Title Reference[edit]

Possible reference to "Dance of Death"?

On the Simpsons archive there is nothing that would indicate this link, so that means there is prabally no reference to "Dance of Death". Rhino131 22:38, 16 February 2007 (UTC)

Nose[edit]

Why is Santa's Little Helper's nose white in this episode? Ryan Holloway (talk) 22:37, 14 February 2008 (UTC)

First time non-Homer says d'oh[edit]

The article claims that this episode is the first time a non-Homer character says "d'oh," but Bart says D'oh in "Bart the Murderer." Is this a mistake? 24.71.226.121 (talk) 02:37, 22 March 2010 (UTC)

You're right. I have removed the sentence from the article. Thanks! Theleftorium 15:13, 22 March 2010 (UTC)

{{subst:#if:This article is in decent shape, but it needs more work before it becomes a Good Article.|


This article is in decent shape, but it needs more work before it becomes a Good Article.|}}

  1. Is it well written?
    A. The prose is clear and concise, and the spelling and grammar are correct:
    {{subst:#if:In the lead, "...the family starts to feel the strain of their sacrifices and begins treating him badly", with "begins", reads odd. Suggestion, maybe replace "starts" with "begins" and "begins" with "starts". In the Plot, "When Bart goes to Burns's" ---> "When Bart goes to Burns'". Question, about the plot, is "for example" needed? Just a question.

    Check.|}}
    B. All in-line citations are from reliable sources, including those for direct quotations, statistics, published opinion, counter-intuitive or controversial statements that are challenged or likely to be challenged, and contentious material relating to living persons—science-based articles should follow the scientific citation guidelines:

    It represents viewpoints fairly and without editorial bias, giving due weight to each:
    {{subst:#if:|{{{4com}}}|}}
  5. Is it stable?
    It does not change significantly from day to day because of an ongoing edit war or content dispute:
    {{subst:#if:|{{{5com}}}|}}
