The Simpsons: Tales From the Public Domain

When Homer gets a notice from the library that he has a book of classic tales that's years overdue, he finds it on the shelf and reads three stories: The Odyssey (where Homer and his buddies try to get home after fighting the Trojans), Joan of Arc (where Lisa leads the French against the British with the help of God), and Hamlet (where Bart tries to kill Moe after Moe kills Homer in order to marry Marge).

Episode Notes
Chalkboard: Vampire is not a career choice

Couch: The Simpsons rushing to and sitting on the couch is animated in pencil-drawn flipbook style, with the pages flipped by a pair of live-action hands.

Episode Quotes
King of Troy: (Flanders) Now, throughout history, when people get wood, they'll think of Trojans.
Homer: (back home) Heh, heh, heh. Trojans!
Lisa: What are you laughing at, dad?
Homer: If I'm laughing at what I think I am, it's very funny!

Krusty: I wouldn't say King Milhouse is a loser, but that was the twelfth girl she struck out with this week!
Milhouse: Boil him in oil!
Krusty: So, no 10:30 show?

Homer: (after eating 4 pigs) Oh, I'm still hungry.
Circes: Haven't you eaten enough of your friends?
Homer: Those were my friends?!
Circes: Yes, I've been saying that for hours.

Bart: The play's the thing, in which I'll catch the conscience of the king.
Claudius (Moe): Catch my conscience? What are you talking about?
Bart: Hey! You're not supposed to be able to hear me! It was a soliloquy.
Claudius: Oh, then here's my soliloquy. Note to self, kill that kid.
