Trivia

In honor of his birthday, Smithers 'arranges' for the people of Australia to spell out Mr. Burns's name with candles across the large country, so that it can be seen via satellite. This is a reference to an effort the people of Australia made during the first spaceflight of John Glenn. People across the country left their outdoor lights on, to give the astronaut a nice light-show as he flew over. Glenn even remarked on how pretty it was. Incidentally, when John Glenn returned to space a second time, in recent years, a similar effort was encouraged across Australia, so as to recreate the experience for the elderly astronaut.

"Rosebud" is the result of some awesome writing... it depicts how everyone has a love in life... even something as small as a stuffed animal.

This episode is about Burns' search for his missing teddy bear, Bobo. Burns has numerous dreams about his teddy bear and Smithers suspects that he's missing something. Once he figures it out, a search is conducted for the bear. The bear had gone through many situations and landed in Maggie's hands after all those years. Smithers tries to dress up as a bear to make Burns happy but it proves useless as the old man is too attached to his original little teddy. Even the most cold and ruthless person has a weakness... and Burns' seems to be his attachment to his teddy bear. Burns tries to force Maggie to obtain the bear in numerous situations... one in which Burns and Smithers try to steal the bear... but after all fails, Maggie decides to hand the bear to him out of her own will. Burns is satisfied and Smithers tucks him in bed with his little Bobo. In a small futuristic angle, Burns and Smithers are shown in their future selves as robotic and cyborg mutations... and Burns still has the teddy, his little dream toy. Awesome writing that portrays a man's love for something so minor yet amazing... how something of such small caliber can create such emotion in a person. Very awesome writing.
