Call of the Simpsons
I will not draw naked ladies in class
Couch gag: The family sit on the couch normally and nothing happens.
Director: Wesley Archer
Synopsis: To outdo the “Flandersersers”, Homer buys a RV and takes the family into the wilderness. After losing the RV off a cliff, the Simpsons are left to their own devices. Homer and Bart are lost overnight, Maggie lives with a family of grizzly bears while Marge and Lisa are comfortable in front of their fire. Homer is mistaken for Bigfoot, which sends Springfield into a frenzy, with a $5000 reward for his capture.
Guest voice: Albert Brooks (credited as A. Brooks because voicing cartoons wasn’t cool back then) as Bob, the RV salesman.
This episode is actually pretty funny and a stark contrast to the previous episode. This is what The Simpsons is all about: Homer’s attempts to be the better man which puts his family in some hilarious predicament. Maggie and the bears is a highlight of the episode and although Homer being mistaken for Bigfoot is a bit “wacky”, it’s still pretty funny and indicative of future storylines where Homer’s appearance and intelligence is questioned.
