Recap / The Simpsons S 22 E 1 Elementary School Musical

Lisa gets in touch with her inner hipster after going to a music camp. Krusty is nominated for a Nobel Prize but it's a trap.

  • Added Alliterative Appeal: While looking for evidence that Krusty made a cultural contribution, Homer and Bart find a video of The Electric Company with a blackboard. The blackboard has the phrase "Gus got gas and the guy got gum".
  • Adolf Hitlarious: A clock tower has two dolls hitting a Hitler-shaped doll with hammers.
  • Guest Star: Lea Michele, Cory Monteith and Amber Riley as themself from Glee.
  • Hypocritical Humor: Right after telling Krusty that Europeans don't use the prefix "Euro" in everything, the judge orders Euro-guards to use Euro-cuffs on him. The Euro-cuffs do look like the symbol for Euro the currency.
  • Plagiarism in Fiction: Krusty is lured into the Netherlands where he can be prosecuted for stealing jokes from a Dutch clown.
  • Shout-Out: The title is obviously referencing High School Musical.
  • Too Dumb to Live: While in jail, Krusty sings about having to become a prison snitch to get out and the fellow inmates who hear him beat him up.
