The Simpsons Shorts: Bart's Hiccups, The Money Jar Reviews

Short #26: Bart's Hiccups

Hiccups are probably one of the worst things you can have. Everyone has certain methods hat can cure them. Sometimes they work. Sometimes they don't. For the girls, they try a few ineffective but funny methods to rid Bart of his hiccups. I'm not sure if the drink concoction would be edible or spinning helps, but it's a few chuckles. On it's own not a bad short, and check out a little bit of continuity when Bart is spun in the chair.

Score: 7 out of 10

Short #27: The Money Jar

I'm not sure how common it is now these days, but there's that idea of the angel and devil that comes at specific scenes in movies and shows. The kids want bigger allowances but Marge stands her ground. She also doesn't want them getting into the money jar.  Each child goes into that thought of whether they should or not and it's really hilarious. You wouldn't think so, but it captures the idea of what kids think in certain situations.

With both shorts, the animation is impressive getting the house to look like a house and not just a few rooms put together in five minutes. As far as The Money Jar, this is another must watch.

Score: 8 out of 10

We finish up July by finishing up the second season set of shorts. Family adventures are on the way as they visit The Art Museum and get to see gorillas in Zoo Story.
