"Gnome in your Home" is a parody of "Elf on the Shelf".
This is the last episode to be aired in 2016.
Sophie Krustofsky plays a major role in this episode since season 12's "Insane Clown Poppy" in this case, for second time. Natasha Lyonne provides the voice for Sophie instead of Drew Barrymore. Rabbi Hyman Krustofsky also makes another appearance when Krusty is dreaming while in the frozen lake.
Sideshow Bob makes a very brief non-speaking cameo holding up a sign saying: "Die Clown" when Krusty is trapped in the frozen lake.
