Al's singing the Psycho Dad theme:
Who's gonna ride into the sun?
Who's the man with the itchy gun?
Who's the man who kills for fun?
Psycho Dad, Psycho Dad, Psycho Dad.

Marcy's Psycho Dad parody:
Who's the guy whose show is done?
Whose TV hero's on the run?
Who'll be watching VH1?
Loser Al, Loser Al, Loser Al.

General note: this two-parter was originally scheduled for early season eight (1993), but there was a big discussion about TV violence in US Congress and Government at that time. Therefore it was moved to season nine where it was produced eventually.

Influences: The episode title is inspired by the line "I want my MTV" in the song "Money for Nothing" by the Dire Straits. For the "John 3:16" sign see episode 0809.

Kellyisms: "Comme ci, comme di" instead of "comme ci, comme ça".

Transcript: Available at Married with Children... All Things Episodic.
