Trivia

The episode title is a reference to the biblical story, "Sampson And Delilah". Sampson has super human strength, but loses it when his hair is cut off. See more »

Goofs

There is no logical way that Karl could have known about the Simpsons' wedding anniversary, as Homer forgot all about it and this sort of information would not be in his personal record at the power plant. See more »

Another Strong Episode!
22 February 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The second episode of the second season of the Simpsons is another strong episode thanks to a great story which involves Homer having hair and a fiery guest star voiced by Harvey Fierstein. It may be debated whether the issue of homosexuality is being crossed or not, especially for his time period. But that issue doesn't bother me too much.

This episode, "Homer and Delilah," has Homer using a new hair product which enables him to grow lots of hair. Using his new hairstyle, he gets a promotion at work and becomes friendly with Mr. Burns.

Overall, this is a very solid episode and continues what the first episode started. A very strong episode that is also one of my favorites. For those who love Homer, this episode is for them. I rate this episode 9/10.
