    Rate and Review: ''Bart's Haircut''

    Original Airdate: November 15, 1987. Bart's hair is too long and he is sent to a barber. His hair cut is too short and he tries multiple ways to hide it.



    Rate and stuff.

    Trivia:

    ◾Life in Hell: Binky makes a cameo.
    ◾It is notable that when Bart's haircut is finished, he looks like Kearney.
    ◾When Bart looks in the mirror and screams when he sees his bald head, his mouth in the mirror is bigger than Bart's actual mouth.
    Just because I'm stupider than them, they think they're smarter than me!

    More Trivia:

    • This short convinced George W. Bush to run for president.
    • The barber in this episode is actually intended to be Homer, at 60 years old. This is because Bart was originally intended to have power over time and space.
    • This short takes place in Season 12, because the glue Bart uses is actually made from Duncan, from the famously well recieved episode,"Saddlesore Galactica".


    4/5

    Pretty funny. It's cool how they kept the design for the barber around for so long. 4.5/5

    How are we supposed to review the old shorts? Are we suppose for take in account when they were made or just judge them like someone made it today?

    If I'm judging it like someone made it today... 1 out of 5.

    Seriously awful.

    1/5 for simpsons shorts equals 5/5 for a modern day simpsons episode.

    I don't think you can judge shorts and full length episodes on the same standard. They're just too different.
    My Simpsons Season Rankings:
    6 > 7 > 3 > 5 > 8 > 4 > 2 > 1 > 9 > 15 > 13 > 14 > 10 > 16 > 12 > 11 > 22 > 21 > 17 > 25 > 24 > 18 > 26 > 20 > 19 > 23

    Eh, not great. There's no real joke at the end. Probably the weakest short i've seen. 1/5

    More trivia: The animation of Bart at the barber's was reused in the Deep, Deep Trouble music video.

    I've got a couple of problems with this: One, how does having long hair make you a 'beatnik', and two, the family were real jerks there. Even I wouldn't laugh if someone turned bald.

    EDIT: And how can Homer laugh at Bart being bald even though Homer has been virtually bald since Maggie was born?

    Yeah, the family was kind of assholes to Bart in this short, but they've laughed at similar things in the past, so I'll kind of let it slide. For the actual short, I didn't really laugh at anything and it didn't do that much for me. Not bad, but not good, 2.5/5 or 2 /5 for the poll.

    Imagine if this episode was remade today as a 21 minute episode. They'd probably do that if they were running out ideas.

    No offence, but I wouldn't really go admitting on public forums that you get annoyed at 1-minute long cartoons that are purely played for laughs. Maybe you could say that for the 22-minute long episodes, yeah, but not stuff like this.

    I couldn't find this short in english, so I guess I can't review by dialogue, so this is just a video-based review.

    Act 1: Uh, I think this was funny? 3.5/5

    Act 2: Bart looks like a tool without hair.

    Act 3: Pretty funny, pretty bald. 4.5/5

    Act 4: I have no clue what happened, but everyone else laughed so I did too. monkey/5

    Overall: I guess 4/5 even though it was in german and I don't speak german.

    but it seemed funny.

    It's one of the few shorts I actually really enjoy.

    5/5, I guess. Probably doesn't deserve it.
