A car by Homer for Homer
athomed from United States
30 December 2011
Let me start off by saying this episode is one of the best from a
season 2 jam-packed with great episodes.
Couch gag rating: 9/10 It's a repeat from the episode Dancin' Homer.
You wonder where Maggie is for a split second before she makes her
The episode: After Grandpa realizes he won't be around forever, he
reveals to Homer that he had a love child. Homer has a half-brother!
Homer immediately sets out to find this long lost brother. Amazingly
he's successful. His brother, Herb, is the millionaire CEO of a car
company in Detroit.
Favorite moment(s): The scene between Homer and the extremely familiar
director of the orphanage. Homer's car commercial.
Watching this episode in 2011--almost 2012 now, it's fascinating to
think that Homer's idea of the perfect car is exactly what became
popular in the '90s and '00s. He describes wanting a big car with pep.
He basically describes the average SUV or the Hummer with all its flash
Overall rating: 10/10 Don't miss this episode. Meet Homer's
half-brother, voiced by Danny DeVito. Then check out Brother, Can You
Spare Two Dimes where Uncle Herb appears again.
