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
Now has a character sheet in progress.
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.
- Adaptational Sexuality: Patty is canonically lesbian but in this series is straight (or at least bisexual) in order to pair her with Grug.
- 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".
- Art Shift: The first two episodes are done in a considerably cruder style than the rest of the series. As well, additional stylistic departures appear in each new installment starting with episode 4.
- 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.
- Development Hell: Episode 7, William Drive Bus, was first teased in 2012, and hardly anything has materialized since. A trailer has been released
- 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.
- Groin Attack: Happens to Hommer twice over course of the series. In episode 2, he mutilates his own genitals (possibly attempting a self-vasectomy), while in episode 6 he is forced to endure a painful bout of penile torture at the hands of Marge.
- Heel Realization: "I did it. I killed them all."
- 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. The penultimate scene has ManMole instructing a tearful, guilt-wracked Hommer to kill himself with a wrench to atone for the deaths of Maggie and several others who died due to his neglect, including Apu, Santa's Little Helper, and Todd Flinders. The last scene is Ringo Starr writing Hommer a thank you e-mail for the "framed baby Simpson" (a picture of Maggie's blue and lifeless body). ("I hung it on me wall!")
- Mr. Exposition: Kunt Brockman.
- 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.
- Raging Stiffie: "D'oh, bonner, not now. Have it later."
- 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. It involves watching a movie called "Springfield" about Lenny (dressed as Disco Stu) and his pet cat Springfield
- 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.
- Hommer watches Stuart Little multiple times. Stuart also branched out into doing a sex ed video and an ass-to-ass tutorial.
- The Stonecutters' plan bears more than a passing resemblance to A Modest Proposal.
- The final scene in Episode 3 rather resembles Dr. Tyrell's death in Blade Runner.
- 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.
- Take That!:
- "Ted Talks" features familiar Simpsons characters with Ted Cruz's face saying misquoted Simpsons lines. Much of the dialogue is taken verbatim from a Buzzfeed video where Cruz demonstrates his impressions of these characters.
- The dialogue at the end between Kunt Brockman and Artie Pie is based on a Good Morning America interview with Ted and Heidi Cruz about these impressions. ("His jokes are from the 8-year-old joke book.")
- 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 (which may or may not be a Take That! at the brand.)
- Would Hurt a Child: The Reveal in Hommer Simpson 4 shows that Ned Flinders, possessed by Armin Tamzarian, has killed and mutilated Todd.
