Both homer and Bender met god under similar circumstances could be a connection.

In "How Hermes requesitioned his groove back", after Hermes musical number, Zoidberg attempt to start up his own tune, but theres no music and he quits. I think this has been done on the simpsons, maybe more then once.

Something similar happened to Professor Frink at the end of 22 Short Films About Springfield, right?

Yeah, those were similar jokes. 'Cept Frink was cut off because he was running late, whereas Zoidberg was cut off in an act of gratuitous cruelty.  big grin

Both "Bart After Dark" and "Large Marge" had a full-length song followed by an aborted attempt at a second song.

this would be a good thread if people stopped nit-picking. we can all tell when someone is stretching...

plus people seem to be going out of their way to find references rather than actually noticing genuine ones. perhaps before people post here they can reflect on whether or not they have manufactured their reference.

some things mentioned here are brilliant btw

I think that The Simpsons has covered so many diverse topics, threads could be made on jokes made in The Simpsons and any show you care to mention.

Actually, Gunter said he was going to business school. But it's still a similar joke, so have a biscuit.

We all know that numerous Futurama writers made cameos in "A Bicyclops Built for Two" and "I Dated a Robot" in the "on-line" scenes.  This is also something of a hold-over from the Simpsons, when the writers would appear as the writers on Itchy and Scratchy.

Out of curiousity, David X. Cohen claimed he appeared on the Simpsons, and was voiced by Harry Shearer.  When did he appear, and where?

Probably as one of the I&S writers, but I'm not sure which episode.  Maybe "Itchy & Scratchy & Poochie," since that would have been from the right time period.

In the episode "The Last Temptation of Homer", Charlie, the nuclear plant's dangerous emmissions supervisor, is sucked up from Burn's office in a glass tube and spit out in a Hindu(?) temple in India.  Same basic concept as the tubes in Futurama (which they carefully introduced in the pilot and then more or less forgot about).

This guy impressed me greatly, and I am not so easily impressed... Look! A blue car!

Which transfers into family guy as:

That's for sure.  I don't have the names of the episodes in which they occured (too many years of Simpsons episodes to review), but Fry and Homer have both used the "Everyone thinks I'm stupid, but I proved them" line.  Not that I'm complaining, mind you; I think it's one of the funniest lines I've heard, and I always chuckle when I hear it.  That's one of the coolest things about The Simpsons & Futurama; both have (or had) great writers who write hilarious, intelligent jokes...

In 'Simpsons Bible Stories'(Lisa's dream), Chief Wiggum tells Bart to scrub the toilets so clean he could eat off them, then tells him to hurry up because it's almost lunch time.

In 'Roswell That Ends Well', the General tells Enos to scrub the toilets so hard he could eat off of them, then says that he is planning to do so.

I see some similarity between the following:

Bart at St.Patrics day when he is pushing himself forward in the crowd with a green horn of some sort.
and:
Bender when he is pushing himself forward with that train-grill through that crowd on freedom day.

It might be hard to recognize now just be reading, but look at the scenes.

Burns and Bender both use cow catchers to mauver or should I say plow through crowds.

Does Burns wear the cowcatcher like Bender, or does he make Smithers wear it?

Mr.Burns put the cowcatcher on his car I think. When he needs to get though crowds of people on foot he uses a stun gun. Sorry but I forgot what episode or episodes these are from.

It would be much more fun being bender, Burns is too physically frail to take real advantage of his wealth and influence, well in a fun way anyhow!

the same moral dilemas stands for me too though!

Oh just remembered, there is this episode where Homer is a submarine captain, and fires off the real captain though the torpedo slot, just like benders gets fired away into the pirate ship in ep 320 (Godfellas).

Dont remember the name of the Simpson episode.

"Simpson Tide"

Both the reason for the character being in the tube and the consequences on the rest of the episode differ, though.

I know these first two quotes are from years ago, but I like correcting things  tongue

"TRESPASSERS WILL BE SHOT"

Also, both these episodes are the THIRD of the production season, and they contain singing (Marge + The Punch/Wine, The Elves Song). Anybody else notice these?

The "Simpsons" episode is actually 7G04 "There's No Disgrace Like Home", which is the 4th episode of the season, so that discredits the last paragraph of the post.

As above, I''m not sure if this is how the joke goes exactly but in Dead Putting Society, Homer tells Bart a story about "The Lion and Hercules" - which Homer gets the ending horribly wrong, and there's no good point at all.
In My Three Suns, Fry tells Leela the story of "The Octopus and the Grasshopper", again with no moral. I just thought the way they were delivered was kind of similar, as of the general structure.

It's in "Blood Feud", not "Dead Putting Society".

"Monty Can't Buy Me Love", which is my personal least favorite 'Simpsons' episode ever   wink. It's also the same episode that someone mentioned earlier in the thread, when Homer gets distracted by the blue car.
