List of scenes cut from The Simpsons shorts

Wikisimpsons - The Simpsons Wiki


This is a list of scenes cut from The Simpsons shorts, with information supplied by The Simpsons Archive and the titles supplied by Simpsons World The Ultimate Episode Guide: Seasons 1-20.

In a listing, first there will be the short's title and production code. Underneath, information about the scene cut, and in some listings, there is a quote, from the cut scene.

Season 1[edit]

No cut scenes given, but 11 seconds of the short are cut in syndication airings. More specifically, the part after Homer says "We may be the best parents in the world."

No cut scenes given, but 5 seconds of the short are cut in syndication airings.

No information given.

Act One, which consists of Bart and Lisa Watching Television while Maggie electrocutes herself by sticking a fork into an electrical socket, is cut in syndication airings. It was cut because children watching the episode of The Tracey Ullman Show in which this short was included could have copied Maggie's actions in Act One, and several children watching could have ended up with serious injuries, or could have died. If the scene were to have been left in, it is likely that parents would have prevented this from happening, however.

18 seconds of the short are cut in syndication. The cut lines and scenes are listed below, and are both in Act One.

"Bart: How long are you going to keep sucking on that stupid pacifier?
Lisa: What a little baby you are.
"
―In act 1.

When Maggie's pacifier is pulled out of her mouth in act one, she proceeds to fall forward and walk off. She then walks down a hall, falls by a mouse hole, and walks off-screen. The scene shifts to her entering her bedroom, where she falls and picks herself up again to open a drawer full of pacifiers.

22 seconds of the short are cut in syndication. The scene cut is listed below:
Marge watches Homer disappointedly after he burps, and then Maggie burps, leaving Marge to watch the rest of the family, stunned.

10 seconds of the short are cut in syndication. The line cut is listed below:

"TV: On tonight's news: Bus plunge kills forty-three. Freak roller coaster accident decapitates a family of five. And a sneak preview of today's exciting bikini beachwear. But first this important message."
―In act four.

Season 2[edit]

22 seconds of the short are cut in syndication. The entire second act is cut in syndication, where, they continue making faces, and Marge returns to tell them to knock it off. When she leaves, Bart and Lisa try to imitate her scowl, though their attempts are beaten by Maggie's imitation ("Look at this!").

14 seconds of the short are cut in syndication. Again, the entire second act is cut in syndication.
