      Franklin walking over to his fence and asking his neighbor, Wilson, advice is a nod to Home Improvement, which aired in the timeslot after The Critic on ABC. This episode also references the show at the end of the episode when Jay says hello to the people just tuning in for Home Improvement. This was one of the top-rated shows on ABC at the time and there was a lot of pressure on the show's creators to make The Critic as audience-friendly as Home Improvement.
