During the scene where Homer is in the third dimension. He walks by a building resembling the library from the video game Myst (1993). See more »


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 »


[Principal Skinner is having a meeting with parents, but burning Willie rushes into the room]
Groundskeeper Willie: Help! Please, help me!
Principal Skinner: Willie, don't worry! Mr. Van Houten has the floor.
Mr. Van Houten: I, for one, would like to see the cafeteria menus in advance so parents can adjust their dinner menus accordingly. I don't like the idea of Milhouse having two spaghetti meals in one day.
[before anyone could answer, the entire class looks directly at Willie, who explodes into flame and screams]

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.
