  • The Smurfs take on the Movie Se7en, that's just great.

    It's interesting how they were able to sumarize the movie Se7en in a comedic skit, using smurfs. And it was cool to find out Cronic Masterbator smurf, he's a cool smurf (yes, I know Robot Chicken just made him up). But it was a funny skit and I overall enjoyed it. Cause it was the darkest smurf episode I ever saw.

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (5)

    • The Woman holding Apu prisoner is a parody of Lynndie England of the US army.
      England was convicted of one count of conspiracy, four counts of maltreating detainees and one count of committing an indecent act, in September of 2005, during the war on terror against Iraqi forces.

    • If you look closely enough, you will notice that the way Brainy opens the door to Smurfette's house is inconsistent. In one shot, it opens to Brainy's right, but in the reverse shot, it opens to his left. The door opens the wrong way.

    • During the TRL sketch, the background shows a billboard with the botth half of a man's face and an advertisement saying, "Should Mike Shave His Head?"

      The creators of the show purposely placed this as an inside joke to one of their co-workers, Mike Fassolo.

    • Master Chef-Sarah Gellar
      Prop Master-Mila Kunis
      Master Beta-shannon Gold

    • The Stoopid Monkey is ready to bite his own tail

  • QUOTES (5)

    • Homer: Morning, Apu. One order of freedom fries, please.
      Apu: Oh! For the love of my heathen god! They're called french fries, you fat, stupid American!

    • Woman: (looking in the mirror)Aww! I'm so ugly and fat!
      Her Husband: That's what I've been trying to tell you.

    • (Brainy is booted out of town)
      Brainy: Mothersmurfer! Why do I never see that coming?

    • Brainy: Your sense of humor, your total disreguard for smurf safty...
      Jokey: I've got a surprize for you!
      Brainy: What's in the bos, Jokey, What's in the box!?
      *Brainy opens the box*
      Brainy: SMURFETTE!!! NOOOOO!!!
      Jokey: MWAHAHAHAHA!!!!!!!
      *Box exsplodes*
      Brainy: What the $%#& is wrong with you?

    • Scissor: (to Rock and Paper)So, who does what now?

  • NOTES (2)

  • ALLUSIONS (8)

    • The Simpsons
      During the Entertainment tonight sketch, the fox animated tv show "the Simpsons" is parodied.

      Also, the part involving Apu being chained and collared while naked and being held by an American woman, is a parody of the controversial photos taken by US officers, during the war on terror, of a a naked Iraqi man chained at the neck and led around by a woman. The photos were shown on the international news.

    • The Amazing Race
      Reality tv show on CBS "the Amazing Race" is parodied during the Entertainment Tonight sketch.

    • Entertainment Tonight
      The Entertainment news show, "Entertainment Tonight," is parodied with host of the show, Pat O'Brien.

    • Smurfs
      The last, main sketch of this episode is based on the 1980's cartoon, The Smurfs. The sketch featured many smurfs that were actually in the cartoon, with the exception of "chronic masturbator" Smurf.

      As for the comparison to the seven deadly sins, here's how the killings break down:

      "Chronic Masturbator" Smurf (Lust)
      Baker Smurf (Gluttony)
      Sleepy Smurf (Sloth)
      Vanity Smurf (Pride)

      Only four of the seven sins were explained, but one can imply that the victim for Greed was Greedy Smurf.

      Jokey Smurf, the killer, was an actual smurf as well.

      The three most recognizable characters (Brainy, Pappa, and Smurfette) are utilized in the sketch. Brainy and Papa are the two main lead roles, and Smurfette, although she had no speaking part, played a vital role as the final (and eighth) murder for Jokey.

    • Rock, Paper, Scissors:
      In a VERY short segment, a pair of scissors looks at a piece of paper and a rock and asks, "So...who does what now?" This is a reference and a parody of the infamous game, "Rock, Paper, Scissors."

    • King Kong:
      The skit with the adventurer explaining to the natives the faults of the wall they built to keep out the giant ape is based on the classic movie, "King Kong." Like with many other references on old movies, the writers take a perspective that is hilariously obvious to the viewer.

    • TRL:
      This show is a "live" show on MTV that features the top 10 videos of the day, guest interviews, and the fans' feedback on MTV and the music. Most of the fans are teenage girls who "go crazy", as stereotyped by the girl in the skit featuring "TRL."

    • The Smurfs sketch in this episode is a direct spoof of the movie "Se7en", about a cop who investigates a series of murders themed around the seven deadly sins.
