Treehouse of Horrors: The Raven
This "scene" is taken from the "Treehouse of Horror" episode , the first in a series of Halloween specials, which was the third episode of the second season originally aired on Oct 25, 1990.
The "Treehouse of Horrors" episode has since become a yearly tradition and since 1995 Bongo comics also produce a yearly comicbook entitled "Bart Simpsons Treehouse of Horrors".
The episode takes place in the family's treehouse where Bart and Lisa are telling each other scary stories but unknown to them Homer is eavesdropping outside.
The final result is that as Lisa and Bart settle down for the night Homer has a sleepless night.
The last story told, by Lisa, is "The Raven" by Edgar Allan Poe. In this portrayal of the story Bart is depicted as The Raven and Homer as the lead character in the poem and Maggie and Lisa as seraphim.
Marge also appears briefly as a painting of Lenore. As Bart, Lisa and Maggie climb down for a peaceful nights sleep Homer is scared witless, and as he mutters to himself about hating Halloween a Raven Bart appears at the window laughing at him.
This impressive set features a 4 inch tall Homer, a 2 inch high Lisa articulated at the neck, a 1 1/4 inches Maggie who is also articulated at the nec and a 1 1/4 inch Bart as the Raven on a large custom base.
Radioactive Man and Fallout Boy
Taken from the second episode of the seventh season "Radioactive Man" guest starred Mickey Rooney as himself. The plot sees a film version of the comicbook being set up in Springfield.
Bart and Millhouse are excited when they hear that a film version of their favorite comicbook, Radioactive Man, is to be filmed in Springfield.
More excitingly the production company are searching for a young actor in Springfield to play Fallout Boy, Radioactive Man's sidekick and companion. Bart auditions, of course, but despite doing well is told he is an inch too short.
Determined to get the part he tries several ploys to look taller but by this time a reluctant Millhouse has been given the part but he later disappears during filming of the most expensive scene in the film.
Bart goes on a search and eventually finds him in the treehouse. Despite encouragement from both Bart and Mickey Rooney Millhouse refuses to continue filming and so production on the film is halted and the film goes bankrupt due to the price hiking of Springfield's residents and their unscrupulous behavior.
Homer is cast here in the role of Radioactive Man and stands 4 1/8 inches tall to the top of his head and beside him is his loyal companion Fallout Boy who measures 2 3/8 inches tall and is articulated at the neck.
Homer and Krusty: Clown Homer
"Hommie the Clown" or "Homer the Clown" as the episode is more often referred to was the 15th episode of season 6 and is a skit based on the comedy character Homey the Clown from the comedy show "In Living Color" also aired on Fox at the time.
After years of wasteful gambling habits and lighting cigarettes by burning $100 bills Krusty finds himself in deep financial trouble and in an attempt to make some money he decides to open a Clowns School.
After graduating he decides to impersonate Krusty and appear at several public events that Krusty had previously turned down.
The stress of keeping up the charade also causes Homer to quit but after receiving several benefits from authority figures and businesses.
Things however get out of hand when, mistaking Homer for Krusty, Fat Tony's Gang kidnap him. In order to be spared Krusty and Homer are forced to entertain the gang and they have to perform an eleborate Loop de Loop trick for the gang.
Watch Homer and Krusty Loop de Loop as Homer clings fearlessly onto Krusty's head with this elaborate action figure set from McFarlane's.
A 3-inch Homer sits on Krusty's back with articulation in his neck and ankles. Krusy measures 2 1/4-inches in height from head to toes and is articulated at the neck and ankles.
The Loop de Loop is approx 4 3/8-inches in height and has magnets at the top and bottom to match the magnets in Krusty's shoes.
Good & Evil Homer
We all have a good and bad side don't we?
Well now you can meet both of Homer's.
Evil Homer stands 3 7/8 tall to the tip of his horns with articulation at the neck, shoulders, and wrists. Good Homer stands a little taller with his halo at 4 1/2-inches and articulation at the neck, shoulders and wrists.
