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

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.

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.
