Trivia

The Erotic Cakes shop was filmed only 1 mile (1½Km) from a scene in Adam-12: Log 15: Exactly 100 Yards (1969) where a young boy is asked by officers Reed & Malloy to open his jacket. See more »

Goofs

The aliens, Kang and Kodos, are shown hitchhiking. They sport a destination sign reading "EARTH CAPITAL". It *could* be attributed to English presumably being their second language, but the word they wanted was "CAPITOL". See more »

Unprocessed fishsticks!
27 January 2006 | by (The Penumbra) – See all my reviews

Not wishing to suffer a night of boring stories and horrid family activities with Patty and Selma, Homer scours the house for a hiding place and has to settle for a spot behind the bookcase after Bart, Lisa and the pets take the better ones.

But behind the bookcase is the doorway to another dimension, a place where shapes are extended beyond the 2 dimensions of the Simpsons universe, along the hypothetical 'Z-Axis'. This leads to Homer noticing things he has never been able to see before, such as his big belly and butt.

The place Homer is taken to is a massive grid-like universe, not unlike the movie Tron, where the stars shine brightly above and odd shapes and idiosyncrasies are in abundance. Among the many curious things Homer encounters is the library from Myst, which I thought was a cool reference. Also, the music as Homer wanders around in this mysterious place is very nice, it's a shame it never made it to any of the Simpsons CDs.

In the end, though Homer's own ignorance of quantum physics (he never read the book by that wheelchair guy) and despite Bart's rescue attempts, the universe collapses on itself and Homer falls into oblivion, or some place much, much worse...

...the real world. Well, at least he still has his erotic cakes.
