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".
