Trivia

Bart calls South America prior to calling Australia, and the man who attempts to answer his call resembles an aged Adolf Hitler. This is a reference to numerous Nazis fleeing Germany at the end of the Second World War to find refuge in South America. See more »

Goofs

The plot revolves around the idea that water rotates in a different direction in the Southern Hemisphere due to so called "Coriolis effect". This is in fact a common misconception - the Coriolis force is too weak to cause any visible effect, and the water can rotate in any direction anywhere on Earth. The direction is primarily determined by the shape of the sync and the way it was filled. See more »

Quotes

Bruno Dundridge: Hey, you're just some punk kid, aren't you? Well, you picked the wrong guy to tangle with, mate!
Bart: [laughs] I don't think so. You're all the way over in Australia. Hey, I think I hear a dingo eating your baby.
