Site visitor Bob alerted us to the existence of an episode with a Rhode Island reference; eferruci came up with the episode title, "The Odd Candidate" (S5E7, aired October 24, 1974); and Len filled us in on the specifics:

Felix has persuaded Oscar to run for city council and, as part of the campaign, has arranged for Oscar to appear on a Saturday morning TV show on which old horror movies are shown. The host of the show is a Dracula knock-off played by Guy Marks who spends most of his time between commercials in a coffin. After one commercial break during a movie called, "The Monster That Ate Rhode Island," he sits up enthusing about the picture. And then he says, "Didn't you just love the part where he spits out Providence?"

Thanks, guys!
