The Flaming Moe

Two Bad Neighbors


In 1992, President Bush was quoted as saying that he wanted “to make American families a lot more like The Waltons and a lot less like The Simpsons.”

Of course, the creator of The Simpsons, Matt Groening took this as an opportunity to poke fun at the former president. He recast Bush as an old grumpy neighbor, constantly at war with Homer.


Summer of 4 Ft. 2


If ever there was a perfect example of yin and yang it would be Bart and Lisa Simpson. Bart is a wild child and plays by his own rules. Lisa is intelligent and always does what she’s told.

In the episode “Summer of 4 Ft. 2” Lisa decides to reinvent herself. She ditches her nerdy behavior and begins to dumb herself down. It works. She is instantly popular with a group of beach kids. However, Bart becomes jealous of her new popularity and tries to ruin it.


Lisa's Substitute
