SSR #24: “One Fish, Two Fish, Blowfish, Blue Fish”

Introduction:
The Simpsons have been on the air for 30 years now, but have we considered the possibility of a main character of the Simpson family dying? Sure, the show has dealt with character death before, and some characters have been flat out retired, but what if a character of Homer’s status were to pass on? How would the world be different? How would his family react? How would he handle his last moments? Well, interestingly enough, Season 2 just so happened to have an entire episode dealing with that, and today, we are going to be taking a look at that episode.

SSR #23: “Bart Gets Hit by a Car”

Introduction:
The Simpsons are known for having some of the most memorable and talented recurring guest stars. There is Joe Mantegna who plays the role of Fat Tony, the late, great Marcia Wallace who played Edna Krabappel and John Lovitz has starred in a number of guest roles and appearances as well. However, as amazing as all of those performances are, there is one guest voice who always manages to catch my attention and bring the nonstop laughter, and that voice is none other than Phil Hartman. Why is this relevant? Well, the next episode we are taking a look at is “Bart Gets Hit by a Car,” which just so happens to be Lionel Hutz’s first appearance, and Phil Hartman’s first credit as a voice actor on The Simpsons.
