The longest running animated TV show about the family of five is one of my favorites. That’s right, I’m talking about “The Simpsons”. I’ve been laughing at the moments for many years.
And that is what the post is all about. It will mention scenes from the traditional episodes, Treehouse of Horror episodes, and even the theatrical movie from 2007. Here’s the countdown.
5: In the Treehouse of Horror episode, “Time and Punishment”, Homer fixes the toaster and ends up turning it into a time traveling toaster. When he first goes back to the time of dinosaurs, he remembers the advice from his father on his wedding day. That was to never step on anything if traveling back in time, because even the smallest errors could drastically alter the future. But Homer accidentally squishes a bug. And when he questions how that can’t possibly change the future, a prehistoric mammal shrugs and makes a noise meaning, “I don’t know.” The last sentence was the funniest part.
4: In the animation festival episode, Homer volunteers to wear the special costume and have the animated dog follow every movement he made. Every move cracked me up. But when Homer used the bathroom in that costume, that was just hilarious.
3: In the theatrical release from 2007, Bart skateboarding naked was humorous from when he first started to when he landed on the window outside a burger place.
2: In the Treehouse of Horror episode, “Nightmare Cafeteria”, after so many students have been put in detention and never came back, a kid shook out of anxiety at his desk and his pencil dropped. Mrs. Krabappel pointed at the door and said, “Detention.” I don’t know why, but that moment cracked me up a lot.
And onto the number 1 funniest moment…
1: In the Treehouse of Horror episode with the watch that stopped time, the scene where Homer tries to eat doughnuts and they all disappear. Then his clothes disappear, as do Nelson’s. I laugh so hard at that scene that I kind of lose my voice.
So there you have it—the funniest moments of “The Simpsons”.
