Dizzneeland, The Happiest Hell on Earth
Last week’s episode of the Simpsons titled The Man Who Came To Be Dinner had just a little bit of everything to keep me entertained. I actually saved it on my Tivo which I haven’t done with a Simpsons episode in ages. Not since the Simpsons visited EFCOT Center have I been so enchanted.
1. They go to Dizzneeland – there are a VARIETY of nods to the park that make the episode worth watching.
2. They make numerous references to Star Wars and “Dizznee’s” relationship in having attractions related to it in the park.
3. Their version of the Enchanted Tiki Room combines Start Wars with Jabba The Tiki Hut!
4. They go into OUTER SPACE and visit the planet Rigel VII. Not to be confused with the real life Rigel, a star found in the constellation Orion.
This episode also didn’t follow the typical [insert guest star voice and one time character here] formula. Definitely worth seeing.
