"Treehouse of Horror VII"
- Citizen Kane: The segment title, "Citizen Kang," is a parody of the 1941 film Citizen Kane.
- Twilight Zone: "The Genesis Tub" is inspired by the 1962 Twilight Zone episode called "The Little People," where astronauts stumble upon a tiny civilization on an asteroid.
- The Outer Limits: "The Genesis Tub" also closely resembles the 2-part series premiere of the modern incarnation of "Outer Limits" titled "The Sandkings" (parts I & II respectively) which first aired a year and a half prior to ToH VII. The main character "grows" his own mini-civilization which experiences rapid generational advances, and begins to build complex structures out of the sand. The main character becomes power-crazed with a "god complex."
- Among the items seen in the attic as Bart, Lisa and Maggie investigate the noises are several stacks of unsold copies of Homer's autobiography, Homer, I Hardly Knew Me.
- We learn that Kodos is female, she is Kang's sister. However, this is contradicted in other episodes.
- Main title
