7 Classic Simpsons Jokes In Foreign Languages

"Wow! A blue car!" in German

Even though The Simpsons airs in over 70 different countries, and it would obviously be impossible to use the original cast of voice actors for non-English versions, there’s still something seems strange about seeing these iconic characters divorced from their equally iconic voices. On the other hand, it makes a good tool for learning another language, if you already have every Simpson’s joke memorized.

8 Weirdly Out Of Character Classic Simpsons Jokes

An ultra-nerdy look back at some of the less cromulent moments in classic Simpsons episodes.

8 Weirdly Out Of Character Classic Simpsons Jokes
Mr. Burns dances super-adeptly With Marge’s Mom (Lady Bouvier’s Lover – Season 5)
One of the weirdest sequences in early-Simpsons history (excluding out-of-reality moments likeHomer’s amazing photographic memory) comes in the touching Season 5 episode “Lady Bouvier’s Lover”; At one point, when Grandpa is falling for Marge’s mother on the dance floor, Mr. Burns abruptly cuts in and asks Marge’s mom to dance, then proceeds to swing danceextremely adeptly while Grandpa gives him the frowning of a lifetime.
Mr. Burns is an actual leper who’s physically incapable of giving a thumbs-up or using a bowling alley hand-fan without struggling, but then for one moment, he’s a super-capable dancer who wins over Mrs. Bouvier with his dexterity? I call “balderdash” and/or “pish posh.” Keep reading

8 Weirdly Out Of Character Classic Simpsons Jokes
Bart Sneaks into “Boobarama” (The Boy Who Knew Too Much – Season 5)
One of the more ambiguous aspects of Bart’s character is his wildly varying opinions on women and sexuality; on one hand, he keeps a Playdude under his bed and has a crush on his older babysitter and Reverend Lovejoy’s daughter, but he also resents Milhouse for constantly kissing a girl and also once declares “Why would anyone want to touch a girl’s butt? That’s where cooties come from!”
So when Bart skips school and sneaks into an R-Rated movie (a few episodes after missing out on his friends sneaking into Barton Fink, but before he and his friends sneak into Naked Lunch in a later episode), it’s a little weird to imagine Bart sitting in an empty theater basking in a film called “Boobarama.” But on the other hand, the title “Boobarama” is giggly and perfect. So, uh, in conclusion, isn’t that what we’re all asking in our own lives, “where’s my elephant?” I know it’s what I’ve been asking. Keep Reading

8 Weirdly Out Of Character Classic Simpsons Jokes
Skinner’s “Principals Do It 9 Months A Year” Apron (Sweet Seymour Skinner’s Baadasssss Song – Season 5)
When Principal Skinner loses his job, we see him at home wearing a “Principals Do It 9 Months A Year” novelty apron, which seems like an oddly racy choice for a guy who’s so straight-laced, he doesn’t even understand the Mad Magazine slogan “Up with mini-skirts!”, he forbids his army platoon to sing a chant about a lady with a hole in her underpants, and he refuses to even say the word “ass” (though he will think it under telepathic circumstances).
Unless, of course, the reverse-implication here is that Skinner doesn’t even get that there’s innuendo in the apron and thinks it’s a very literal slogan about principals’ jobs. This reading is absurd and hilarious, but might not totally be out of the realm of possibility for the man so free of whimsy, he once delivered the line “The times they are a-becoming quite different,” and who took great pleasure in the sound of his uniformed student body blinking in unison. I guess if Skinner’s never even heard of Jurassic Park, we’ll have to chalk this apron thing up to simple ignorance on the part of Billy and the Cloneasaurus' creator. Keep reading

8 Weirdly Out Of Character Classic Simpsons Jokes

Because the Internet exists for the sole purpose of making ordered non-topical lists about our favorite things.

Three quick notes before we begin:

1) None of this is actual criticism; it’s nerdy, “Genius At Work”-shirted nitpicking purely so we Simpsons-obsessives can talk about The Simpsons. Think of it like a Bible Study, but with more important source material.

2) The examples here are confined to seasons 2-10.

3) This list doesn’t include out-of-character moments where the out-of-characterness is the joke itself, like when Homer puts on glasses and instantly recites the Pythagorean Theorem. This is a very important distinction (in a very important internet list).

That said, onto the weird moments in the best thing ever made!
