Egg and Spoon

1990-1996

Logo: In a purple room, with an egg on a stand on top of a table full of Homer Simpson logos, a spoon taps on the egg, which gains the face of Homer (in his 1989-present appearance) in a scary expression, complete with green hair, horns, a nose ring, and a giant mouth with fangs. The Homer egg makes a weird noise resembling a low pitched roar, which causes the spoon, which turns into Bart (also in his 1989-present appearance) with chicken features, to start squawking in fear, then his runs off. The Homer egg then looks at us, then turns towards us as he swallows the screen and as we see the Homer Simpson logo imprinted on his uvula (the hanging ball thing in the back of your throat), he makes the low pitched noise again.

SFX: Early CGI animation. This was done by Edward Bakst.

Music/Sound: A weird brass theme when the spoon is tapping the egg, then a horror theme starting when the egg becomes Homer. Low pitched grunts/roars from the Homer egg (as well as chuckling when he starts to swallow the screen) and squawking from the Bart chicken spoon are also heard.
