The Adventures of...

Peeled back the page on my Simpsons 2016 Year-In-A-Box desk calendar this morning and found this:
The Simpsons theme song singalong to "The Adventures of Ned Flanders"! This really made my morning. Being a Simpsons fan from the start I have a fondness for this 30 second Flanders short. It was just so weird and out of place that it has always stuck with me as an early Simpsons highlight.
Originally this aired on April 15, 1993 at the end of the Simpsons episode "The Front" (19th episode of season 4) and according to legend this was created after the writers tried "Every trick in the book" to extend the episode. They wanted to keep these shorts going, but sadly just couldn't find the time. Here it is in all it's 33 second glory!
