Quote from: Mobbd on November 22, 2021, 11:54:16 AMThat's a very odd choice. It actually suggests to me that this isn't even a true crossover. I would have thought this whole stunt had been originated by the Sinister House of Mouse, but now I wonder if it was Team Simpsons trying to do a thing.
Quote from: JamesTC on January 14, 2022, 11:15:54 PMVarious jokes about there being no power such as Snake not being killed in the electric chair
Quote from: Blumf on January 15, 2022, 12:33:37 AMDidn't they do this joke before?
QuoteBart has a camp girlfriend who is a bag of rice with an ambiguous race.
Quote from: Blumf on January 15, 2022, 01:19:08 AMYeah, I'd swear I saw an earlier one with Snake on the chair, but the power's out.
Quote from: JamesTC on January 09, 2021, 12:48:37 AMSeason 19 - Episode 3 - Midnight TowboyAs a side note, as I watch the episode I am pondering why we don't see Santa's Little Helper anymore. I adore greyhounds and would love to adopt one at some point in the future. I miss that little guy.
Quote from: Rob1969in on January 16, 2022, 09:28:11 PMI have only read the first few pages but I wanted to ask a question before continuing -Have you adopted a Greyhound yet?
Quote from: Poobum on January 15, 2022, 08:28:35 PMI thought so too. Seems I'm conflating two episodes, one is 'Lisa The Tree Hugger' from series 12 where Snake is in a solar powered chair that's taking an age to work, just mildly shocking him. The other is 'The Little Wiggy' from series 9 where Bart and Ralph break into an abandoned prison and accidently re-power an electric chair that Mayor Quimby is due to pretend to use a couple of days after. Think they ring Mr. Burns up mid electrocution and he has the power cut as they're getting it for free.
Quote from: JamesTC on January 15, 2022, 12:58:40 AMSomething similar. I might be forgetting another one they also specifically did with Snake.
Quote from: Wadded Beef on February 06, 2022, 07:14:36 AMA lot of episodes from around that time have that problem, unfortunately.

Quote from: Old Nehamkin on February 06, 2022, 10:15:38 AMThe first time I remember noticing this issue was the Trouble With Trillions episode that ends with Homer, Burns and Smithers adrift on a raft after being fleeced by Fidel Castro and kicked out of Cuba. There's some dialogue about how Burns plans to bribe the jury when they get back home and he's tried for stealing the trillion dollar bill, then it just goes to credits. Even as a child I remember staring blankly at the screen and thinking "wait, that's not an ending."
Quote from: idunnosomename on February 06, 2022, 12:55:47 PMI just read a description of that "Homer runs a daycare" one and it genuinely sounds one of the most thoroughly unpleasant episodes ever
Quote from: Andy147 on February 06, 2022, 02:10:23 PMA bigger problem with the Trouble With Trillions is the plot:"Impressed, Johnson reveals to Homer that in 1945, President Harry S. Truman printed a one trillion-dollar bill to help reconstruct post-war Western Europe and enlisted Montgomery Burns to transport the bill. However, it never arrived and the FBI suspects Burns still has it with him. Homer is sent in to investigate."which seems to have been written by someone who doesn't understand how money, politics, law and indeed basic logic work.
