Butterfinger

A typical Butterfinger bar.

Nobody better lay a finger on my Butterfinger!
―Bart Simpson

Butterfinger is a popular peanut-butter and chocolate candy bar. There have been 150 commercials for Butterfinger which featured The Simpsons beginning in 1988 up through today.

Many of the commercials featured Homer trying to get Bart's Butterfinger, but would be one-upped by Bart each time. Each commercial ended with Bart saying the candy's slogan, "Nobody better lay a finger on my Butterfinger!" In the late 1990s, this was changed to “Bite My Butterfinger!”, then in 2001, it was changed to "Nothing Like a Butterfinger!", while in 2010, a slightly reworded version of the Nobody better lay a finger slogan Nobody's gonna lay a finger on my Butterfinger! was introduced.

Most of these advertisements have been released on The Simpsons DVD sets as bonus features along with other commercials.

All Butterfinger commercials were available on iTunes and Netflix. The following is high quality than the VHS versions of these commercials: The Butterfinger Group (1988), Bully - Maggie's Stick (1991), The Karate Lesson (1992), Butterfinger Ice-Cream Bars (1991), Maggie's Party (1992), Bart's Locker (1993), The Raid (1994), The Shrink, Bart's Homework (1994) and Bart's Nightmare (2001).

On April 1, 2013, Butterfinger announced on their Facebook page that Bart Simpson would again be their mascot. Advertising is expected to come later this year. On September 25th of the same year, Butterfinger issued another "Who Stole Bart Simpson's Butterfinger" commercial/contest, this time on the web.

Trivia Edit

  • In Barting Over, after watching the Baby Stinkbreath commercial, Bart says "I was in a commercial?" and then pulls out a Butterfinger and starts eating it. This is an obvious reference to the commercials.
  • Butterfingers are again referenced in Sweets and Sour Marge where Chief Wiggum attempts to burn them, but as he puts it "Even the fire won't take them".
  • On a Season 8 DVD commentary, Matt Groening says that Milhouse was created for and first appeared in the commercials.
  • The Simpsons "Stolen Butterfinger" in one minute length commercial in "Who Shot Mr. Burns?" on DVD in December 30, 2008.
