The Simpsons Halloween Special: Tree House of Horror - S2-E3

Trivia: In the section where the Simpson family is abducted by Kang and Kodos and are being given the tour of the ship, Bart and Lisa make a few wise-cracks, and either Kang or Kodos (Who can tell them apart?) said "Anyone here who has mastered intergalactic travel, raise your hand" and Kang and Kodos raise their hands. This is a joke by the animators, making fun of Alf Clausen, the composer of the music. To end arguments with other people working in the music department he says "Anyone who has composed a Grammy-winning record, raise your hand" and he raises his hand.

Itchy and Scratchy and Marge - S2-E9

Trivia: One of this episode's plots features outraged parents trying to prevent children from seeing the statue of Michelangelo's David because his penis is visible. In March 2023, a principal at a Tallahassee, Florida charter school was fired after parents complained about their children seeing images of the statue, deeming it to be pornographic.

Tree House of Horror V - S6-E6

Question: Homer travels back in time and causes changes by what he does in the past, like stepping on a bug. I once saw a movie with the same basic plot: some people travel back in time and are told to be careful not to disturb anything, but when they return to their time everything has changed. In the end they discover it was because they stepped on a butterfly. Does anyone know the name of this movie?

Answer: I'm not sure if this is the one you're thinking of, but an episode of "Ray Bradbury Theatre," called "A Sound of Thunder," dealt with a similar matter: a group of hunters travel back in time to hunt dinosaurs, only to find things have changed when they get back because someone stepped on a butterfly.
