  • [PABF18] After Marge's car falls into the new Springfield sinkhole, Comic Book Guy describes the hole's size to Kent Brockman, comparing it to the Pit of Carkoon, "... where the Sarlacc ate Boba Fett," and to "... the Geonosis Battle Arena, where Mace Windu beheaded Jango Fett."

  • [SABF03] In Act II, Comic Book Guy visits the Simpsons' home to ask Homer for help finding something to wear for his date with Kumiko Nakamura. He admits that the best garment he has at the shop is Obi-Wan's robe, which isn't suitable since it was the garment worn by an order of "celibate knights."

  • [SABF03] In Act II, during Kumiko and Comic Book Guy's date montage, they listen to an Audio Books version of Cosmic Wars: The Crucifixion of Jim-Jam Bonks. This is another reference to some fans' disdain of the character Jar Jar Binks in The Phantom Menace.

  • [SABF05] While FBI agents work to stop the Cosmic Wars screening, playing is a scene within a Star Destroyer's hangar bay featuring a battle between Yoda and several Mandalorian warriors wearing armor of various colors.

  • [SC04] Mr. Burns employs Stormtrooper guards.
  • [SC12] A Stormtrooper guard is in the desert, parody of scene from "Star Wars."

  • [SC75] In the second story "And the Beatings Go On" (pg. 13, frame 2), a nerd asks Jimbo: "Who was the Captain of the U.S.S. Enterprise?" Jimbo answers "I don't know. Luke Skywalker?"
  • [SC75] In the third story "Truant or False" (pg. 20, frame 4), a fourth grade Skinner warns Homer: "Okay, but don't blame me if you get stuck in an asteroid field with a flying saucer shooting at you and don't know which button sends you into hyperspace." when Homer questions skipping school to stay at the arcade (a reference to the asteroid chase in The Empire Strikes Back).

  • Other Simpsons/Star Wars tidbits

    Some Simpsons-style Star Wars parodies have been buzzing around the 'net for some time now, and are available on various fansites. Some of the pictures fanart, others official.
    Bruce Gomes: Syndication promo (fall, 1993) In a commercial to promote reruns of The Simpsons, we see actual footage of Luke's X-wing entering the Death Star trench, with Bart animated into Luke's uniform and firing the shot that destroys the Death Star.
    A video cassette has been released in the UK called "Bart Wars." It apparently contains all the best Star Wars moments, although looking at the above list, you can be the judge of that. As you've probably guessed, it does contain AABF05.


  • "I Bent My Wookiee" ... Delivered unto the world by creator Matt Groening and his fellow executive producers James L. Brooks and Sam Simon in December, 1989 (after two years of short Simpson cartoons on The Tracey Ullman Show, which Brooks and Simon also produced), The Simpsons has become almost as popular and iconic as Star Wars itself, and it seems only right that these two powerful pop cultural phenomena have joined Forces on occasion, with The Simpsons slipping in occasional, hilarious Star Wars references... [More]

    Thanks to Dave Hall for bringing this to my attention.
