They referenced it once before (from what I remember), The Lesser of Two Evils.

Quote from: Gorky
Skimming this thread just now, I am reminded of all
the talk about its similarities to "Bart the Mother." The
commentary for this episode is definitely the one I'm most
interested in hearing, if only to see if DXC (or anybody else)
acknowledges any aspects of the plot that may have been a tad bit derivative.
For Gorky (any anyone else interested):

About 7 minutes into the episode this appears in the commentary:
 
DXC: I wanted to say on a personal note I was a little worried about doing this episode because I wrote an episode of The Simpsons called "Bart the Mother" where Bart accidentally sort of kills a mother bird and then he feels guilt and raises the egg and it hatches into a lizard which had parasitically laid its egg in the nest. So it's got a lot of similarities to this, of course then he didn't hang out with the lizard and repopulate, so add a lot of differences but ultimately we decided if we, like every other show, started worrying about shows The Simpsons has done, even if we wrote them, we'll never be able to do anything.

I still absolutely love the Farmer's Market, and am still going to greet everyone I know with "Hello Tiny Man!" regardless of their height or gender.

Though I always spelt it "Snoo Snoo" and will refuse to spell it any other way.

I think what DXC said is fair enough, especially since I've never seen Bart the Mother. The episode felt Futurama-y and overall I'd consider it a success.

I had noticed the similarity, but I was never really bothered. I justify it like DXC does- they took it in a totally different direction, and frankly similarities are bound to happen when they're both Matt Groening shows.

Incidentally, I read in an interview that DXC enjoys South Park and likes the way they tell their stories... wink

Oh, I agree; I actually hadn't noticed the similarities until Josh pointed them out. This is easily one of the best episodes of 6B, regardless of how original the story itself may or may not be.

I didn't think that DXC had some 'splainin' to do or anything--but it's nice that the staff was at least aware of the fact that Egg Man and "Bart the Mother" have some story points in common. Thanks for sharing that, Randi.

For some reason, I always want to quote Futurama. I don't know how I remember all these great lines.

I loved Mr. Peppy, and his adorable hideousness. Especially when farted fire in the dog's face. I was hysterical.

This is quite a Futurama-y episode. It contains many of the cool futuristic gadgets that many new episodes lack. Stuff like the space drive-thru, hologram book, and rocket darts were all great.

Why can't all episodes have cool stuff like that?

That's one of the reasons I loved this episode. I would even give it a 10/10. That's how much I loved it...big grin

It just had an awesome plot and lots of great jokes!The only bad done was the Dwayne Johnson reference. (That's another bad pop-culture reference..hmpf)

But this episode was just solid gold for me! big grin

i just watched this episode again last night. I love how it suddenly became a spoof of Scooby Doo in the end of the episode. Jinkies!

I agree, as most do, that there were too many pop culture references in Season 6. However, I quite enjoyed this one. Dwayne "The Rock" "The Tooth Fairy" Johnson. Hehehehehe....

The Dwayne Johnson reference was the only part of the episode that seemed bad to me. It was purely filler, and had no reason to be put in there! no no

It wasn't filler. It was a joke line used to explain that the tough guy (Mr. Peppy) is actually very peaceful while also making fun of the fact that Dwayne Johnson used to be known only as The Rock, then later Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson and eventually just Dwayne Johnson while playing such roles as The Tooth Fairy. Maybe I appreciated the joke a bit more because I watched that transformation in my teen years and would equally like to make fun of him for it.

As evidenced by the fact that you refer to him as Dwayne Johnson and not The Rock.

This was a great episode. It was surprising and nice to see one that was actually original and not based off some reference or pop culture thing.

8.5/10

This might be the most forgetable episode ever. I'm not kidding, whenever I'm not watching it, I won't ever remember it exists.
