Tree House of Horror VI - S7-E6

Trivia: In the segment Homer3, you can see at one point in the background of the 3-D world a tea kettle. This is a reference by the animators to the first object ever digitally animated into 3-D, a kettle. You can also see the number 733, which if you look on a normal phone it spells out PDF, the software they used to make the sequence. There's a special on these on the 7th season DVD's.

Bart Sells His Soul - S7-E4

Trivia: Bart changes the lyrics to Iron Butterfly's "In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida" to "In the Garden of Eden." This was in fact the original title of the song, but because Ron Bushy had difficulty listening through a headset, he misinterpreted the title. It was not due to Doug Ingle being drunk while singing, as the popular rumor has it.

Radioactive Man - S7-E2

Trivia: In this episode, Wolfcastle says "Real acid?" and starts to have doubts about filming the scene. In The Terminator, Arnie (who Wolfcastle is a parody of) said the exact same thing when he learned that the crew were going to pour acid on his clothing for a smoke effect.

Two Bad Neighbors - S7-E13

Trivia: When the episode was written, the show's writers were unaware there was a real George Bush, Jr (e.g. George W. Bush). The intended joke was that, in one of his usual moments of idiocy, Homer had invented a fake son.
