- Harsher in Hindsight:
- Lisa comes down with the mumps, a disease once thought to have been nearly eradicated in the Western world thanks to the MMR vaccine introduced not too long after the episode aired. Since the middle of The New '10s, the anti-vaxxer movement has led to a steady increase in mumps cases.
- Tracy Ullman's cameo became this a few years later when the show took off and she sued for a cut of the royalties, claiming "I breast-fed those little devils". The court ultimately ruled against Ullman since she wasn't actually involved in the creation or production of The Simpsons.
