Homer vs. Patty and Selma
A Star is Burns
Lisa's Wedding


  • This episode aired in March 1995 to coincide with the premiere of The Critic on FOX. Matt Groening was against the idea of The Simpsons having a crossover with The Critic as the episode played out as an episode-long advertisement for the show. Groening removed his name from the beginning and end credits, making this the only episode (as of 2013) to not have Matt Groening credited.
  • Jon Lovitz speaks in the DVD commentary for the episode. He also talks about his one similarity with Jay Sherman: His testicular size.
  • A deleted scene shows the residents of Springfield Retirement Castle making a risqué movie titled What the Pool Boy Saw to enter in the Springfield Film Festival.
  • According to a security camera in the Kwik-E-Mart on Apu's video, the videos were made on July 22, 1994. Assuming all the films were shown the next day on July 23, 1994, then the skip to 6 months later would be on January 23, 1995, safely within original run of Season 6, although this episode aired on March 5, 1995.
