A Good Message,
27 April 2013 | by (Ireland) – See all my reviews

A Tree Grows In Springfield is a great Simpsons episode with a lot of very funny scenes.Its not the best episode of the twenty fourth season so far,but its still a very enjoyable episode and I thought that the message it gave us about hope was very sweet and really made me good about how touching the Simpsons can be.I also really enjoyed the animated short at the end,I know it was only added in to fill more time but I thought it was really good and it took me back to really early Disney and Warner Brothers cartoons that I watched when I was A child.

Homer becomes depressed when his new obsession,his myPad,is destroyed,but finds hope when a 'miracle tree' grows in their backyard.
