On FXX, when this episode aired on August 21, 2014, also the first day of the "Every. Simpsons. Ever.", at the beginning of the episode, the TV-PG rating appears for about 2 and a half seconds before it disappears. But, after Homer says his catchphrase, 'D'oh!' the Rated TV-PG reappeared on the top left corner of the screen for about 15 seconds in this episode, making it for about 17 and a half seconds of appearance. However, in the repeat airing on FXX, this error was fixed. See more
Fugu poisoning doesn't proceed in the manner Dr. Hibbert claims; what actually happens is that paralysis sets in almost immediately, resulting in eventual death from asphyxiation when it reaches the lungs. However, Dr. Hibbert's mistake in this matter forms the entire basis of this episode. See more
