Rate/Review: Simpsoncalifragilisticexpiala(Annoyed Grunt)cious

Simpsoncalifragilisticexpiala Annoyed Grunt cious you know what to do IMO, Simpsoncalifragilisticexpiala Annoyed Grunt cious is clearly the worst of season 8, with a stupid parody, silly, annoying songs, only funny Simpsoncalifragilisticexpiala annoyed grunt cious online dating was Shary Bobbins dying at the end of the episode.

New sig coming soon. This one's just on for a little while. Fantastic parody of a fantastic movie, nicely done with tongue firmly in cheek. The producers didn't even need Julie Andrews here, as Maggie Roswell took to the role brilliantly and has a lovely singing voice. I quite liked the references to Victorian England in the actions and dialog of the minor characters, but the best part of the episode is quite obviously the songs, all ripped off hilariously, and you know what ones are being imitated.

B It's a funny enough Mary Poppins parody, with some nice musical numbers ripped from said movie. And even the ending with Bobbins being torn apart in the jet doesn't bother me, and is actually quite funny in a dark way. But the characterizations of the family were Simpsoncalifragilisticexpiala annoyed grunt cious online dating shoddy.

Particularly Bart and Lisa when they become great kids with Shary Bobbins, and later lousy kids for no real reason. It's funny, yes, but I just can't label an episode a classic with characterizations this bad. Shary Bobbins is admittedly nothing more than a thin Mary Poppins knockoff and a one time gimmick character. But, like many other season eight outings, the gimmick works well here.

There are plenty of hilarious moments, most occurring in the first act and some very nice song parodies too. The notion of Marge losing her hair due to stress is handled well but pretty much forgotten once Shary Bobbins arrives.

The laughs become less frequent as the episode progresses and by the third act the story has nothing to do but repeat itself which brings it down a little. Still, a solid gag episode.
