The Simpsons Shorts; Gone Fishin, Skateboarding Reviews

Short #20: Gone Fishin

It's another basic concept for this short. Bart and Homer go fishing and an adventure ensues. I see it as more of a technical achievement, though this is a funny short. Klasky-Csupo was able to show bigger improvements as far as small things like a waterfall and the boat moving in the same shot. There's not much to complain. A little strange Homer being serious about catching fish, but other than that, a hell of a way to end the first month of 1988.

Score: 7 out of 10

Short #21: Skateboarding

Another great showcasing by Klasky-Csupo and a great funny short to boot. It shows what makes Bart one of the best characters of the franchise. He is an ass to his sisters and tries to be a show off with his skateboarding. It's cartoon like, but watching Lisa and Maggie best him is worth watching. As far animation goes, the modeling is getting closer, and the neighborhood is a big improvement over some of the earlier shorts like Football. This is a must watch.

Score: 8 out of 10

More kid antics next week. The kids anger Homer in The Pagans, and Bart hides in Closeted.
