  • One of the best for season 22

    "The Simpsons are going to..." the Oscars when Bart tells Hollywood to "Eat my short!" - that is, his "Angry Dad" short film, which is nominated for the Animated Short Film Oscar I thought this was a perfect episode of the Simpsons. It is one of the best I've seen for the season. The plot of Bart making an Angry Dad was very interesting. Homer being Angry Dad was very funny. He did some funny moments here as well (putting cards on his @$$, "If I find that number, you're in big trouble," etc.) While I do agree that the puns are getting ridicolous, they were not that bad here. Also, some of the parts were time fillers, but they were not as bothersome as the ones in Family Guy. Another nitpick is that Homer taking the credit for the movie while it actually created by Bart. The ending (before the credits) was kinda nice by the way. Overall, this episode was perfect, despite some of the problems here. 10/10moreless
  • Superb episode

    9.0
    I saw this episode and I thought it was funny. The plot was good and I did think there were many hilarious scenes like that the Itchy and Scratchy scene at the beginning of this episode although I felt like it was too violent, Homer wants his yogurt mixed in with the tips, Bart skateboard all over his house was funny, when Homer said "That's it boy, I'm eating your yogurt", Marge said "you ate his yogurt in the car", and Homer responds "he doesn't know that", Homer choking Bart of course is always hilarious no matter how many times, when that writer said "it's like meeting Mickey Mouse and Walt Disney at the same time", Homer uses his butt for cards and then to open the soda, a video of the audience's reactions to Bart's Angry Dad movie, when Luigi said "Sir Anthony, your pizza's, she's a gonna be late" and then Anthony Hopkins responds "Damn you.. damn you to hell", Randy Newman singing "You Got an Enemy", when Russel Brand said "none of you are my friends", when that gangster guy said "Damn Home Simp, you've been Oscar blocked... what do you think about that Nasty Jake?" and then Nasty Jake responds "That's cold", and the clips for each nominations such as that "Lewis & Crumble" clip, "Condiments" by MIXAR (a.k.a. PIXAR) and more. I also loved that Ricky Gervais, Halle Berry, and Russell Brand voiced as themselves in this episode. The only thing I didn't think about this episode was that Homer was taking all of Bart's credit for the movie. Overall, this was a superbly hilarious episode of The Simpsons. 9/10moreless

  • Very interesting episode!

    9.5
    I thought this was an excellent episode. It had a very compelling plot and some genuinely funny moments like the ceiling fan threatening to kill Bart, Homer wanting the money from the tip jar mixed into his yogurt, and Halle Berry's part. The thing Homer did with the deck of cards was also funny. I also liked the fact that Bart mentioned SpongeBob, and the parodies of "Toy Story" and "Wallace and Gromit" were cool and interesting to see. The reference to the Kids' Choice Awards was also very clever. The only thing I didn't like was Homer taking the credit for the movie. Overall, though, the episode was terrific, and my final grade is an A. Marebear2009, out!

    Anyone remember "Angry Dad" from s13? Well, in this episode, Bart makes Angry Dad movies. He makes one but it is negatively received and so he makes a short film which becomes very popular. It even wins awards. But Homer keeps taking all the credit, so when the film is nominated for an Oscar, Bart tries to keep it a secret from homer.



    Good episode, at least with the jokes. A lot of parts were fairly funny. The only thing I did not like was the plot itself, which was kind of weirdly put together. Still, an overall good, enjoyable episode that gets a B or so as a grade from memoreless

    • When Bart and Homer are walking in the studio and one of the writers says, "It's just like Mickey Mouse and Walt Disney together", Homer makes an impression of Mickey Mouse. Walt Disney was the creator of Mickey Mouse and provided the voice of Mickey Mouse in the 1930s.

    • When Lisa meets the Mixar creators and Randy Newman at the piano is singing "You've Got an Enemy". This is a parody of the song "You've Got a Friend in Me," which is sung by Randy Newman in the Toy Story films.
