Offended by the female stereotypes embodied in the new talking Malibu Stacy doll ("Don't ask me, I'm just a girl!"), Lisa tries to introduce a progressive alternative. Meanwhile, Grampa Simpson takes a job at Krusty Burger in order to feel young and hip.
!!This episode contains examples of:
* BrickJoke: Homer dancing on the giant keyboard at the toy store.
** Homer tries to sway Maggie (who's spelling her name on an Etch-a-Sketch) into playing with a dangerous fort playset that electrocutes him, cuts him, and launches a missile into his mouth. Later, in the car, we find out that Bart bought the toy.
* BurgerFool: Grampa gets a job at Krusty Burger in order to regain his lost youth, only to learn that the good Lord has made people old so they can find fault with everything on Earth.
* NoodleIncident: Lisa once tossed red paint at the executives of the Keebler company. All we know is that Marge also knows about it and the executives were upset over...whatever they did to deserve that (if they did anything at all).
* ShoutOut: One of the talking Malibu Stacy dolls apparently has a voice box that was supposed to go inside a Franchise/SpiderMan doll ("My spidey sense is tingling. Anybody call for a webslinger?"). This is a reference to an underground group that switched the voice boxes to some talking Barbie dolls and talking G.I. Joe action figures to make a point about sexism in toys.
* SoapboxSadie: Lisa. Deconstructed when Lisa's campaign for the Lisa Lionheart doll goes bust (but reconstructed slightly when a girl [who looks like one of Lisa's nameless friends in the early episodes, back when she had a small circle of friends instead of being a friendless nerd] buys her Lisa Lionheart doll) and discussed when Marge points out that she's been protestinng against social injustice an awful lot, from making her family march in a gay rights parade to boycotting FOX because the company owns chemical weapon plants in Syria.
* SpecialGuest: Kathleen Turner as Stacy [=LaVelle=].
