  • Homer is hospitalized due to an April Fool's prank pulled by Bart. The hospital stay gives the family time to reminisce thus a clip show ensues.

    This was the first Simpsons clip show and the writers did a good job in finding a funny plot as an excuse to show some clips. I like the fact that the writers purposely make fun of clip shows in few different instances, one is after showing a random Itchy and Scratchy episode someone asks "why are we talking about that," and Bart replies that it was a memorable episode of our lives. The clips include a pretty decent montage of Doh's from Homer although they repeat a few and this episode gives the writers a good excuse to use Dr. Nick in the hospital which is always a plus. At least they put some effort into this clip show.
