It Came from the '70s is a Simpsons Comics story first printed in Simpsons Comics #175.


Homer has bought a giant magnet from the distressed auto wreckers, because he thought Marge could turn it on. As Homer goes home from work, he thinks that the magnet will pull the car home. However, it appears that the magnet has pulled all the cars back to the Simpson family, which causing a giant crash. Homer is accused of killing Disco Stu, who does not want to live anymore because all his beta tapes have been erased by the magnet. Since Disco Stu does not have a DVD player, Homer is forced to tell him the stories of a few television episodes. The first TV series he talks about is about puppets who own a theater. Krusty The Bear opens the show, but gets laughed offstage by two old folks. El Barto the Great prepares for something educational and wants to set off fireworks onstage, but when Lisa the Frog finds out, she lets Old MacDonald perform a musical number instead. The two old seniors mock the song, so Krusty asks them to come up onstage if they want to say something. They come up onto the stage and prepare to fight with Krusty, but he escapes. He runs behind the stage and tips over the flaming hoop, which makes the boxes of gunpowder explode and the whole theater is destroyed.

Disco Stu wants Homer to switch the channel and say something heartwarming, and he starts to tell a story about a settler family who has moved to the United States and has begun to build their own house when they are visited by Father Flanders, who gives the family his house. The family's children start school, but they find out they do not have a valued education, and the family's father cannot find a job and is forced to sell his hair for food and beer. The family's daughter wants to look for jobs, but the parents won't let her so she is forced to stay in school, but the next day the teacher quits after falling in love with Oscar Wilde, so the schools are forced to close. The family's daughter becomes the school's new teacher and finds out that the books are out of date, so she tries to teach children that men and women are equal. The rumor that women are equal begins to spread and the family's mother gets a new job as a blacksmith and the boy in the family, Bart, gets a seeing dog and begins to see immediately. The father is happy that things are going better for his family. Homer asks if he is finished but Disco Stu says he wants to hear three stories.

A man who works as a detective sits in his trailer when it gets trailed by a repo man, but his father passes by, asleep at the wheel in a truck which breaks down the connection between the trailer and the repo man. The truck crashes into Shotz Beer so the father must move in with his son, because it is his home. They are visited by a rich old man and start to work for him. He wants to engage an employee who he believes is gambling with the company funds in an illegal poker tour. They come to the poker house, but the entrance is guarded. The father begins to talk to the guard so that his son can sneak in. He walks in and discovers that they are playing poker. When it is revealed that one guest has less money, he is guilty. They discover the detective but he says he wants to play poker, and does so. Just then the bartender comes and recognizes him, so he gets kicked out.

They are rewarded by the rich man and he says that he lied; he just wants to see a brutal beating. The father asks him why he didn't sell his car if he needs money, so he gets thrown out of the car. The father begins to hitchhike. Disco Stu says that he is satisfied and Roy Snyder says that Homer must now tell stories to Dr. Hibbert, Edna Krabappel and Comic Book Guy, much to his annoyance.
