Definitely one of my favourites from season 2, not quite as strong as ''Simpson And Delilah,'' but it's right up there. Brilliant work, Ken. :)

Watch those split infinitives, Ken...you should have wrote "Never one not to jump on a craze"


I love this episode. I don't want to boast about my incredible youth or anything, but when you write about Cheers and MASH it's entertaining but it doesn't tickle me... as a young Dutch fella never really grabbed me.The Simpsons, on the other hand, most certainly did. And I love the fact that you were responsible for one the most entertaining of the early episodes.


I meant to write, "as a young dutch Fella *IT* never really grabbed me".That could've been an embarassing faux-pas!


Thanks Ken - One of my faves.Best line is that two jumbo beers cost $2.50? That's cheap even for 17 years ago!


ESPN.com's Jim Caple did a long story on Wednesday on the Simpson's baseball-themed episodes, which includes a quote by Ken about Dancing Homer (copy and paste URL):http://sports.espn.go.com/espn/page2/story?page=caple/070725&lpos=spotlight&lid=tab5pos2


No school in Springfield tomorrow!


just on the verge of being TOO early for fun, despite the great script. The drawing style still just before i became classic form, lacking ability to show nuanced characteristics, instead of just weird angles and two differnet epxressions, and the voices...Homer still not on the sweet spot of his characteristic voice, and BURNS, wow...missing all of his hssssy sound. The script is up to speed with the best, but everyone sounds like weak tryouts for what they will be, a bit slow really. Oh well, the best is yet to come.
