The Good, the Bart, and the Loki is a Marvel themed special The Simpsons short. It was released on Disney+ on July 7, 2021.

Synopsis[edit]

"Loki has been banished from Asgard and finds himself in Springfield, where he teams up with Bart Simpson."


Plot[edit]

On the Bifröst, the rainbow bridge outside of Asgard, Odin sentences Loki to banishment on Earth. When Loki asks where he will be going to, Odin tells Loki that he will be sent to Springfield, to Loki's horror. Loki is then kicked off the bridge by Odin and he falls to Springfield, landing next to Bart's treehouse. Bart hears the noise and asks Loki if he can help him. Loki then asks Bart if he knows what it's like to have a distant, abusive father and a blond-haired, perfect sibling. Bart then tells Loki that he has just the family for him.

Loki has dinner with the Simpson family when Homer asks him if he can turn one pork chop into two. Loki does this and Homer begins to worship him. Lisa then says that the world doesn't need more pork chops, so Bart tells Loki to get rid of Lisa. Loki sends Lisa to Asgard, where she ends up in the same room as Fenris Wolf and Mjolnir, Thor's hammer. Lisa accidentally knocks Mjolnir off the wall and decides to put it back. However, when she touches the hammer, she gains the power of Thor. Lisa then flies back to Springfield to confront Loki.

When Lisa arrived back in Springfield, she gathered the Springfield Avengers together. However, she quickly realizes that they are useless and fights Loki herself. Loki begins to protest, in Bart's voice, as Loki had changed his and Bart's appearances around. Lisa then throws the fake Loki off into the distance as everyone cheers. That night, Loki changes back into himself whilst in bed. Homer then walks into the room and kisses Loki good night and asks him to turn Ned Flanders into pork chops. Loki then goes to sleep, happy that he has a functional family.

The credits then start, with a picture of Comic Book Guy, as Thanos, activating The Blip on the Springfield Avengers. The next picture has Homer trying to lift up Mjolnir, unsuccessfully. The first mid-credits scene then starts, where Barney is surprised that Moe gave the barflies drinks on the house. Loki then reveals himself to be Moe in disguise, and tells the barflies that they are killing themselves with beer, and that the bottles are ending up in the ocean and killing the planet. Barney says that it's still worth it.

The next credits picture has Santa's Little Helper as Rocket Raccoon, Marge as Gamora, Homer as Drax the Destroyer, and Bart's treehouse as Groot. The picture after that has Barney hanging up his wet Iron Man suit on a clothesline. The final picture has Maggie watching a Kirk and Luann as Vision and Wanda Maximoff on TV. Another credits scene then starts, where Ralph, as the Hulk, tells Loki that he isn't nice. Ralph then picks up Loki and smashes him around.

The final credits scene has Loki being brought before Ravonna Renslayer. Renslayer lists all the crimes that Loki has committed, including tampering with the sacred timeline. As Renslayer goes on, Loki gets more and more bored.

Production[edit]

The Good, the Bart, and the Loki was announced on June 30, 2021.[1] Tom Hiddleston, the actor for Loki in the Marvel Cinematic Universe was also confirmed to be voicing Loki in the short.[2]

The short was started on April 2, 2021, with the first board reel being finished a week later. Animation for the short started at the beginning of May.[3] The Lisa vs. Loki fight was originally intended to take place at Springfield Elementary School. It was later changed to the Simpsons' front lawn.[4]

The music in the short was mostly from the Marvel films. President of Marvel Studios Kevin Feige allowed the producers of The Simpsons to use the Avengers music.[5]

Lisa becoming Thor was inspired by the news that Jane Foster would become Thor in Thor: Love and Thunder. The final scene of the short, taking place at the Time Variance Authority, was inspired by the first episode of Loki, which aired on June 9, 2021, less than a month before the short was released. The Simpsons executive producer James L. Brooks decided that they had to do something based on Loki and they finished the scene in a week.[6]
