Storyline

When Lisa's saxophone gets flattened by a truck,Homer recalls how he came to buy it for her. Bart had just started school but Lisa was so gifted he was told learning an instrument would nurture her talents and he spent the money ear-marked for the air conditioning system on it, even having it engraved - after a fashion. Now is the time to spend what it is left in the air conditioning fund on another sax. Written by don @ minifie-1

Trivia

When explaining the 1990's, Homer says that "Tracey Ullman was entertaining America with songs,sketches and crudely drawn filler material". The simpsons began as a series of short fillers on the 'Tracey Ullman Show' and ran from '87 to '90 when it was developed into a half hour show. See more »

Goofs

During the scene where Homer has stolen Flanders' air conditioner, Rod and Todd can be seen and look like they're still 9 and 10 years old. Despite the fact that the scene is a flashback and takes place several years earlier. See more »

One of the Best Flashback Episodes,
17 February 2015 | by (Ireland) – See all my reviews

Lisa's Sax is a fantastic Simpsons episode with a very well written storyline and a ton of very funny scenes.It is certainly one of my favourite flashback episodes,learning about how Lisa got her saxophone was a story that felt necessary to know,seeing that it is the item we associate her with the most.The episode is very funny and the humour is fairly different,mainly because it is written by Al Jean,he has written some of my favourite episodes,I really love his style of writing,it is quite sarcastic at times and self aware,and it is seen very clearly in this episode.Lisa's Sax is a very fun and enjoyable Simpsons episode.

Homer tells Lisa the story of how she discovered she loved playing the saxophone.
