Recap / The Simpsons S 13 E 18 I Am Furious Yellow

After being inspired by a cartoonist during Career Day at Springfield Elementary, Bart creates an Internet cartoon based on Homer's anger problems called Angry Dad. Meanwhile, the Comic Book Guy has his hands full when Marvel Comics man Stan Lee begins harassing him and scaring off his customers.

    "He can't be the Hulk! I'm the Hulk!"
  • Actually, That's My Assistant: A pretty pathetic example when Kirk speaks at career day.

    Kirk: No, I'm his assistant, But one time, he was sick and he let me do it.... I totally messed it up.
  • Author Avatar: Bart creates a cartoon about his father, just like Matt Groening based the Simpsons on his own family.
  • Biting-the-Hand Humor, Ink-Suit Actor, and Take That: Bart's voice actor for the Angry Dad Internet cartoons is based on Dan Castellaneta (the voice actor best known for playing Homer Simpson), who gets the job for capturing the spirit of Angry Dad ("Whoo-hoo! When do I get paid?"), but won't be paid until 2012 ("D'oh!")
  • Body Horror: When trying to suppress his anger, boils keep popping out of Homer's neck until a whole bunch of them spring up.
