Trivia

As Bart calls the Southern Hemisphere, the tone of his dialing actually plays the theme song for National Geographic documentaries. See more »

Goofs

One of the jokes is that the bullfrog Bart brings to Australia reproduces and they spread causing major damage. However, Bart brought only one bullfrog so how could it have reproduced? Answer: by cross-breeding with a local Australian frog of the same family (Ranidae). Cross-breeding of different genera in the same family is improbable, but theoretically possible, in real life (e.g. cattle and buffalo have made "beefaloes" and "cattaloes"), and even more likely in a comedy of The Simpsons' nature.

HomerMargeBart: WHAT?
U.S. Ambassador: The Prime Minister just wants to kick Bart once, through the gate, with a regular shoe.
Conover: I believe it's a wing tip.
