Storyline

Lisa calls on Homer to buy her a replacement reed for her saxophone for a talent show at school. Homer, however, is unable to bring it to her on time, because he wasted time at Moe's Tavern. He decides the best way to make her forget her anger is to buy her a pony, which he must take a second job--working at the Kwik-E-Mart--to support. Written by Anonymous

Rather Heartwarming Episode!
13 August 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is the eighth episode of the third season of the Simpsons and it is funny and heartwarming. There is a sweet message about how love for one's child can make a parent do anything they can. I found it hilarious that towards the end, Homer was essentially acting like a zombie. There are a few sad moments here as well, but they go hand-in-hand with the heartwarming.

In this episode, "Lisa's Pony," Homer fails to bring Lisa a new sax reed in time for her talent show and she is upset. Homer buys her a pony to cheer her up, but now the family is running short of money. That makes Homer take a second job at the Kwik-E Mart in order to help pay things off.

Overall, this is an excellent episode. Not only because of the underlying themes, but because of the movie references. I loved the references to both 2001: A Space Odyssey and the Godfather. This is one of the best episodes this season. I rate this episode 9/10.
