Trivia

Although the full frontal nude scene of Bart in the Simpsons film caused much controversy, this episode was the first instance of a Simpsons character's uncensored genitalia being shown. When Homer looks up the front page of the newspaper from the day he was born, the photo of him is clearly anatomically correct. See more »

Goofs

When Homer is writing his first review, Marge tells him there is no "e" on the typewriter, but when the editor reads his review he says that Homer used words as "pasghetti" and "screw Flanders", meaning that he did use the "e". See more »

Quotes
