Check out the animated show Bat out of Hell on YouTube!

From The Simpsons Movie

Finally got around to watching this last night. Funny stuff. Here’s a few excerpts:

MARGE: Wait! There’s something I have to get!
[Runs into house, unlocks “Keepsake Cabinet”, grabs tape, washes dirty dish, and races out, mere steps ahead of fireball]
HOMER: [Marge gets back into car] What’d you get?
MARGE: Our wedding video.
HOMER: We have a wedding video?

and then there’s another video, left by Marge for Homer:

MARGE: Okay, here it goes. Homer, I’ve always stood up for you. When people point out your flaws, I always say, “Well, sometimes you have to stand back to appreciate a work of art.”
HOMER: Way back.
MARGE: Lately, what’s keeping us together is my ability to overlook everything you do. And I overlook these things because…
HOMER: Because?
MARGE: Well, that’s the thing. I just don’t know how to finish that sentence anymore. So I’m leaving with the kids to help Springfield, and we’re never coming back. And to prove to myself that this is the end… I taped this over our wedding video. Good-bye, Homie.

Which is not to be topped by one of many scenes of Homer with his new pet, a pig:

HOMER: Hey, what’s with you?
BART: You really wanna know?
HOMER: Of course I do. What kind of father wouldn’t care about
[sees something]
HOMER: a pig wearing a hat!
[Krusty the Clown is filming a commercial]
DIRECTOR: Action!
KRUSTY: Hey hey! It’s your old pal Krusty for my new pork sandwich, the clogger! If you can find a greasier sandwich, you’re in Mexico!
[He laughs and then takes a bite of the sandwich]
KRUSTY: Mmm!
DIRECTOR: And… we’re clear.
[Krusty spits out the sandwich]
KRUSTY: Perfect. Cut, print, kill the pig.
[a saw is held up to the pig. It squeals in terror]
HOMER: [gasps] What? You can’t kill him if he’s wearing people clothes!
[the pig runs across to Homer, giving him a forlorn look. To the tune of ‘Happy Together’, Homer briefly imagines himself and the pig dancing in a field. He picks up the pig]
HOMER: You’re coming home with me.

Okay, well, I guess it’s better when you see it on the screen. I’d rate it as a slightly-better-than-average episode of the show.
