Throwback Thursday is here again and today it’s 9 years since we saw Abe Simpson become a bullfighter in a contentious bull-fighting ring after Springfield is awarded an NFL franchise – which Grampa ends up blowing their chances of actually getting it – which leads to Abe going to an assisted-suicide center. The scheme never goes through, and when Abe finally realizes that he isn’t dead, gets a new lease of life and decides to live it up, ergo bull-fighting.
Also today, on this date in 1934, Carl Kasell, radio personality and guest starring as himself in “Pay Pal“, was born; then, in 1941, Dr. Demento, also a radio broadcaster and guest starring as himself in “Sideshow Bob Roberts“; and lastly, Pamela Reed, actress and guest starring as Simpsons neighbor, Ruth Powers in “New Kid on the Block”, “Marge on the Lam” and “Strong Arms of the Ma”.
A short Throwback this week. See you next time!
