Did You Know?
Homer's hairstyles change several times throughout the episode. He starts off with long hair, then to a 1970s style small afro, then to a more close cropped 1950s type haircut, and finally a 1980s Miami Vice
(1984) style angular cut with a small ponytail. See more
There is no logical way that Karl could have known about the Simpsons' wedding anniversary, as Homer forgot all about it and this sort of information would not be in his personal record at the power plant. See more

The audio commentary for the UK DVD on the episode "Simpsons and Delilah" was cut by 15 seconds by the BBFC, to remove "sexual references" and keep it in line with the "U" certificate originally given to the episode. See more
