Red face Homer. Flanders. Geo. Sigh.



What does it say when two vehicles I consider noteworthy have been lampooned on The Simpsons?

(Does anyone else remember the EV1 episode? )

EV1 episode?

Do you mean the Electaurus? The one that Homer drove to get a free gift?

Also of interest:

The best was when Mr. Burns goes to Cuba and comments about "so this is the new DeSoto I have been hearing so much about" or something of the like.

Well. on the Simpsons, what wasn't lampooned? It was considered kinda chic for an actor to get to both play and lampoon him/herself.

Then there was the Canyonero:
Quote:
Can you name the truck with four wheel drive,
Smells like a steak, and seats thirty five?
Canyonero! Canyonero!
Well, it goes real slow with the hammer down
It's the country-fried truck endorsed by a clown
Canyonero! Canyonero!
Hey, hey!
Twelve yards long, two lanes wide,
Sixty five tons of American pride!
Canyonero! Canyonero!
Top of the line in utility sports,
Unexplained fires are a matter for the courts!
Canyonero! Canyonero!
She blinds everybody with her super high beams
She's a squirrel-squashin', deer-smackin' drivin' machine
Canyonero! Canyonero! Canyonero!
Whoa, Canyonero! Whoa!

Oh yes, the Electaurus! I tried finding a screen cap, but couldn't. Wasn't the car drawn as the EV1?

Yes! In one episode, Homer is chasing (on foot) Ned & his family trying to escape in their red Metro.

Ned's wife yells: "C'mon Ned! Move this thing!"

Ned: "I can't! It's a Geo!"

Yes, I guess when it's been on the air as long as it has, it makes for a pretty thorough lampooning ability.

My favorite car mention is when they're on the electric car of the future ride down in orlando or something and the car says something like "I don't go very fast, or very far. And if you drive me, people will think you're gay." Just then a group of flambouyant young gentleman robots came on the side and started chanting "one of us."

Sort of. It resembled the GM Ultralite a little bit, and seated 4. I also believe it was white.
