The 1984 Los Angeles Summer Olympics were an Olympics held in Los Angeles, USA.


Krusty does a promotion for the 1984 Summer Olympic Games with his Krusty Burger chain, which is the "Official Meat-Flavored Sandwich of the 1984 Olympics". The promotion offers scratch-and-win game cards in which people can scrape off the name of the event from the game card, and if the U.S. wins a gold medal, that person wins a free Krusty Burger. However, the Soviet Union boycotted the Olympics, and with this the U.S easily dominates every event, Krusty's accountant tells him he will lose $44 million due to the promotion. On air, Krusty angrily says he will personally spit in every 50th burger. Homer, however, finds those odds to be acceptable, and continues getting a steady supply of free Krusty Burgers from redeeming his winning game cards. The day that Lisa was born Homer won a free burger from the promotion after the USA won the final of the 100-meter butterfly.[1]

Carlos Lopes took part in the 1984 Summer Olympics and became the oldest marathon winner at 38 years old.[2]
