A good, on-model comic version of an unmade Simpsons minisode, "Nazis on Tap."

"Bart the Daredevil" was originally too short to air, so Al Jean, Mike Reiss and the staff wrote this parody short. It was probably recorded as a joke to violate all of Matt Groening's rules about the show not getting too "cartoony" in a 40s Tex Avery/Looney Tunes kind of way.

Of course, Matt Groening thought the piece was too weird and nixed it, thinking it was too early in the series to present something so offbeat to the audience.

Some of the dialogue here is transcribed incorrectly. "Catching Hitler was neato" is garbled to "Gee, Hitler was neato", and "Uber hearing" becomes "Hoover hearing." It's also done in Simpsons comic format, rather than storyboard format.

It probably would have had wacky, off-model animation, although maybe just in terms of its movement, which a comic won't convey.

By Phil Ortiz, who worked on both the show and comic. The 4-page comic was drawn for WizardWorld Philadelphia in 2016.

Audio was released online by storyboard artist John Mathot in 2006. And me.

Hey Boo-Boo! Yogi Bear debuted as a character 63 years ago! Kids who grew up with him are senior citizens and no longer the target audience for this show! If you think that a funny cartoon starring Yogi Bear should look and feel exactly the same now as it did in 1958, and appeal to the exact same audience, you're wrong! The fact that this looks like a goofy comedy show is a good thing, as it suggests the creators have put some thought into amusing themselves, rather than just reproducing zombie versions of 60+ year old characters! Hey Boo-Boo! If you want shows that look like the 50s-60s Yogi and Huckleberry Hound, those shows already exist! Let's go get that pic-a-nic-basket!

(It actually does bother me a little that cartoons now tend to look like their own storyboards, with all the quirks of a digital storyboarding doodle, but I doubt it bothers the target audience.)
