Trivia

The title is based on the event "The Day the Music Died" on February 3, 1959, when three American rock and roll musicians: Buddy Holly, Ritchie Valens, and J. P. "The Big Bopper" Richardson were killed in a small-plane crash near Clear Lake, Iowa. The event is also mentioned in the song "American Pie" by singer-songwriter Don McLean in 1971. See more »

Quotes

Chester J. Lampwick: He didn't create Itchy: I did.
Bart Simpson: Huh?
Chester J. Lampwick: He stole the character from me in 1928. When I complained, his thugs kicked me out of his office, and dropped an anvil on me. Luckily, I was carrying an umbrella at the time.

Wonderful Episode
11 September 2010 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

It was such a terrific Simpsons episode because it is a great one. That old man Chester got his 800 million dollars after Bart Simpson showed proof that Chester invented Itchy and Scratchy for his first film in 1919. Even if I had 800 million dollars,I would get myself cash-able anytime savings bonds and live on the interest from the Toronto Dominion Bank. Three percent or higher from 800 million is over 24 million dollars interest. Why would Chester have someone build a solid gold house and buy a rocket car? Chester would put a million dollars in a Springfield bank and put the rest in savings bonds so he can live on the interest. He should be in a luxury air-conditioned apartment as a suggestion. He should hire a limo chauffeur, a maid, a chef and nurse. That is what I would do with 800 million dollars.
