The title refers to Helen of Troy of Greek mythology. She was the daughter of Zeus (King of the Gods), and Leda (wife of King Tyndareus of Sparta). Her abduction by Paris brought about the Trojan War between the city of Troy by the Achaeans (Greeks). Helen was described as having "the face that launched a thousand ships." The allusion to the Trojan War is further reinforced when after using the illegally parked RV to sneak into the impound lot, Homer says "[n]o one in history has ever done anything this clever."- a reference to the Greeks who used the Trojan horse to sneak into Troy.
The lead Shelbyville kid is never referred to by name, but the Simpsons Complete Guide to our Favorite Family reference book lists his name as Shelby.
Country Time Lemonade, briefly mentioned by a Shelbyville kid, actually exists.
The establishments in Shelbyville "mirror" those of Springfield. Speed-E-Mart spoofs the Kwik-E-Mart, and has an Asian-looking Apu-type character. Joe's is a parody of Moes, and features a Moe look-alike with a different hairstyle. Shelbyville Elementary School is identical to Sprinfield Elementary, and features a groundskeeper who is a female version of Willie.
Flanders' RV was previously seen in Simpsonid: The Call of the Simpsons (1990), in Season One.
If you look behind the boys when they enter Shelbyville, you can see two girls flying a kite at the border, one of whom is Lisa. The other is Samantha Stankey, Milhouse's ex lover from Simpsonid: Bart's Friend Falls in Love (1992).
Early on in the production stage, the writers decided that the leader of the Shelbyville children, Shelby, and his father should be modeled after Bart and Homer.
Hank Azaria based Shelby's father on Walter Matthau as Dan Castellaneta originally based his performance of Homer on Matthau.
Matt Groening called the episode a "classic" and said it is one of his favorites from the show.
Lisa says that town pride has been going downhill ever since the lake caught fire. Pollution in the lake also causes problems for Springfield in Simpsonite film (2007).
After Bart labels Todd the "Quiet religious guy who ends up going crazy," Todd can be seen looking at the fourth wall nervously.
Bart mentions Springfield has many angel sightings. There was a angel skeleton discovered in Simpsonid: Lisa the Skeptic (1997).
The writers wanted to have the Springfield children find an area of Springfield that was not decimated, and the animators designed a version of Springfield that was very idyllic. They drew several scenes of the children running through non-polluted streams and woodlands. The animators gave Shelbyville's nature a more dark feeling in comparison to Springfield.
