Did You Know?


The part of Shari Bobbins was written with the intent of having Julie Andrews parody herself as Mary Poppins (1964). But Andrews was on Broadway at the time and was unavailable. The voice is provided by cast regular Maggie Roswell (the voice of Maude Flanders, Helen Lovejoy, Luann Van Houten, Elizabeth Hoover, and some walk-ons). See more »


On Krusty's Komedy Klassic, former president Gerald Ford states that the Boy Scouts of America has been shaping young men for over 100 years. The BSA was formed in 1910, so at the time of airing it was only 87 years old. See more »


Shary Bobbins: Hello. I'm Sharry Bobbins.
Homer Simpson: [excited] Did you say Mary Pop...?
Shary Bobbins: No! I definitely did not! I'm an original creation, like Rickey Rouse and Monald Muck.

A Classic Simpsons, Always Fun to Watch,
21 April 2015 | by lesleyharris30See all my reviews

Simpsoncalifragilisticexpiala-Annoyed-Grunt-cious is a brilliant Simpsons episode with a very well written storyline and loads of very funny scenes. The episode is a very funny parody of Mary Poppins, filled with many very memorable songs and hilarious quotes from the characters. Compared to some of the other episodes in the eight season it is a bit weak, simply because it is so good, it's great on it's own but in comparison to those episodes it can appear somewhat mediocre. Maggie Roswell's voice as Shary Bobbins is outstanding, definitely the best role she has ever been given on this show, I remember the first time I watched this I thought it was Julie Andrews, if that dosen't show how good it is I don't know what does. Funny and the shows best musical episode by far, Simpsoncalifragilisticexpiala-Annoyed-Grunt-cious is very enjoyable.

The Simpsons hire the perfect nanny to help around the house after Marge starts losing hair from stress.
