"TV Simpsons" is the forty-eighth and final Simpsons short. It first aired on The Tracey Ullman Show on May 14, 1989.


When he wants to watch the bowling game, Homer sends Bart outside to fly a kite, but the kite gets tangled in the antenna and distorts the TV picture. Homer is forced to climb up onto the roof to restore it. After many failed attempts to get the kite out of the antenna, he gets furious, rips the kite to pieces and ends up falling off the roof.

After that scene, the episode concludes with Lisa, Bart and Maggie watching The Itchy & Scratchy Show, laughing.
