There's a big difference between a show being good and a shoe being enjoyable.

oh wait i found the clip 

the timing is actually all pretty not bad. even the putting the box back on the dog is fine.

the way they did the dog's expression is classic too. i LOVE how they do animals in the simpsons. like stampy and the bear that tried to climb up the helicopter latter. just that expression they put on every animal is so funny.

good stuff.

*one thing. the laughter is a bit weird. like saying 'very good' and stuff like i get they're going for the bait and switch with getting the math joke. but whatever. also i don't think he had to say "dog in box" but w/e doesn't ruin this for me.

i realize i'm being an extremely nitpicky douche. i hold the simpsons to a high standard.

oh and i should repost this here as well.
i'm travelling on a plane soon and didn't want to be a muslim guy holding a big black guitar case so I covered it in simpsons stickers i got off of redbubble.com

redbubble actually sent some quality stickers these aren't bad for the price at all.
i'm gonna order another batch soon for the back.
need a 'welcome thrillho" and some itchy and scratchy . or maybe a classic krusty face sticker idk.

i wish they had a sticker for marges t-shirt misprint face... :

I was thinking about the contrast between Family Guy and the Simpsons

The Simpsons (golden years) is full of references, particularly old movie references. Whether it's framing a shot like a classic scene, or creating the Copyright-Infringement-Avoidance-Mix of "Axel F"

But The Simpsons never told you. You just had to know, there's a million references that I learned about the source material later (there's a song called Talkin Baseball??)

Meanwhile in Family Guy, they were insanely direct about their references. They would always flat out tell you the joke before showing it to you.

Now I'm not here to tell you one style is better than the other, with Family Guy style, you can tell more absurd and specific jokes and have them make contextual sense, The Simpsons is a bit more subversive.

There are plenty of instances where a reference on the Simpsons went over my head and I didn't realize that it was a reference until I saw the original source or when my dad told me about it. It definitely makes watching older movies more interesting knowing how much Simpsons would reference those movies but do it in such a way that it didn't feel like a reference.

And good call on Family Guy there. One of the many reasons why I hate the show.

Carrying this over from a Facebook post, but what is going on with Abe Simpson's hair?

"Present-day" Abe seems to be blond, like Bart and Lisa, with no hairline distinguished from his skin tone. It's also maybe kind of implied in his design that his hair is thinning or now just in a tuft at the top of his head.

In flashbacks of Abe from when Homer is a kid (or earlier), he usually has some version of brown hair, ranging from reddish to almost black, but there are also some scenes like in the Hellfish episode where he's still blond (although with a more clearly established hairline). There are also instances later in his life (but before "present-day") when he has gray hair?

Then we have whatever the hell is happening in the last image. So is his signature four-spike tuft more like a skin growth or tumor then, because he has it here, but also some sort of male pattern baldness with the graying darker hair? This is important.

Posting because of "Bart Jace."  This is a wall at my workplace that I, actively, have nothing to do with.
