Cultural references


  • It is revealed that Marge's birthday is on March 19, even though another episode revealed that Marge shares a birthday with Randy Quaid (Randy Quaid was born on October 1, 1950).
  • Homer sings along to the theme song while driving replacing the music with "doo"s.
  • This is the fourth episode which revolves around a Simpson being an artist. The previous three are "Brush with Greatness," "Mom and Pop Art" and "Ice Cream of Margie (with the Light Blue Hair)". Like Homer's art in Mom and Pop Art, Bart's artwork in this episode vandalized Springfield. However in this episode, Bart got caught by the police while in Mom and Pop Art, he wondered about whether Homer's art would be seen as vandalism. Also in Mom and Pop Art, Jasper Johns was a thief where in this episode Shepard Fairey was on the opposite end of the law. Brush with Greatness and Ice Cream of Margie (with the Light Blue Hair) also feature a masterpiece of Homer.
  • The last time Homer placed Bart in a pet habitat was in "Home Away from Homer."
  • A red can of paint thinner is seen again (though not identical), which was last seen in "Homer Scissorhands."
  • Bart creates a graffiti image of Skinner saying "I am a wiener," just like he did in "Bart the Genius" (and did again in "Principal Charming," with the graffiti image: "I am still a wiener"). This time, however, the word "wiener" is spelt with an "ie," not an "ei."
  • Bart's graffiti artwork is also central to the plot in the comic story Picture Perfect.
  • The last time a shop in Springfield turns out better than the Kwik-E-Mart was in "Monty Can't Buy Me Love." He has also become suspicious of an unseen discount store in "I Love Lisa".
  • The last time Marge was made into an effigy occurred in "Tennis the Menace."
  • The last time where Homer fails to recognize himself occurred in "Marge and Homer Turn a Couple Play".
  • The last time Bart is told to spray paint someone's message which he adds to it to reflect his view occurred in "Lemon of Troy".
  • The last time a character applies art to Homer's car much to his displeasure occurred in "Summer of 4 Ft. 2".
  • The last time a character escaped with an excuse about going to the restroom occurred in "Homie the Clown".
    • It was also referenced in The Ned-liest Catch as Edna escaped the prison and the other teachers thought she went to the bathroom.
  • The last time Snake had the tables turned on him occurred in "'Tis the Fifteenth Season".
  • The last episode to feature a montage where a modern work of art is spread to the public with a classical music piece playing was "Homer The Whopper".
  • The song played in the credits is an "A cappella" cover of the theme song, made by the YouTube user mmckaig.
  • Surprisingly, everyone has moved back to Springfield after the previous episode, At Long Last Leave, aired.


  • The phone wire wasn't shown until Homer checked it.
  • The first part of the episode is set on March 18, as shown by the calendar held up by Lisa at the beginning of the episode. However, a flyer for I, Carumba: The Nightmare World of El Barto states that the dates of the art gallery show are March 11 - August 15, a week before the start of the episode. Bearing in mind, Bart chose to become a graffiti artist after Marge's birthday on the 19th and approximately two days passed between Bart becoming a graffiti artist and Shepard Fairey persuading Bart to open the art gallery.
  • Bart is seen using his right hand whilst spraying graffiti, but he is left handed.
