History

Moonstrong

Krusty the Clown cited Armstrong's arrival on the Moon as one of the few significant events in television history.Armstrong had a booth at the Springfield Bi-Mon-Sci-Fi-Con, but no one wanted his autograph or even cared that he had actually been to the Moon. Annoyed by the convention attendees' indifference, Armstrong came close to firing his agent in a take on his famous "one small step ..." line ("This is one small step ... to firing your ass!").

In a flashback scene, Homer remembered the television coverage when Armstrong set foot on the Moon, and Armstrong's voice was heard as he delivered his famous "One small step ..." line. When Krusty was married to Holly Hippy, he prevented her from seeing the moon landing as he was jealous of Armstrong.

After learning that Maggie had her heart set on having the moon, Homer became determined to give it to her. Barney told Homer that he could buy the moon from him, because he won it from Neil Armstrong in a dice game. Homer then bought the moon from Barney for a beer and gave it to Maggie.

Non-canon

When Homer start killing celebrities so the advertising agencies can use them in commercials for free he kills Neil Armstrong. When Homer sat down on the carousel at Krustyland, he said that they are the first people "to ever ride this baby", and they are like "that space guy who did that moon thing!". Lisa asked if he meant Neil Armstrong. Homer replied that he meant Chewbacca.

Behind the Laughter

Dan Castellaneta provided the voice of Neil Armstrong in "Mayored to the Mob". Archive audio of Armstrong's famous line, "One small step for man, one giant leap for mankind", was used in "Itchy & Scratchy: The Movie" and "Worst Episode Ever".
