The Simpsons

Thirty Minutes Over Tokyo - S10-E23

Question: When the fish offers Bart 3 wishes, what is that a take off of?

Chosen answer: Pretty much any fairy tale where somebody gets offered wishes by a genie or other similar character. It's always three wishes (and, nine times out of ten, the last one gets used to undo the damage caused by the first two).
