The Crab with the Golden Claws
| The Crab with the Golden Claws
| Comic Information
When the Simpsons traveled to Ireland, Lisa mentioned that Ireland was on the forefront of Europe's "tech-boom". Bart mockingly added "In your face, Belgium!", whereupon Marge threatened Bart by saying "If you hate Belgium so much, maybe I should take your Tintins away!" This scared Bart, who clutched a copy of the book The Crab with the Golden Claws, promising he would be good.
Behind the Laughter
- Belgium was the home country of Tintin creator Hergé, which explains Marge's threat to take away Bart's Tintin books as punishment for disrespecting the country.
- The Crab with the Golden Claws is a real Tintin comic.
