Super Safi’s Monday Morning Musings 31 – I Want to Go to Mt. Splashmore

Morning Musically-Minded, Medically-Minded, Masticators!

(Today’s post is sponsored by the letter “M”)

 

Over the past 600+ episodes, The Simpsons has taken us on an amazing journey involving music, science, and food to name a few concepts.

And what better way to start your week, then by discussing some of these concepts Monday morning?

So let’s get started this week by talking about a jingle from the Simpsons, I Want to Go to Mt. Springfield.

 

In the thirty first episode of The Simpsons, Brush with Greatness (Season 02, Episode 18), after Bart and Lisa watch Krusty perform his show at the Mt. Splashmore water park (including sing a catchy jingle), they ask Homer if they can go there. Homer eventually gets annoyed, and reluctantly agrees to take them there. But misfortune strikes when Homer get’s stuck in the H2WHOA ride.

But have you ever wondered what song Krusty and the kids were ‘krooning’ along to that attracted Bart and Lisa to the waterpark?

 

Kroon Along With Krusty – I Want to Go to Mt. Splashmore

Krusty: “Okay, kids, it’s time to…
Kids: “KROON ALONG WITH KRUSTY! Yea!
[Music starts with drum and bass]
Krusty and Kids: “I want to go to Mt. Splashmore!
Take me, take me, take me, take me now!
Now! Now! Now! Now! Now!
Mt. Splashmore,
Take me there right now!

The shameless promotion worked on Bart and Lisa and they subsequently pestered Homer in a classic scene from The Simpsons:

Bart/Lisa: “Will you take us to Mt. Splashmore?
Homer: “No.
Bart/Lisa: “Will you take us to Mt. Splashmore?
Homer: “No.
Bart/Lisa: “Will you take us to Mt. Splashmore?
Homer: “No!
Bart/Lisa: “Will you take us to Mt. Splashmore?
Homer: “No!
Bart/Lisa: “Will you take us to Mt. Splashmore?
Homer: “No!
Bart/Lisa: “Will you take us to Mt. Splashmore?
Homer: “No!
Bart/Lisa: “Will you take us to Mt. Splashmore?
Homer: “No!
Bart/Lisa: “Will you take us to Mt. Splashmore?
Homer: “No!
Bart/Lisa: “Will you take us to Mt. Splashmore?
Homer: “No!
Bart/Lisa: “Will you take us to Mt. Splashmore?
Homer: “No.
Bart/Lisa: “Will you take us to Mt. Splashmore?
Homer: “No.
Bart/Lisa: “Will you take us to Mt. Splashmore?
Homer: “NO!
Bart/Lisa: “Will you take us to Mt. Splashmore?
Homer: “No! No! No! NOOO! IF I TAKE YOU, WILL YOU TWO SHUT UP AND QUIT BUGGING ME?!
Bart: “Yeah!
Lisa: “Of course.
Bart: “Well?
Bart/Lisa: “Will you take us to Mt. Splashmore?
Homer: “YES!
Bart/Lisa: “Thanks Dad!

  1. We could use an H2Whoa at Mt. Splashmore in TSTO …. goes swell in Krustyland (even though EA bailed on Krustyland, just like they bailed Springfield Heights, etc) …. ’cause having Homer Simpson in a Visual Character Task (getting stuck inside H2Whoa) would be hilarious! πŸ˜‚

    Commercial jingles through the years –

    Alka-Seltzer “Plop, Plop, Fizz, Fizz”

    Coca-Cola “I’d Like To Teach The World To Sing”

    Dr. Pepper “I’m a Pepper!”

    I will stop right there, as obviously I’ve been brainwashed by commercials for too many decades! πŸ˜‰πŸ‘πŸ»

        I know there’s got to be more jingles from commercials to remember (a cereal brand, a restaurant, a theme park) but I’m too busy thinking how fun it would be to have an H2WHOA in the Game App! πŸ‘πŸ»

        • Would that restaurant include a Barry manilow song? And don’t even start with all of those toys around Christmas time.

            • Actually I was referring to “you deserve a break today”.

              But on further research, he has quite the impressive resume. Including “I am stuck on band-aid”, “like a good neighbor…”, there are also jingles for Pepsi, stridex, KFC and others.

              Talk about ear worms.

              • Yeah…Barry made almost as much money, and maybe more, from his commercial residuals, as he did from his records. I actually liked a few of his songs…but can’t stand to watch him perform. The worst dancer ever…

              • This is true , Manilow could retire just on his song writing royalties ….. we’ve all grown up on jingles that get stuck in back of our conscience forever (“you deserve a break today” – McDonald’s) πŸ”πŸŸπŸ₯€

  2. Has listening to children beg for something repeatedly ever given you a myocardial rupture?

    And did I miss the part about the myocardial rupture? Are you going to tell us about it?
    Are you?
    Are you?
    Are you?
    Are you?
    Are you?
