The Simpsons Road Rage/References

Wikisimpsons - The Simpsons Wiki

Cultural references[edit]

  • If the player picks up Captain McCallister and takes a long time to reach his intended destination, one of his possible comments is "Call me Ishmael. And late." This is a reference to the opening line of the novel Moby-Dick.


  • Although he appears very frequently driving Mr. Burns' limosine, Smithers does not speak at any point in the game.
  • In printed ads for The Simpsons Road Rage, it depicted a drawn panel similar to a comic where the entire town is in calamity, with Marge, acting as a passenger to Homer in a convertible, tells him with fear that he's driving like a maniac, and Homer responding nonchalantly that "Driving's just a suggestion. Like pants."
  • Mr. Plow is treated as a separate character from Homer.
  • Due to the fact that the game is so similar to Sega's Crazy Taxi, Sega sued Fox. The two settled out of court for an undisclosed amount of money.
  • The game takes advantage of the date system incorporated into the games console by providing holiday-themed characters on certain dates.
    • Marge - Thanksgiving (fourth Thursday of November)
    • Bart - Halloween (October 31)
    • Apu - Christmas (December 25)
    • Krusty - New Years (January 1)
  • In the save game menu in the PS2 browser, "Dancin' Homer" represents the save file for this game.
  • Early builds of the game suggest that Principal Skinner, Moleman and Jasper were going to be playable.
  • The scene at the end involving Kang and Kodos is not present in the PS2 version. This may have been because of the PS2 version's earlier release date.
