Cultural references[edit]


  • Kent Brockman's line "I, for one, welcome our new insect overlords." has become a meme and idiom, being used in popular culture.
  • James Taylor mentions that he and Art Garfunkel created a total vacuum outside their country house using an air-compressor to rid themselves of an ant problem. This is impossible unless you could enclose the house in a chamber of some sort.



  • In "Krusty Gets Kancelled", Luke Perry lands in a Pillow Factory, which is then destroyed. In "Deep Space Homer", Barney bounces off the roof of the same pillow factory, fully intact, one season later.
  • When the second photo of the carbon rod is taken on a magazine cover, Homer's space suit glove disappears.
  • Buzz Aldrin's hair changed from brown to white in one shot.
  • Homer seems not to figure out that Planet of the Apes is actually about the Earth until this episode. Yet in "I Married Marge", when Marge asks him if he's thought about the future, he asks, "You mean, when apes will rule the earth?" This might imply he'd already understood the ending of Planet of the Apes before this episode.
  • Homer is the only person NOT to win the "worker of the week" award—but he was the only person other than Smithers to win "Employee of the Month"!
