It first appeared in the Dirty Harry episode, where the Nerd complains how the crowbar can be disposable after being used once. The Nerd wonders why there are disposable crowbars and wonders if they're actually made of crows. While he's saying this, an image is shown of a garbage full of crowbars while one crowbar transforms into a crow and starts cawing.
During the parody segment of "Mmm Mmm Mmm Mmm", one lyric says the Nerd would rather smash his balls with a Crow-bar, rather than play the Crash Dummies game. The Crow-Bar is shown singing the lyric.
The Crow-Bar appears briefly as a cameo during the opening theme song toward the end.
