References to Fantasia on The Simpsons[edit]

Picture Season Episode number Episode name Reference
Flanders as Tchernobog.png 5 86 "Treehouse of Horror IV" When Homer claims to be smarter than Flanders the Devil, Flanders transforms into Chernabog the Devil from the "Night on Bald Mountain" segment, complete with the same musical score.
6 104 "Bart of Darkness" As Bart uses his telescope to watch space he sees several things which he deems to be "boring". One of them is the circle of stars which opens the Rite of Spring segment in Fantasia.
Scratchtasia.png 6 107 "Itchy & Scratchy Land" The "Scratchtasia" segment spoofs the "Sorcerer's Apprentice" segment.
10 221 "Simpsons Bible Stories" Nelson's angry appearance from the rubble of his tower mimicks the scene where Tchernobog the Devil throws his hands in the air in the "Night at Bald Mountain" segment. The background music even quotes the same music.
Homer's Evolution.png 18 394 "Homerazzi" Homer's Evolution couch gag is a direct parody of the "Rite of Spring" segment in Fantasia. Particularly the scenes with the cells multiplying, Homer swimming around like a fish nearly grabbed by an octopus, going on land as an amphibian, the T-Rex fighting a stegosaur, dinosaurs driven to extinction until there are only skeletons around,... The camera angles are similar too.
17 373 "Kiss Kiss Bang Bangalore" During the final musical sequence a monkey is seen swinging an elephant around by its trunk. This is very similar to the final dance sequence in "The Dance of the Hours" in which some crocodiles do the same with much larger elephants.
23 503 "Them, Robot" When Mr. Burns' robots are introduced, "Night on Bald Mountain" is being played in the background.
Fland Canyon Cough Gag.png 27 593 "Fland Canyon" The couch gag spoofs various Disney movies, with Bart taking on the role of Mickey Mouse in "The Sorcerer's Apprentice" sequence from Fantasia. He creates a magical tide, just like Mickey did in the film.
