Goofs

The aliens, Kang and Kodos, are shown hitchhiking. They sport a destination sign reading "EARTH CAPITAL". It *could* be attributed to English presumably being their second language, but the word they wanted was "CAPITOL". See more »

Attack of the 50-foot mascot
2 August 2017 | by Mr-FusionSee all my reviews

I'd had vague memories about this episode from way back, primarily because of the third act with Homer stumbling into the third dimension (best CGI 1995 had to offer).

Couple of really good lines here, but it's mostly the 3D gimmick. And the middle segment turns out to be the weakest.

But the real laughter is in the opener, a terrific jab at commercial advertising - and Homer's gluttony. Just seeing Lard Lad run amok is worth the price of admission.

7/10
