Trivia

This story is based on the short story (and later a novel) "Flowers for Algernon", in which an experiment temporarily turns a mentally retarded man into a genius. The most direct reference to the book is the white mouse that repeatedly beats Homer in a game, just like Algernon (a white mouse as well) beats Charly in the original story. See more »
