Episode 6 – Like Father, Like Clown
Couch Gag – This time Bart arrives late, jumping into a laying down position on the family.
Plot Synopsis – When the Simpsons have Krusty the Clown over for dinner, he says grace in Hebrew, and recalls his difficult relationship with his father, a rabbi. Bart and Lisa try to reunite the two of them.
What is going on really – We start with the latest episode of the Krusty the Clown show. When Krusty cancels the dinner with Bart who saved him from jail (this goes against the Mr Burns reaction to Homer) feeling heartbroken once again sends his membership back to Krusty.
After writing a letter to Krusty, Krusty reluctantly agrees to go for dinner with the Simpsons as we learn more about Krusty’s past and his relationship with his father a rabbi.
We learn that the relationship between the two as Krusty wanted to go against his father’s wishes and become a Clown over a Rabbi. The Simpsons family try to help bring the two back together.
Final Thoughts – This is an important episode because it continues to show the world building for thee Springfield with the people outside the Simpsons family. It also does offer the chance to not judge an entertainer by their religion, but I do feel certain moments are slow in pace here.
