"Maniacs! You Blew It Up!"

This classic Simpsons episode feels like a full two hour movie and not
just a half hour show. It seems as if every Sci Fi Classic of the last
fifty years comes in for the hilarious Simpsons treatment.
Some high points: Homer fielding questions at the press conference.
"Wait a minute . . . Statue of Liberty . . . that was really our
planet. You maniacs! You blew it up! Oh, damn them all to hell!"
(PLANET OF THE APES)
Homer and Barney fighting man to man for a slot as an astronaut,
gladiator style, while jaded NASA scientists cheer them on and take
bets. (STAR TREK: THE GAMESTERS OF TRISKELION)
Homer floating through space, like a vast spacecraft, crunching potato
chips in zero gravity. (2001 SPACE ODYSSEY)
And don't forget James Taylor revealing his less-than-mellow vibe, and
Springfield TV anchor Kent Brockman preparing for the inevitable.
Classic Simpsons, with Homer becoming a real hero and not one but two
ITCHY AND SCRATCHY cartoons.
