriesContinuityError: In "[[Recap/TheSimpsonsS6E20TwoDozenAndOneGreyhounds Two Dozen and One Greyhounds]]," Bart claimed that "See My Vest" was "pretty catching" and even hummed along with the tune. Here, he claims that "it wasn't worth Burns' song and dance."
