    sorry, I meant he's not voice himself as Michael Jackson, he's voicing a different character

    Regarding the vocal impersonator, sources (Al Jean) quote "Michael" as saying, "it's a joke on my brothers". What a character!

    Folks, did you ever hear about the table read at Sandy Gallin's house? Dan Castellaneta (Homer) was late!

    Ted Nugent did a voice for a later ep (pedo). Pull that one too.

    My theory is, his recording contract wouldn't allow him to sing on the show for some reason.

    The episode is still on-demand for xfinity customers. I used to play "Lisa, It's Your Birthday" for my sister every year, I'm sure it will still be on youtube.

    I don't care if they pull it now, a few decades too late (Pee-wee Herman got his show cancelled the next day just for jackin' it in a porno theater, 90s priorities). Go for it. I'm not trying to diminish it by saying they should pull other pedos too, why would they even have someone like Ted Nugent on the show? Steven Tyler and the rest of Aerosmith, Rolling Stones, there are lots of guest actors they've had on whose pasts are ignored because "celebrity" .

    (If you want to understand how hard it was to not only accuse MJ but deal with his fans, episode is actually pretty accurate, compared to their usual kissupfests, of MJ-hysteria at the time.)

    What a load of nonsense - it's pretty obvious as to why they have 'banned' the episode, and that is simply for fear of appearing to condone Jackson. It's the classic "anyone who fails to sufficiently condemn the witch is suspected of being a witch" thing, if you do not sufficiently demonstrate your purity you are by default deemed tainted.


    I despise this sort of revisionist nonsense but thankfully own the episode on DVD so they can go right ahead in their attempts to expunge it from history.


    I honestly can't see anything in this episode of a cartoon which features someone who doesn't even look like Jackson could be perceived as grooming.


    I think there's some confirmation bias going on, Jackson was a paedophile so everything that has anything to do with him had to involve his paedophilia. People see what they expect to see, so once they knew, they went back and watched the episode again and "oh yeah..."

    The family was willing to let him have a sleepover in Bart's room at at the time, and they weren't even on the crazy celeb worship and terrible excuses side of MJ worship, this was just some patient, another adult man, who came home with homer after his psych hold. Taking a few steps back and saying "Oh, we maybe have had a hand in softening his image and giving him the characterization of someone you could leave your kids alone with." is not a bad thing.

    "The guest star used us" line is laughable.

    I checked on youtube and "Stark Raving Dad" is still available but it is costing $19.99 instead of $1.99 for other episodes.

    While we're on this topic, it's strange how only the first three seasons are available for purchase on Google Play and YouTube. You'd think they'd be selling either none of it or more than just that. Futurama has all... 10 seasons(???) for sale.

    Season 3 is no longer available for purchase on Google Play. The season (and Stark Raving Dad) is still available for digital purchase on Amazon.

    I now own the episode on DVD, iTunes (SD, not the versions cropped to HD), Amazon, and YouTube. Only one I’m missing is the Google Play one.
    ah (as in apple)-tuh-eef

    The UK courts exonerated Glitter on his first child abuse claims. If it weren't for the horrifying and undeniable evidence of his hard drive he'd no doubt still be a free man now. One 'not guilty' verdict doesn't sponge away every allegation. Nor does it imply someone is guilty but got away with it. Court cases also tend to be about specific crimes - so you can be found not guilty of those but still be guilty of others.

    The prices on eBay are getting ridiculous:

    a day after this news i looked on ebay and could not find a single complete season 3 set. several people selling individual discs that weren't disc 1 and the entire set without disc 1. gotta love ppl shamelessly removing their listings

    I still have my season 3 DVD intact. To preserve my good image (don't look up my 2012-13 posts) I will follow suit with the allegations and respond by deleting my DVD from my shelf, and putting it in the controversial vault with all Roman Polanski movies and tapings of the Cosby Show, never to be seen again

    You're BoJack Horseman, no cure for that.

    you could still get season 3 at walmart for like 10 bucks a couple years back. i'm sure right before this news there were tons of complete pristine sets on ebay for like 5 dollars. it is dumb stuff
