The Simpsons – tape 1544

Here’s a nice surprise. At the start of this tape, which is mostly Simpsons episodes, there’s a short clip from a programme whose name I can’t remember, with an interviewer whose name I can’t remember (but who’s not very good) interviewing Clive Barker about an art exhibition.

Then we’re into The Simpsons, and firt it’s Lisa’s Pony. Homer lets Lisa down at the school talent show, so he inadvisedly buys her a pony.

Sad note: During the school talent show, a little boy sings Chuck Berry’s ‘My Ding a Ling’. Within an hour, I’m reading about Chuck Berry’s death in Twitter. This one is totally on me. Rest in Peace, Chuck, and I’m so very sorry.

Next, it’s Saturdays of Thunder in which Homer tries to be a better dad by helping Bart with his soapbox derby car.

In I Married Marge Homer talks about when he and Marge got married.

Then a classic episode, Radio Bart, in which Bart drops his walkie talkie down a well and pretends he’s a little boy trapped. Naturally, circumstances conspire to get him down the well himself. Guest starring Sting with his shirt off.

Next, it’s So It’s Come to This: A Simpsons Clip Show. Homer is in a coma after an April Fool stunt by Bart.

In The Front, Bart and Lisa write scripts for Itchy and Scratchy, and submit them under Grandpa’s name. Plus this.

And in Whacking Day, the town has its annual festival where they whack snakes. Guest starring Barry White.

After this, recording stops, but underneath there’s an older recording, of 21 Jump Street. The recording stops after a bit of this.
