Trivia: The entire premise of this episode, where a man in turn-of-the-century garb sings and charms his way into the townspeople's hearts as part of an elaborate con, is a takeoff of the musical, "The Music Man" (1962). Even the tunes of the songs they sing are similar.Krista
Continuity mistake: This is a mistake for the introduction from seasons 2-20 (1991-2009). When Homer screams, he turns round. You see this in a wide shot. There are no boxes to the right of the door in the garage. However, two just appear out of thin air when he runs through the garage. (00:01:50)
