Two Cars in Every Garage and Three Eyes on Every Fish

Date:
This Television Episode refers to Citizen Kane
Several parts of the episode are inspired by the 1941 film Citizen Kane, all with Mr. Burns in the role of Charles Foster Kane.[3] The campaign rally scene where Burns speaks in front of a giant poster of himself is a reference to a scene from that film.[10] The scene where Burns trashes the Simpson family's dining room after the dinner is similar to the scene in which Kane destroys his ex-wife's room.
