"Marge vs. Singles, Seniors, Childless Couples and Teens and Gays" (also known by its alternative title "Marge vs. Everyone") is the eighth episode of Season 15.

SynopsisEdit

After Lindsey Naegle forms an anti-children group, Marge fights back with a rocking event led with Mr. Burns' power. The episode originally aired on January 4, 2004. It was written by Jon Vitti and was directed by Bob Anderson.

Full Story Edit

When Bart and Lisa fight over which show they should watch, they accidentally change the channel to a show hosted by a children's entertainer named Roofi. This does not appeal to Bart and Lisa, but Maggie likes it so much Marge buys her a Roofi CD to be played everywhere, 24 hours a day without end, much to the annoyance of Bart, Lisa, and Homer, who's obvious dislike of the song is second to Maggie's like of it. Marge still refuses to let them turn it off or watch anything else. Marge goes as far as to even buy tickets to Roofi's concert, which is to be held at Cletus Spuckler's farm. However, thanks to the person who promoted the concert, it ends up packed and begins to rain causing all the babies diapers to become wet. Soon, a riot ensues with the babies referred to as "Tot Offensive".

In a response to the disaster, all the childless adults of Springfield, outraged at paying high taxes for the damages the babies have caused are revolted. Lindsey Naegle arrives to form an anti-youth group named "Singles, Seniors, Childless Couples And Teens And Gays Against Parasitic Parents" (SSCCATAGAPP) to lobby and deprive Springfield of all child-friendly things. but 12 year old emily sanchess lead singer of emily sanchess and the rainbow rockers" decides to turn lindseys group into a kids vs adults battle of the bands and sings a song about it with bart and lisa as her back up singers Let's Have a Battle (Of the Bands) and the kids argue with the adults on who will win bart lisa sherri terri nelson and millhouse start their own kids band called power rockers while marge homer lenny carl and lindsey start their band called the misfits marge calls herself phezzaz while homer calls himself rocky then emily anouces the battle will begin tomorow at springfeild park

Behind the LaughterEdit

Similarities to Woodstock and Altamont Edit

The concert is a spoof of the Woodstock Festival and Altamont Music Festival. Like Woodstock, the event was held on a farm (owned by Cletus Spuckler) and caused expensive damage to the property, and more people showed up at the concert than intended. Babies are also seen cavorting in stereotypical hippie fashion; passing around pacifiers like bongs and dancing naked. Like Altamont, the outcome of the concert turned into a public-relations disaster for a certain group (in Altamont's case, the hippie counter-culture; in the Roofi case, for parents with children). The Rolling Stones' "Gimme Shelter" is played over scenes before the concert; likely a reference to the concert movie Gimme Shelter which documented the Altamont festival.

Reception Edit
