S05E04 "Rosebud" - During Smithers's announcement at the event held to celebrate Mr Burns's birthday, it is mentioned, but the dog is never seen. Smithers: "I have some sad news to report, a small puppy, not unlike Lassie, has just been run over in the parking lot." (The gag is that he announces this sad news immediately before Homer's comedy act, which contributes to the audience's negative reception of it.)

Various Treehouse of Horror segments include spiders, and the beginning of the episode Mobile Homer features several spiders dropping onto Homer's face when he picks up a box in the garage.

The family cat is named Snowball II because the previous Snowball died. In "I (Annoyed Grunt) Bot", Snowball II dies, as do two other cats, but the fifth cat gets renamed Snowball II and looks just like the original one, so you can avoid the episode and pretend it never existed.

We hear that Bart once attempted to cover up the death of Milhouse's goldfish by telling him the fish never existed. It didn't work - Milhouse is pretty confident that his owning a goldfish bowl is proof that he also had a fish.

In a Fourth of July episode, Mr. Burns is forcing everyone to work very hard for him. He tells one man(not a main character) to come over to him and break his own leg. It’s obvious when it’s abt to happen bc he’s holding a hammer right above his leg. So, just skip over that part.

There are a couple of scenes where Homer is showering or bathing. The two I can remember off the top of my head are 1) Bart learns he can make Homer sing a song by playing with the bathroom taps while he's in the shower, and 2) Bart whomps Homer with a chair while he's in the bath.

There's a scene of Homer running into Bart's room, shouting, "BART-YOU-WANNA-SEE-MY-NEW-CHAINSAW-AND-HOCKEY-MASK?!", but that's actually a parody of jumpscares.

One Treehouse of Horror skit has Homer communicating through farts. He also drools a lot, though I'm not sure that qualifies as spitting.

In Season 20, Episode 20 Homer wants to lose weight, so he asks Apu if there's anything that could make him throw up. Apu pours chunky buttermilk from 1961 into a cup for Homer to drink. He tells him not to chew the chunks, but Homer chews them anyways and Apu counts down from three. It shows the store from outside and you see the vomit on the window. Also, Season 16, E 15 at 4:12. You don't see the action, you just see the result on the ground. It's all played for laughs because it takes place in the future, but if you wanna be safe, just skip to 4:22. Also in season 13, episode 21 at 3:21. It's a caterpillar, so it might not trigger you, but the noises were pretty gross to be honest. Just skip ahead to 3:25. Season 18, Episode 8 at 14:45; its baby vomit so it's not too bad, and it's in black and white. Just skip to 14:55. S12 Ep16. It’s not bad, just weird(it’s on the ground while willie’s cleaning it. S32 Ep22 when Moe is talking abt the side effects of anti-booze. It’s just audio.

Do you know what copaganda even means? Copaganda means showing police in a positive light when they do illegal or immoral things. The Springfield PD are a bunch of incompetent losers. This isnt copaganda in any sense of the word.

Flashbacks show the kids being born in the hospital. In "Large Marge", Marge gets surgery and is shown at hospital. In "Homer Simpson in: 'Kidney Trouble'", Homer, Grandpa, and Ned are shown at the hospital. Comic Book Guy goes to the hospital in "Worst Episode Ever". "'Round Springfield" takes place mostly in the hospital.

there are mentions, though I’ve never seen a character actually harm themselves. in ‘King Leer’, Moe’s father gives him one of the family mattress stores. Moe, with tears in his eyes, states ‘this is a dream I had buried so deep, no amount of self-harm could ever carve it out’.

Flashbacks show the births of all three Simpson kids, which might be scary if you're afraid of the birth process itself; however, if you're just concerned about inappropriate content, everyone's shame is covered.

krusty the clown is jewish and his identity is often the butt end of the joke. there is also a scene where he realizes he never had a bar mitzvah and responds by saying "i thought i was a self hating jew but it turns out im just a plain old antisemite", a german actor who is walking by stops and says to krusty "we have so much to talk about."

It's a bit of a mixed bag. In the series premiere, Homer is exposed as a mall Santa trying to get extra money for Christmas. In other episodes, Santa is seen as a real character.

In the updated opening sequence used from the Season 20 episode Take My Life, Please" onwards, Homer Simpson is hit by the family car as Marge is pulling it into the garage, although the scene is very cartoonish and he is not hurt in any way.

One couch gag involves Marge and Maggie falling into a lake and drowning. They survive, though, because couch gags are not canon.
