Storyline

Bart arranges for Krusty to perform at a comedy festival where his old-fashioned gags go down very badly alongside more modern comics. Bart takes the disillusioned clown home where Krusty is appalled by all the merchandise bearing his name and relaunches himself as a critic of the consumer society and its greed.

A 9th Season Gem
26 May 2017 | by (houston) – See all my reviews

***SPOILER ALERT*** This is in my Top 5 All-Time "Krusty" Episodes, (number one being the 1993 episode where he makes up with his long-lost father, played by the impeccable Jackie Mason.) The writing is crisp, topped off by Krusty's hilarious Japanese impersonation during a particularly bad performance ("Me so solly...me frap a dickie wrong time...") Krusty finally decides to quit show business and while announcing his "retirement" on live TV, he becomes a different kind of comic, telling it like it is,a no-holds-barred "angry-last guy" giving his opinions on everything from politics to religion in his bombastic way. Acting as if he can't bought, he reluctantly sells out to the local SUV-Truck dealer and advertises for "Canyonero" , resulting in more hilarity. Comedians Jeanine Garafalo, Steven Wright, Bobcat Goldwaithe, and Bruce "Baby Man" Baum lend cameos making this episode one of the funniest, line-for-line, scene by scene ever. This 9th Season (Fall 1997-Spring 1998)gem was a special one for me and remains so to this day. The Simpsons will always have a place in my heart.
