Simpsons News — Posted 20 Sep, 2005 by Scott

The noise of early morning construction next door is keeping the family awake; there is a new stamp museum under construction. The family successfully leads a protest that gets the stamp museum moved to the site of the old graveyard; the old graveyard in turn is relocated next to the Simpson home. The site of the graveyard outside her window makes Lisa uncomfortable and scared late one night she runs to her parent’s bed for comfort. They try to get her back into her own bed, by showing her that they can sleep in her bed. When that doesn’t work, they resort to the help of a psychiatrist and she offers them some costly advice. Meanwhile Lisa, who has always had to fend for her self, decides to spend the night in the cemetery and conquer her fears. Lisa gets knocked unconscious and has a hallucination helps her to deal with fear. Continue...

Couch: In claymation-style there are a number of clay balls that roll into the living room and eventually wind up on the couch and render into the family members plus one. That plus one is Gumby (of Gumby and Pokey fame) and he waves at the family.

Where the Wild Things Are:
The book "The Land of the Wild Beasts" is a very close take on Maurice Sendak’s children's book "Where the Wild Things Are."

The Girl Who Slept Too Little
The Title "The Girl Who Slept Too Little" is a take on the 1997 movie titled "The Man Who Knew Too Little" starring Bill Murray; it's also possibly a take on the 1956 movie "The Man Who Knew Too Much" starring James Stewart and Doris Day.

Note: We are introduced to Willie's cousin Grave-digger Billy.
