Cultural references[edit]


  • Contrary to popular belief, 'N Sync did not provide the voices for Party Posse. Two members of another Lou Pearlman boy band, Natural, provided some of the voices -- Marc Terenzi for Nelson and Michael "J" Horn for Milhouse.
  • This episode aired seven months before 9/11. During the scene in New York, the World Trade Center is briefly visible.
  • In the episode "The City of New York vs. Homer Simpson", Bart visits the office of MAD magazine and Alfred E. Neuman leans out of an office door and demands a progress report on an article named "New Kids on the Blecch", the title of this episode.
    • Both episodes involve New York City, MAD magazine, and the phrase "New Kids on the Blecch".
  • The way 'Yvan eht nioj' is pronounced in this episode would, if played backwards, actually sound like "in te nævi" and not like "Join the Navy". The characters pronounce the words the way they are spelled backwards, rather than by pronouncing the actual phonetic sounds backwards.
  • When the singers sing "Yvan eht nioj", they hold the last syllable, "oj". When played backwards, they hold the last syllable of "Join the Navy", "vy".
  • Except (obviously) for her brother Bart, all of the Party Posse members have at one time or another been romantically linked to Lisa.


  • A few seconds after L.T. Smash flips the switch on the aircraft carrier from "DE-COMMISSION" to "COMMISSION", the switch is again visible, but instead reads "MUSEUM" instead of "DE-COMMISSION" and "SHIP" instead of "COMMISSION".
  • The Yendor doll in Lisa's room appears to have shoes, however they have toes as if Yendor were barefoot.
