Trivia / The Simpsons S2 E7 "Bart vs. Thanksgiving"

Go To

  • Deleted Scene: The scene where Bart donates blood was originally supposed to be longer and show the interior, with Bart having his blood taken.
  • First Appearance: Of Jacqueline Bouvier, Bill and Marty.
  • Reality Subtext: During Bart's Imagine Spot, Uncle Sam appears and tell him it's his fault America has lost its way. This is a reference to politicians, conservatives and Moral Guardians deeming Bart (and the show) a bad influence during the show's early years. Specifically, this was cemented during President George H. W. Bush's speech that American families should be "more like The Waltons and less like The Simpsons".
