Cultural references[edit]

Queen Elizabeth I[edit]

Snow White[edit]

  • Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs is parodied in the second segment. However, Snow White (portrayed by Lisa) is forced to rename all the dwarfs to satisfy the legal demands of the Blue-haired lawyer.
  • When Snow White flees from the wicked queen's threat, she comes across a gingerbread house and Grandma's house (referencing the folk tales Hansel and Gretel and Little Red Riding Hood) before she finds the dwarfs' house.
  • Snow White complains about the dwarfs' beds being too hard and too soft, referencing Goldilocks and the Three Bears. Unlike Goldilocks, however, Snow White settles for the soft bed.
  • Unlike in the Disney movie, where she dies by falling off a cliff, the way the Evil Queen dies in Lisa's retelling of Snow White is very reminiscent of Scar's death at the end of The Lion King, right down to the shot of her being killed by forest animals being shown in shadow very much like Scar when he is killed by hyenas.

Macbeth[edit]

The Fountainhead[edit]

Trivia[edit]

  • This is the only episode Bart doesn't appear in (unless you count the opening sequence) to date. However, Nancy Cartwright, his voice actress voiced Ralph Wiggum on this episode despite Bart's abcence.
  • This episode is the second anthology episode to have 4 short stories instead of 3 (the first was "Simpsons Bible Stories").
  • This is the fourth episode in the show's history where Maggie has spoken and the second where she's done so directly.
  • Selma appears without Patty in this episode.
  • This episode was viewed by 5.15 million viewers making it the least watched episode in the shows history. Nearly a year later, it was beaten by "Million Dollar Maybe".
  • In the Macbeth parody, no one seems to care that Marge says "Macbeth" in the theater, in spite of the taboo on speaking the name. However, the "Macbeth curse" provides exemptions for speaking the name during rehearsals and performances of the play, so Marge's working as a laundress in support of the production may also be considered to grant her a free pass.
  • Maggie also duplicates a van Gogh painting in the comic story Maggie's Crib 26.
