The Simpsons: Stark Raving Dad and Worms

I've been watching Vuzu (channel 123) on DSTV a lot recently, and for the past while, they've been showing The Simpsons reruns, right from season 1, which is awesome. The other night I watched "Stark Raving Dad", the first episode of the third season (debuted way back in 1991), which had a special guest appearance by John Jay Smith, which actually turned out to be Michael Jackson (RIP). The singing voice was provided by Kipp Lennon though.

What does this have to do with Worms though, you ask? Well, this episode was special in many ways, but one which I have thought about a lot in the past was this thing about Worms. In Worms, the first game in the series, you were able to have the worms speak in different accents and such, and one of the themes was "The Simpsons", and it was one of the best. At least a few of the samples used for this theme were taken from the episode, "Stark Raving Dad".

A few you may notice:

"Oh, gimme, gimme, gimme, gimme, gimme!"

"It's all over!"

"I'm Bart Simpson. Who the hell are you?"

Whether they were taken directly from the episode, or recorded by some one else, I don't know.

It's not an abbreviation of anything. It just means the best of the best...
