The Simpsons

Correction: He does know that it's a prank call and that Bart is the one calling. He goes along with it because he doesn't want to make Bart mad.

I'm pretty sure that this is just an internet theory.

No, in this episode Bart has supernatural powers and the whole town lives in fear of him. He's making people do what he wants because he can.

Correction: There are 5 burgers on the plate and one in his mouth when Homer walks off. When Ned calls over the burger in his mouth has gone and is now on the plate.

Correction: This episode takes place over multiple days so he could have changed his pants at the start of each day.


Correction: Homer's brother could've paid for a new, resembling the old one.

Correction: That's the joke.

Correction: He may only want certain people (such as those he does not like) to buy it. He's advising Homer not to buy it as he's done no wrong in the seller's books.

Correction: Skinner was joking, safety requirements would not allow him to lock the doors.


Correction: That's what clocks do, even in cartoons. The changes in time make perfect sense.


Correction: Not at all clear if this is true, the monkey may simply have its tail between its legs.


Correction: Odd is permissible in the Tree House episodes. Some of the normal rules don't apply.


Like Father, Like Klown - S3-E6

Corrected entry: During this episode, Krusty is seen looking at the Simpsons videos and some Jewish magazines. Krusty can obviously understand what they are saying (as he seems eager to watch a video he finds at the Simpsons house and he gets very upset looking at a Jewish father/son magazine). However, he is supposed to be illiterate, reinforced by the fact that Krusty couldn't read Bart's letter early in the same episode.

Correction: Illiterate doesn't mean he can't recognise a video from the picture on The Front. As for the magazine, the picture on The Front is of a Jewish father and son and would be enough to provoke Krusty's reaction.

Correction: Not at all clear why the rain stopping is a mistake.


Correction: There is no reason why he has to read them in order. He's answering the ones he knows first which is something many people do.


Correction: True but this is Homer, he could easily have forgotten or may just be irritated at the interuption. Either way it's not a mistake.


Correction: Almost every other show it is demonstrated that Maggie has hundreds of pacifiers available to her. She spits one out, and she gets another one. That's just what happend here.

Correction: "Go wait in the car" is a common form of dismissal in the film/t.v. industry - it means "sod off", words to that effect. No car is involved.

Correction: Even if they did see, why would they care? Knives aren't illegal and for all they knew, the knife could have been his to begin with.

Correction: If the police couldn't find or hear him despite being in the garage then she would most likely not hear him either.

Correction: His father didn't know that it was his son until the other Rabbi sprayed him with the seltzer, washing off Krusty's makeup.

Correction: Transliterations from other languages, especially unrelated languages, into English are inexact and even inconsistent. How many ways are there of spelling, in English, the name of the dictator of Libya? Gaddafi, Qaddafi, Kaddafi ...

Answer: Willy referred to an encounter he believed he had with actual aliens, while Wiggum thought he was referring to the arcade game.

Answer: The joke is that Willie was so addicted to Space Invaders that he believed it was reality: every time he played, he was actually defending the Earth from dangerous aliens. It's a surprise to him that it was actually a game.
