A Very Sweet Simpsons,
9 May 2013 | by (Ireland) – See all my reviews

To Cur With Love is a brilliant Simpsons episode with a lot of very funny scenes and also a lot of heart.I found the whole story of Homer's dog Bongo very sweet and heartwarming,and it was a nice thing to add to he history of these characters.the episode was both a very funny and very sweet episode that took me back to episodes like the first episode,Simpsons Roasting On An Open Fire and The Canine Mutiny.

When Santas Little Helper goes missing,the family are curious as to why he shows no care,and has never really showed much love for the family dog.Grampa tells the family a story of Homers dog when he was a kid,Bongo,who was his best friend.
