The episode caused a bit of stir in the Puerto Rican community, causing NBC to issue an apology and never showing the episode on the network again. The controversy involved Kramer and the flag-burning sequence. This episode is the only episode that was not initially included in the syndication package. In the summer of 2002 the episode has started appearing, with the flag-burning sequence intact. So if you missed it when it aired the first time, you will now have a chance to see it again.
