Fan Fic: Hommer Simpson

The cover for the soundtrack to the series.

D'h.
— Hommer Simpson

Hommer Simpson is a series of animated shorts made by Hutz (and supposedly uploaded by his friend, Rabbitohs Fan, who is also a mysterious figure) that are loosely based on The Simpsons (and various other TV shows). It began as short, crudely drawn series of skits (generally involving off-kilter interpretations of key Simpsons characters and scenes) and developed into an emotional story of loss, conspiracies and genocide, and a much better drawn one at that - the fifth in the series is actually live-action. The series is still ongoing.

The story mainly revolves around Hommer Simpson, who, after being fired from work for wearing a shirt, is responsible for the death of his baby Maggie. His guilt over this will drive the narrative of the next few episodes. Around this, there are ongoing subplots that all seem related to a power plant nuclear spill which is slowly turning the residents of Springfield into murderous lunatics.

There are also "ads" for the episodes, one of which is a rap video, but most of which involve an in-universe TV show called Seinbluth, which appears to be a mashup of Seinfeld, Arrested Development and about a billion Australian cultural references.

The first episode was released in 2011: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0Jh_IxUiW1I

Hommer Simpson contains examples of:

  • Abusive Parents: Over and over again. Hommer is responsible for the death of his daughter Maggie, but is also shown to be repeatedly rude and abusive to Bart and (especially) Lissa.
  • Adult Fear: Hommer experiences every parent's worst nightmare at the beginning of episode 1.
  • Adventures in Comaland: Hommer Simpson 5.
  • Ancient Conspiracy: Apparently, the Stonecutters.
  • Arc Words: "Maggie is dead of slept" and varations thereof.
    • Homer's drawn out, pained "D'ohhhhhhh...Owwwww" is repeated several times.
    • Kunt Brockman usually begins his newscasts with a monotone "Live from news".
  • Alternate Reality Game: seems to be headed in this direction.
  • Ax-Crazy: Probably due to the effects of the power plant, many characters display this; William (Milhouse) is probably the biggest example, but Skinner and (apparently) Ned Flinders display this too.
  • Black Comedy: Pitch-black and often surreal.
  • Driven to Suicide: Though it's a little unclear, it would seem that Man Mole's repeated suggestion that Hommer should drink Doif is his way of telling Hommer to commit suicide.
  • Eats Babies: The Stonecutters believe that there are too many children being born with free will. Their solution? They will breed these children more efficiently and then eat them.
  • Mind Screw: Utterly. It's as if it were a product of the minds that brought us The Twilight Zone, only under the influence of angel dust... and ailed with schizophrenia.
  • Mood Whiplash: Episode 1 plays as a very badly drawn Simpsons episode with loosely approximated versions of familiar dialogue ("Eat the clothes") until the last 30 seconds, when a nude Hommer discovers a dead Maggie in her crib.
    • Episode 4 goes from extreme to extreme with every scene.
  • Nightmare Sequence: When Hommer slips into a "comma" in Treehouse of Hommer, this is what he seems to experience. The whole thing is a surreal wad of dream logic, from talking dogs to a horse man fucking Darth Vader.
  • Putney Swope Panic: The risk of your cognition being irrevocably warped runs high.
  • Rhymes on a Dime: "I hate these Drugrats! I hate being a Grugrat! I've lost control over where my life was at!"
  • Rite of Passage: The Homm Grumm is a Simpsons initiation rite. Every generation of Simpson has had a Grumm. Hutz wishes that Maggie was alive to have hers.
  • Satan: Armin Tamzarian
  • Secret Circle of Secrets: The Stonecutters.
  • Shout-Out: Loads, but Hommer Simpson 4's "You're Breckin Meyer heart" is a reference to the actor who played Jon in the Garfield movie.
    • Patty's new boyfriend is Grug, an Australian children's book character.
    • Elmo and the Bananas in Pyjamas are members of the Stonecutters.
    • "Please let this be a normal field trip... In Australia? No way!"
    • Several lines are taken directly from episodes of The Simpsons and shoehorned in to scenes without rhyme or reason such as "If you get hit, it's your own fault" or "You're homely as a mule's butt."
  • Strange Syntax Speaker: Much of the dialogue sounds like it has been run back and fourth through Google Translate a few times.
  • Tragic Hero: Hommer. The entire series is practically his downfall.
  • The Wiki Rule: Yes, it exists.
  • Vomit Indiscretion Shot: Troy McLarry during the Doif commercial.
    • Later, Hommer after he drinks some Fosters.
  • Would Hurt a Child: The Reveal in Hommer Simpson 4 shows that Ned Flinders, possessed by Armin Tamzarian, has killed and mutilated Todd.
