extremely clever episode
21 June 2014 | by (South Florida) – See all my reviews

I knocked off the tenth point solely because the framework for the episode, featuring Nixon's head toted around by the headless Agnew, was not incredibly creative. However, quite obviously, the point of the episode lies in the three cartoon parodies, and brilliant parodies they are. I won't go into the uttermost detail of every joke and pun, but--for those who are old enough to remember (mind you, these cartoons date from the late 1960s through early 1980s)--the parodies brilliantly capture the quirks and chestnuts of "Scooby-Doo," "The Smurfs," and "G.I. Joe." Funniest of all was the first of these, where Bender is cast in the role of everyone's favorite Great Dane, and Fry (cast as shaggy) tends to crack drug-related jokes. From the setting in an impossible forest--in which, of course, someone's relative owns a facility to which the team has been invited--to the one-liners deriving from, "And I would've gotten away with it, too, if not for you meddling kids," and the chase in and out of a zillion-door corridor (accompanied, of course, by a cheesy late-1960s "rock" song), I found "Bendee-Boo" to be a nonstop laugh riot. Bravo, Matt Groening and David X. Cohen!
