Hail to the Cat is the name of a mental realm within a Simpsons comic in which the entire staff of Planet Express was trapped by the brain spawn. While the original plot of the comic involved Lisa Simpson's cat, Snowball II, being entered as a candidate for mayor, and inevitably winning, much of this story does not happen due to the presence of real people within the comic. The printing that was entered is a first edition, which affected the smell of the realm's air. Curiously, the reprint Fry was reading, and brought with him, changed to match the altered story the crew were experiencing.
- Hail to the Cat was first published in the year after it appeared within the plot of "Somewhere Over the Brain-bow!"
- Reprints of Simpsons Comics are the only non-pornographic comics printed in the 31st century.
- This issue is available, along with the crisis issues, in the hardback collection The Simpsons Futurama Crossover Crisis.
