Trivia

Goofs

The flashbacks are set in 1985. Baby Lisa says that Homer, at the Grammy Awards, beat Dexy's Midnight Runners. DMR's only big hit was Come On Eileen, which came out in 1983. The band had no sizable hits after that and certainly would not be a contender for any Grammy awards after 1984. See more »

Anyone for classics!
7 July 2010 | by (Ireland) – See all my reviews

The Season Five opener Homers Barbershop Quartet is an absolute classic Simpsons episode,its well put together and well thought out.

When The Simpsons go to a Swab Meat convention they find an old CD for a band that Homer use to be in,Bart and Lisa cant remember it so Homer tells them the story.

Homer,PrincipaL Skinner,Apu and Chief Wiggum use to sing on stage at Moes,they then get signed up for their own famous band but they have to kick Chief Wiggum out and then they replace him with Barney after hearing him singing in the bathroom.
