Trivia / The Simpsons S6E21 "The PTA Disbands"

Go To

  • Crossdressing Voices: Taken to an extreme with the adult male supervisor of the construction site Bart messes around with having a voice exactly like Bart's, complete with Nancy Cartwright supplying his voice.
    "Hey, can't you tell my voice from a ten-year-old kid's?! Ay carumba!"
  • Development Gag: The bit where a man hysterically shouts "The PTA has disbanded!" and jumps out a window, only to be informed it had not, and calmly jumps back through the same window and takes his seat, is a lighthearted jab at the writer who suggested the Strike Episode plot thinking the PTA disbanding would be the most interesting element of the plot.

  • Edited for Syndication: The scene during the end of act one where all the teachers leave after the strike is called where Mr. Largo's class plays "Pop Goes the Weasel" (which Mr. Largo banned from being played) now that Mr. Largo isn't here is cut from network TV syndication, making act one end on the scene of the little girl stuck on the gymnastic rings yelling for her gym teacher Mrs. Pummelhorst to let her down. Versions shown on FX, FXX, the DVDs, and Disney Plus have it uncut.
  • Write What You Know: Much of the episode is based on David Mirkin's experience as a child with schools running out of money.
