Goofs

When the older, male judge character is introduced in The Simpsons: Bart Gets Hit by a Car, he is referred to as Judge Moulton. In all other appearances and source books he is called Judge Snyder.


Crazy Credits

In the episode "The Old Man and the Key" the closing credits are a parody of the ending of The Beverly Hillbillies (1962), with the Simpsons standing in front of a doorway waving at the audience, while banjo music plays. When the Gracie Films logo appears, Lisa is heard saying, in a hillbilly accent, "This has been a Gracie Films Presentation, y'all".
