The Funeral is the ninth Simpsons short and originally aired on The Tracey Ullman Show on October 4, 1987.

Plot Edit

The short begins with Bart, Lisa, and Maggie playing with their toys in the living room. Marge and Homer enter the room with very sad news - Uncle Hubert passed away. The children wonder what "passed away" means. Bart explains three words to the family "The dude died" as they mourn. At the Funeral Home, the owner tells the family that now is the right time to go and say their goodbyes. The family is sad, but Bart has a big grin on his face because he can't wait to see a dead body. The family then looks at Uncle Hubert in the coffin, then Bart faints at the sight of the body. When the members march up a hill to the grave, Bart starts complaining because the burial is taking to long. So he just runs up to the grave and directs the guys holding the casket to the grave; however, Homer covers Bart's mouth at the right time. When the family is driving home, Marge tells the kids that they were naughty and she and Homer were disappointed in them. Homer scolds them by saying "This is absolutely the last funeral we ever take you kids to!" Lisa and Bart get enraged by the saying of this.
