Being an avid Simpsons fan and lifelong viewer, it’s hard to find something I’ve missed in an episode. Even something that just flashes across the screen (Maggie used to costs $847.63, which was the average cost for raising a child, but now costs $243.26). Especially in an older episode. I’ve used (wisely) at least a year of my life watching Simpsons episodes. So when Reddit user repocode posted this image, I was in shock. I have seen “Like Father, Like Clown” over 25 times. I’ve written about it. And I’ve read articles about it. But I completely missed this Krusty Star of David.
Unfortunately, I haven’t been able to find this image in other episodes. Even Krusty Brand’s Seal of Approval isn’t in the shape of the Star of David. I assume this was placed specifically to establish Krusty as a Jewish entertainer for this episode. I was hoping it would be a consistent theme throughout the entire show. But still – mind blown. This is like some Stonecutter / Illuminati conspiracy.
