Did You Know?


When Bart and Milhouse are reading the Mad Super Special, Milhouse comments that "they're really socking it to that Spiro Agnew guy again", and assumes that he must work at Mad Magazine for the writers to keep making fun of him. Of course, Spiro Agnew was Richard Nixon's Vice-President, but obviously 10-year-old children (roughly the target audience of the magazine) are far too young to remember him. This is a somewhat apt joke about Mad Magazine "Super Specials", which are composed almost entirely of reprinted articles, some of which can be very outdated. For example, some super specials printed in the late 90s made reference to "Former President Dwight Eisenhower", "Former Vice-President Richard M. Nixon" and "(Current) President Lyndon Johnson". Contrary to Bart's claim, however, Mad only publishes 4 "Super Specials" a year, not 17. In fact, Mad usually only publishes a total of 16 magazines a year, including "Super Specials". See more »

One of the finest episodes of the Simpsons
17 August 2014 | by (Norway) – See all my reviews

Team Homer is probably a episode that much focuses on how much Homer really joined the Bowling team, the episode follows Bart and Milhouse finding a MAD Special and when Bart gets a T-shirt saying Down With Homework, everybody gets Down with their homework and screams around. But then when Skinner realizes that he knew it was from MAD they made all the students wear uniforms but Homer on the other hand was joined on a bowling competition by getting Money from Burns accidentally that he is hallucinating a Poppins character, then Moe, Otto and Apu are joined in the game, but when Burns joins the game because of reputation, he steals the trophy and escapes with Homer trying to get it back

Great episode, brings me back the memories of the Simpsons, great acting and marvelous script, The humor as always funny
