Bart puts his lucky red cap in the laundry, turning Homer's white shirt pink. When he wears the pink shirt to work, Homer is sent to a mental institution where his roommate is a big fat white guy who believes himself to be Michael Jackson. Homer's roommate and Bart collaborate on a song for Lisa's birthday-which she believes to be the best present she ever got.
Did You Know?
According to Al Jean
, Michael Jackson
would not commit to the episode until after a read-through of the script was done. The read was held at Jackson's manager Sandy Gallin's house, and Dan Castellaneta
(who provides the voice for Homer) was 30 minutes late. Jean recalls that "no one said a word, we just sat there waiting". Following the read, Jackson stipulated his conditions: he would record his speaking parts but not receive credit, and his singing voice would be performed by a sound-alike. See more
