YMMV / The Simpsons S 4 E 9 Mr Plow

  • Fridge Horror, Harsher in Hindsight, and Nice Job Breaking It, Homer: Homer (as a teenager) ruined Barney's life by giving him beer the night before his SATs, and before Barney became a drunk, he was an honors student with his sights set for Harvard University. And if that's not depressing enough, watch Barney's short film on "A Star is Burns" about how his alcoholism has ruined his life.
  • Unintentional Period Piece: Bart asks, "Who the hell is Robin?" when Adam West shows a picture from his Batman days. Only three years after this episode aired, Batman Forever featured Batman teaming up with Robin, which dates this episode. And of course, Batman: The Animated Series had many episodes with Robin.
