When we first began to watch ‘The Simpsons’, we didn’t know what to expect. However, over the years, we have learned to think of them as real people who have us captivated by their dysfunctional family. This show is both critically acclaimed and yet, highly criticized for its brazen humor. Nonetheless, we feel involved in their animated lives whether we like it or not. Therefore, whenever something bad happened to them, we did feel their pain. Here are some moments from ‘The Simpsons’ that broke our hearts. Take a look:
1. When Rabbi Hyman Krustofski Died.
He was Krusty’s father who first appeared in season 3 in the episode, ‘Like Father, Like Clown’. They had been estranged for several years because of Krusty’s desire to be a clown. However, they managed to mend their differences but in season 26 in the episode ‘Clown in the Dumps’, Krusty goes to his father after he was humiliated at a roast in his honor and he asked his father if he was funny and he dad said, ‘Eh’ and then died.
2. Homer and Marge’s Love.
Their love has been tested over the years but the biggest test was during the Simpsons Movie he they get in fight and Marge leaves. He then finds a video from Marge which tells him that she’s leaving. She even taped over their wedding to do this!
3. When Homer Dies.
In this episode, Homer ate a poisonous fish and he only has a short time to live. Marge wakes up to find Homer in his chair and not moving. She thinks he’s dead and this moment is very sad.
4. Homer Gives Up Being Smart.
Homer realizes that the only reason he is dumb is because when he was a kid, he lodged a crayon up his nose which has been the cause of his low IQ ever since. He had the crayon removed and begins to get his intelligence back. Lisa loves her new, smart dad but Homer was not prepared for the responsibility of being smart. So, he had a crayon shoved up his nose again but before he did, he writes a beautiful letter to Lisa about how proud he is of her being so smart.
5. Father and the Bride.
In the future, Maggie is set to marry someone who does not approve of her family and he intends to cut them out of the wedding. Lisa refuses to marry him and back in the present day, she realizes how important Homer is to her.
