Burns' birthday is approaching and he longs for Bobo,the teddy bear he had as a child. Bobo has had an illustrious history,including flying the Atlantic with Lindbergh and being buried in Arctic ice,some of which is sold as ice cubes to the Simpsons so that Bobo is now Maggie's toy. Burns attempts theft,bribery and robbery to get his Bobo back but the family stand firm against him until finally Maggie,feeling sorry for him,offers him Bobo. Written by

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. See more
Several ex-presidents attend Mr. Burns' birthday party. The bouncer allows Ronald Reagan and Richard Nixon to enter, but refuses to admit George Bush Sr. because he was a one-termer. However, Nixon also served only one term, but he was admitted anyway. Nixon was elected to two terms, although he resigned during his second term, the only President to do so. See more
