    It seems the animation team always seems to be on their A game whenever we see Krusty’s show (two memorable examples from THOH: Zombie Krusty and The Bart Zone).

      Yep, and small note, but I just love that little detail with a small wrinkle underneath Krusty’s eyes. Subtle but meaningful touch.

      Also: his hair’s not as neat as before.

    This is an entirely different, unrelated note, but if you hadn’t read about the latest update to Tapped Out, you might be interested. The whole plotline is a vicious parody/imitation of Clash of Clans, and it’s so amazingly hypocritical that it’s almost fascinating. Maybe I’ve missed it on Reader’s Digest, because it is definitely something.

    I fully expect some sort of annoyingly self-depreciating dialog eventually (I swear, more than half of the game’s jokes are based on the fourth wall), but the entire gist seems to be commenting on the other game’s addictive traits, particularly the concept of upgrades. Not only that, but they’re leaning harder on their own tendencies in the process. It’s bizarre.

    Using those mocked upgrades as an example: in order to progress and unlock content as usual, you’re also required to “upgrade” your characters. Once you hit a certain amount of gold, you’re meant to tap your castle, and upgrade a Simpson. Then you get a smarmy message about how useless that was. The gold, oddly enough, isn’t spent – it’s not a currency.

    Yet right above it is the option to upgrade your CASTLE, in exchange for event currency. No stab at humor this time – just a tiny, barely noticable upgrade. If you hit level 10 on your castle? Congratulations, you’re now allowed to buy more castle walls with elixir! Except, well, not really! That’s only applicable to the first castle – the others charge donuts for their walls. Aside from the price list, there’s never any distinction made, and TSTO seems to be suffering from that little bug that resets your “confirm spend” option yet again. There’s even more to discuss here, but I’ve been blathering for ages.

    Every time I hear a quickly-read string of terms and conditions, I remember my dad quoting that line. Brilliant.

    Originally, that scene was supposed to be Krusty offering kids his book of him in a variety of sexually-explicit positions (like Madonna’s “Sex” book back in the 1990s) and getting busted on peddling pornography to minors, followed by the scene of the executives telling Krusty that he’s been canceled and replaced with a hemorrhoid infomercial starring Claude Aiken and Krusty begging the execs to give him a job as a hemorrhoid sufferer or one of the “After” guys.

    I wonder if the “Worker and Parasite” cartoon would still have been on there if they used those two scenes. Probably not.

    Fortunately, the 138th Episode Spectacular had the missing scenes
