Storyline

Bart is caught shop-lifting a video game from a store. He is barred from the store, but when Marge visits it with Bart in tow, the gung-ho store detective tells her of her son's misdemeanor and they grow apart. Eventually, Bart gives her a Christmas present, which she fears he has stolen, but when she discovers it is a framed picture of himself paid for in full, she is overjoyed, and gives him a video game, though sadly it is a golf instruction video, and not the game he desperately wanted.

Trivia

Milhouse brags that the game, "Bonestorm" is impressive and all he has done is enter his name; to which he enters "Thrillhouse," rather than his actual name. But the space for the amount of letters for the name only allows it to read, "Thrillho," eight letters. Meaning his actual name, Milhouse could ironically be spelled on the game without any letters missing. See more »

One of the more poignant "Simpson" episodes
15 July 2008 | by (New Zealand) – See all my reviews

"Marge Be Not Proud" is one of the more bittersweet but very heartfelt episodes from "The Simpsons".

A mixture of comedy, melancholy and Christmas, this episode is about Bart wanting to play an ultra cool video game called "Bonestorm". When the Comic Book Guy runs out of copies to rent and Milhouse won't let him play his one, Bart resorts to shoplifting, but is caught red handed by the store's detective, Don Brodka. Brodka leaves a message on the Simpsons' answering machine and warns Bart that if he ever steps foot into the store again, he will spend Christmas in Juvenille Hall. Bart makes a mad dash for home and quickly changes the tape with a comedy tape. Unfortunately, the Simpson family go to the Try-N'-Save store for a Christmas family photo and Bart is caught again by Brodka. Marge and Homer don't believe Brodka at first but then he shows them a tape of Bart shoplifting. Marge is crushed when she sees Bart's actions and wonders if its because she babied him too much. She then starts to treat Bart like an adult, making Bart feel even worse than he is.

This is definitely one of the more sadder episodes of "The Simpsons", but it has a heart and has a sweet and funny uplifting ending. Out of all of the Marge & Bart episodes, "Marge Be Not Proud" is the best of the lot.

A full 10/10 from me.
