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

According to the phone bill Homer receives with Bart's long distance charges the calls were made between 8:45 and 10:15 am. Bart would have had to made the calls in the afternoon, as after he hangs up on the six hour call to Australia it is nighttime in Springfield. See more »
