Trivia

This is one of the only two episodes in which the guest star uses a pseudonym instead of their real name (the other being The Simpsons: Stark Raving Dad (1991)). Following the legal troubles surrounding that episode, the producers stated henceforce no pseudonyms would be allowed. As a result, all voice actors must use their true names in the credits.

Goofs

According to Bart's narration of his "kittens" video he shows his class, Snowball II was a kitten that the first Snowball had. But in The Simpsons: Simpsons Roasting on an Open Fire, it's clearly stated that Snowball II was bought. See more »

What the Simpsons is all about
3 April 2020 | by maddik-70372See all my reviews

This episode, in my mind is one of the best Simpsons episodes of all time. The emotion in every frame is beautiful, while still making you laugh. The pure nostalgia, happiness and longing I get from it is amazing. This is what the Simpsons is. At the end of the day, after all the jokes and gags, it's really just about a family. This episode showcases it. It's mesmerising and captivating, and frankly it's hard not to cry. The old animation, the voice actors, and the pure love for the show is what makes the Simpsons. I love it.
