Great episode With A Different Storyline,
15 August 2012 | by (Ireland) – See all my reviews

Moe Goes From Rags To Riches is a great Simpsons episode with a great storyline,humor and also a good sub-plot which I thought was going to happen eventually during the series,because Bart is not a great friend to Milhouse.Jeremy Irons did a great job as a lovable bar rag who Moe claims to be his best friend.Im guessing the story to this was meant to be a bit of a parody of a film,I don't no what film,but Id love to see it because I found they where doing with the rag in this episode interesting.

Everyone mocks Moe,saying that his best friend is his bar rag~(voiced by Jeremy Irons.The bar rag can come to life and tells use all the story of how he became a bar rag,it takes use through ancient history.Meanwhile,Milhouse ignores Bart because he is sick of him making fun of him.Bart feels bad and trys to win him back.
