Rutiger's Inner Child
1 February 2009 | by (Mexico City) – See all my reviews

Bart Simpson as a role model? You have to see this episode, called Bart's Inner Child and that originally aired on 11/11/93, to see exactly what happens when Bart Simpson is seen by most of the people of Springfield as a role model but what exactly happens is certainly not a surprise since we all know what would happen with a lot of Barts. I really like this episode, the stuff with the self-help guru is simply great and there are many very memorable scenes. So here we have first Homer stuff, later Marge stuff and finally Bart stuff. Homer with his new trampoline is simply hilarious but the trampoline is a real danger the enters Marge who will be worry and really angry since Homer, Bart and Lisa think that she can't be funny, this makes us meet Brad Goodman (voiced by Albert Brooks who does a terrific job) who is not a good man and who at one point will say "be like Bart". Is interesting because at one point Homer and Marge were acting really different then they want Brad Goodman to help Bart. Goodman gives to the people of Springfield easy answers (as Lisa says), he makes lots of money and he don't see him again but we do see Principal Skinner saying "eat my shorts" and a very upset James Brown (who sings part of "I Got You (I Feel Good)") as some of the consequences of the fact that now most of the people do what they want to. Homer now goes out with his bathrobe and pair of slippers on, his beard has grown and is curious that we see him like that during the Do As You Feel festival and when he helps Bart to escape from the mob he is suddenly dressed as usual! But anyway now is chaos and everyone blames Bart but as I just wrote Homer is there to help him (hilarious scene!). Recommended episode and also check the really great reference to the Road Runner! 8.5 out of 10
