Episode Summary

Springfield Elementary finally gets a career day speaker that keeps the children's interest. The creator of cartoon inspires the children to come up with their own cartoon characters. Bart makes an initial comic strip of "Danger Dude," which he shows to the Comic Book Guy and Marvel Comics creator Stan Lee who happens to stop by the comic book shop, but never leaves. Their feedback leads Bart to search for other inspiration, which he finds in his own father. He makes Homer the main character in a comic that he calls "Angry Dad". It becomes very popular and an Internet company wants to make "Angry Dad" an Internet cartoon. They offer Bart stock in return for use of his strip. "Angry Dad" becomes even more popular, but when Homer sees it at work, he goes home very angry. The citizens of Springfield, who see him in his car angry, try to make him angrier to see what he'll do. The family realizes that Homer has anger management issues. Homer resolves to take it easy, leaving Bart without any material. Bart sets an elaborate trap to anger the now sedate Homer. Bart finds out that the Internet company has gone bankrupt and doesn't need his new material, just as Homer takes the bait for the trap. Homer gets green with anger, a la The Incredible Hulk and it turns out Bart has saved Homer's life; since the pent up rage would have killed him.moreless

  • Bart creates the cartoon angry dad off of Homer.

    This episode is just pure genius. This is hands down one of my favorite episodes of the whole series because its just so cleaver and funny. The idea of creating Homer into a comic book character based off his anger is just amazing. Homer is at his funniest when hes angry, and thats what makes this episode so funny. Not to mention the wonderful parody of the incredible hulk at the end of the episode. Also, I loved the satire of how big internet corp. are run with the line of here take as much stock as you want. It was just an fantastic episode that should be praised by all. I give it an A+++moreless
  • One of the top 50 episodes in the whole series!!! Soild with great humor...

    When a cartoon animator speaks to Bart's class on career day, Bart gets the idea to make an animated series of his own. After countless efforts and derogatory statements from Comic Book Guy, Bart's attempts at cartooning come to a crashing halt. That is until the biggest character of all inspires him at home: Homer. Bart creates a character based on Homer called "Angry Dad," that chronicles Homer's daily antics via flash animation on the Internet. Bart's problem however, is that he's running out of material when Homer begins to suppress his rage. As a result, Bart decides to create an elaborate scheme to make Homer go crazy and provide ample fodder for his cartoon. When Homer falls victim to Bart's prank, he becomes so enraged that he turns into a delirious version of the Incredible Hulk and has to be subdued by countless police officers from Springfield's finest. In the end, Homer realizes that keeping all the rage inside can sometimes actually be a bad thing.moreless
  • ROOOOAARRRRRRR!!! HOMER MAD!! Hahaha! Another one!

    A creator of cartoons comes to Springfield Elementary and inspires the children to make their own comics. Bart makes a comic called "Danger Dude", and shows it to Comic Book Guy and Stan Lee, who both reject it. Taken by their response, Bart looks for something to inspire his next comic, and finds Homer being angry like usual. Bart finds this a great inspiration, and he makes a comic called "Angry Dad". This was my favorite part!!! It becomes so popular that an Internet company makes it into a web cartoon. Then Homer sees it at work, a nd becomes very angry. Driving home, people come up and make him angrier to see what happens. The family finds out that Homer has anger management problems. So he decides to go out and not be angry. He gets hit by several things, but doesn't care. Meanwhile, Bart and Milhouse are going to pull a prank on Homer to get him angry again. Then he finds out that the Internet company went bakrupt, and they won't need his material. But Homer goes through the prank anyway, and lands in green paint. Then, done in style of the Hulk, he ravages through the town and is finally angry, but it is found out that Bart saved Homer's life, because no anger would have killed him. This is yet another episode that I like!!!!!!!!!!!!moreless
  • Beware of Angry Dad!

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (3)

    • In Springfield Elementary School, the fire alarm tone is a bell. Most schools in the United States do not use bells for fire alarms. They usually use a buzzer or a high-pitched beeping tone, and some modern schools use a voice-evacuation message over a speaker system. However, bells for fire alarms are more commonly found in Canada.

    • At one stage, Bart and Milhouse are watching Angry Dad together when Homer runs in and starts choking Bart, knocking Milhouse off the chair. Milhouse is nowhere to be found in the rest of that scene.

    • In the scene with Homer in the hospital for one tiny scene Maggie has a red hairbow, and for the rest of the episode, and the scene right after, she has a blue bow.

  • NOTES (3)

    • If you visit the website you'll see that there is nothing there, which ties into the company going bankrupt in the episode. Nice work by the show's producers, they must have researched empty domain names.

    • Blackboard Joke: None
      Couch Gag: After the family sits down, something comes down from overhead and grabs Homer's head and begins pulling him upwards. Leading him to shout "Ow, my brain"!

    • This episode aired the same week as the movie release of Spider-Man.


    • Unknown: "Stan Lee insulted me. But in Bizarro world, that means he likes me!"
      Stan Lee is a big shot at Marvel Comics, but "Tales of the Bizarro World" is a Superman (DC) comic about a world filled with imperfect Superman Clones.

    • Stan Lee: The thing fits in the Batmobile nicely
      In this scene a boy wants to buy a Batman action figure to go with his Batmobile but Stan Lee forces a Thing action figure into it. The Thing is a Marvel Comics character which Stan Lee is the founder of while Batman is a character from rival D.C. comics.

    • There are three parts of this episode that have references to various Marvel Comics superheroes (of which Stan Lee is the founder and editor):

      There is a figure of the Thing (from the Fantastic Four) on a bench at the comic book shop.

      Stan Lee says his Spidey sense is tingling when he looks at Bart's comic. Spider-Man has a special sense that warns him of danger called his Spider Sense. He also hums the theme of the first Spider-Man TV series from 1967 while he puts the Marvel comics in front of the DC comics on the rack of comics.

      Finally, toward the end of the episode, Homer falls in the green paint, and in extreme rage, rips of his shirt and starts acting like the Incredible Hulk, causing destruction along the way.

    • Danger Dog is probably a reference to the cartoon character Danger Mouse who used to be popular with the UK and the US in the 80s. It was about a mouse and his assistant (who's a hamster) who fight crime.

    • The title, "I am Furious Yellow" is a spoof of a Swedish film called I Am Curious Yellow. The film was banned in many countries for explicit pornographic content.

    • Cartoon of Lou Rawls: You'll never find...that microfilm of mine.
      This is a reference to singer Lou Rawls' 1976 hit "You'll Never Find Another Love Like Mine."

    • Viewer gir_3000 notes that the following two scenes remind me a lot of a show called Invader Zim. For the first scene if you pause the picture you'll see that the chunks of barf are actually the heads of fellow workers and their friends. Invader Zim is well known for not only constantly sticking in images of people who work there but also for putting them in terrible situations (choking on fish, being stepped on by giant hamsters, being called meat, being crushed by various objects).

      Also in the first episode of Invader Zim they had a dialouge similar to this dialogue sequence:
      "See he's fitting right now!"
      "Ahh! You ruined my Batmobile."
      "Ruined it, or made it better?"
      The Zim dialogue...
      "Hey, I put out the fires!"
      "You made them worse!"
      "Worse, or better?"
