Behind the Laughter[edit]

Mufasa is a character from the film The Lion King. His voice in the movie was provided by James Earl Jones, but by Harry Shearer in the episode.

Mufasa's line, "You must avenge my death, Kimba... I mean, Simba", is a reference to the often-repeated but unfounded claims that The Lion King was plagiarised from the 1960s' animated series, Kimba the White Lion.
