Cultural References

  • The title of this episode is an obvious parody of the film Mr. Smith Goes to Washington, which was also parodied in "Mr. Lisa Goes to Washington".
  • Some of the photoshopped images of Krusty feature him as: Neil Armstrong, the soldiers at Iwo Jima, the Tank Man, and Jim Leavelle, the Dallas police detective escorting Lee Harvey Oswald through the basement of the Dallas police department when Oswald was shot and killed.
  • Mayor Quimby's quip about his regretting building his lover an opera house after hearing her voice for the first time was a reference to Citizen Kane in Rosebud, specifically his making a similar mistake.
  • In Krusty's campaign commercial, the voiceover saying "The man from funny" is a parody of an ad for Bill Clinton in 1992, where Clinton was a the man "From a town called Hope."
