Simpsons Did It!: “Treehouse Of Horror II”

the-simpsons

We’re back to a Simpsons annual tradition, and they’re still actually using a framing sequence and Marge warning parents about the episode’s content.

Marge’s warning is rather quaint considering they don’t even kill any characters off in these things…yet.

What legacy will we leave behind?  How will people remember us?  Can we control how the world will see us in future generations?

That’s some heady stuff for Homer Simpson.

Simpsons Did It!: “Bart Gets Hit By A Car”

the-simpsons

Mr. Burns is, at heart, an evil billionaire who has no idea that his own views on what is right and wrong are not shared by, oh, anybody.  Completely lacking in empathy, Burns will contemplate cutting a check for $100 to cover, well, not much after hitting a child with a car, and even then he doesn’t seem to recognize anything resembling a decent human emotion.

But you know what?  Lack of decent morals are hardly unique to Burns when it comes to the people of Springfield.  If there’s a difference, its that Burns rarely if ever learns a lesson about being a better person.  He also rarely has to.

Simpsons Did It!: “Two Cars In Every Garage And Three Eyes On Every Fish”

the-simpsons

Look, let’s just get the obvious out of the way.  The idea of a billionaire with a distinctive hairline deciding to run for high office for possibly egotistical or greedy purposes and somehow gaining a lot of support due to cynical manipulation of the average voter…nah, that’s just too unbelievable.

By the by, in this episode, Mr. Burns runs for governor of whatever state they all live in.

the-simpsons

Does it bother Homer Simpson that he’s a bald man?  Apparently it does.

Does it bother Homer Simpson that he’s a fat man?  That not so much.
