| TV Show Information
Battling Seizure Robots (戦闘ロボットシージャー Sentou Robotto Shījā) is a Japanese TV show that the Simpsons saw while vacationing in Japan.
Bart noticed the show on TV and asked, "Isn't that show supposed to cause seizures?" Immediately afterwards, his pupils dilated and he was babbling and rolling on the floor, having a seizure. Lisa and Marge quickly followed. Then Homer entered the room and didn't know what was up with everyone rolling on the floor and babbling incoherently, but he figured that he would go along with it, so he started rolling and babbling on purpose. When a commercial came on, everyone's seizures stopped. When the show resumed, so did the seizures, this time also affecting Homer.
The show seems to be about giant robots battling each other. The flashes from their weapons cause the seizures.
