Trivia

Around the end of the episode Mr. Burns asks Homer how old he thought he was, and proceeds to tell Homer he is 81. This is a contradiction to a later episode, the first part of "Who Shot Mr. Burns?" where Skinner says to Mr. Burns, impersonating a student, there was no way he could mistake the town's most prominent 104 year old man.

Goofs

When Homer is rolling around on the grass outside the house with Bart, Lisa and Snowball II after the hair formula works, the cat is bigger than the children and almost as big as Homer in the overhead shot. 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.
