    • The Price Is Right
      The episode's plot, where Bart insists on the elephant as his prize in a radio call-in contest, is very similar to an actual incident that occurred on the 1950s version of The Price is Right. A contestant had won a grand piano, and as an extra bonus, he was awarded an elephant. Producer Bob Stewart meant for the elephant to symbolize "extra ivory"; the real prize was $4,000 cash. However, the contestant (a Texas farmer) insisted on getting the pacyderm he felt he was due, and – much like the KBBL guys with Bart – Stewart was forced to arrange delivery of an elephant from Kenya. The whole story is related on "The Bill Cullen Homepage" at the More Info link.
