Trivia

Much of the inspiration for the episode came from news reports of bears roaming streets in Southern California around the time when the episode was in production. The Simpsons: Much Apu About Nothing (1996) said that when a bear swims in somebody's pool or goes in somebody's garbage can, it becomes a popular news item in California. Bill Oakley commented that the news reports often create an anti-bear hysteria, and that is one of the inspirations for the episode. See more »
