Storyline

Krusty has earned a fortune as a clown, but through gambling, wanton waste, and carelessness, he has lost almost all his money. After Krusty's debts to the mob mount, he is desperate for some income. Krusty opens a clown college. Homer succumbs to a billboard advertisement and becomes one of the college's first students. After Homer begins clown work, he is regularly mistaken for Krusty. Homer gets special treatment from the police and storeowner Apu, and he delights in his good luck. After Homer declares that he is Krusty and he wants all that Krusty has coming to him, the mob members spot Homer and mistake him for Krusty. Written by Ken Miller <wkmiller704@yahoo.com>

Homer and Krusty collide
11 March 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Homie the Clown from season six of The Simpsons is one of the best Krusty the Clown episodes from the series. It has some stiff competition, but I'd put Homie the Clown near the top of the list.

The premise is rock solid. Krusty's spending habits are out of control (likely a function of him betting on the Washington Generals against the Globetrotters and using Action Comics #1 to light his smokes). He finds himself in debt to the mob. Krusty opens up Krusty's Clown College to bring in more bucks. One of their billboards convinces Homer to attend and become a Krusty.

I can imagine the people brainstorming and rough-drafting the animation had a lot of fun with this one. There's something funny and unpredictable about taking Homer and making him a Krusty. Of all the jobs Homer has taken on over the series' length, being a Krusty is still one of the coolest. The pink sedan decked out to look like a clown car is a pleasure to behold.

Homie the Clown resides in the upper echelon of season six episodes in my book; that's high praise.
