Simpsons Shorts Football (restored)


Bart attempts to catch a football thrown by Homer and Homer offers him frosty chocolate milkshakes for doing so. While trying to catch it, he dodges a fence, a ditch and the Barking Dog before running off a cliff. Once more, Bart attempts to catch the ball, but this time with Lisa and Maggie cheering him on. This time, Bart catches the ball, but in his mouth. As Bart, Lisa, Maggie, and Dad go to an ice cream parlor to get frosty chocolate milkshakes, Bart still has the ball in his mouth. When Homer threatens to drink his milkshake, Lisa puts the straw in Bart's mouth so he can drink it.


  • Even though Homer said "Chocolate milkshakes", in the ending, they were actually drinking strawberry milkshakes.
