Thou Shalt Not Doubt the Comprehensiveness of SNPP

Earlier today, when I was writing the post about the Al Jean quote, I watched the “hard core nudity” credits from “The 138th Episode Spectacular”.  I was trying to get a quick overview of nudity in the show and while I was aware that most of it would be nudity of the “male’s ass” variety (the go to nudity for comedy), I knew that wasn’t all of it.  One of the few that isn’t is this screen shot, ostensibly from Season 6’s “Grampa vs. Sexual Inadequacy”:

Grampa vs. Sexual Inadequacy4

But when I considered it for a moment I thought it looked a bit more nude than I expected.  So I went to the actual part from “Grampa vs. Sexual Inadequacy” and, lo and behold, here’s what I saw:

Grampa vs. Sexual Inadequacy2

First and foremost, way-to-go to Simpsons (from the before time, the long long ago) for sneaking that one past the censors.  Secondly, I suck for never noticing that before.  Thirdly, SNPP does not suck:

Benjamin Robinson writes, "If you look carefully, you’ll notice that another outtake slipped into the nudie montage at the end. The scene where Bart interrupts Homer and Marge’s is from `Grampa vs. Sexual Inadequacy (2F07),’ right? Wrong! I checked my tape of the original airing, and — yowsa! — we got to see a lot more of her this time. In fact, the scene that did air looks comparatively crude, as if the censors balked at the last minute and ordered a re- do. Well, I guess this makes up for dropping the `doggy leapfrog’ scene from `Two Dozen & One Greyhounds (2F18).’"

I remain in awe of SNPP. Also, Benjamin Robinson noticed this and had to check it on tape, I was able to verify it in less than 10 seconds on my laptop. Living in the future rules. 

Edited to fix the fact that the quote was in tiny font.

    “I suck for never noticing that before.”

    I’m pretty sure I noticed it the very first time the 138th episode aired. I must be painfully geeky/in possession of a filthy mind/both.
