A to Z is a Butterfinger BB's commercial featuring Homer, Lisa, Bart and Maggie.


Bart and Lisa tease Homer using Butterfinger BBs while reading a book to Maggie. After they leave, Maggie puts her pacifier on Homer's mouth, learning and teaching Homer a lesson. While she happily reads a book, she looks up, while Homer sucks Maggie's pacifier (thus making it his pacifier).


  • It is an opposite situation to The Big Surprise,where Maggie pulls her pacifier from Homer's mouth.In this commercial,Maggie does the opposite when she puts her pacifier in Homer's mouth,which also runs on some cough gag.
  • Bart's lines may help Homer because:
    Homer: A, B...BB?
      Bart: Mmm.
      Homer: BB?
      [Lisa eats the Butterfinger BB.]
      Homer: C... BBB?
      [Cut to Butterfinger BB's sequence.]
      Male announcer: Peanut buttery Butterfinger BB's. Is there any snack as crispity? No, there isn't!
      Homer: J... K... L... Mmmm...
      Bart: N, O.
      Homer: P, Q, R, S, T, U, V, W, X, Y, you little!
      Bart (voiceover): Butterfinger BB's!
      Announcer: From Nestle.
      Bart: Z ya later, Home boy.
      [Maggie takes her pacifier out of her mouth and puts her pacifier in Homer's mouth.]
  1. Bart says: N, O,but says "see" incorrectly,where "s" being replaced with "z".
  2. Homer says "Mmmm..." in place of M.
  3. While Homer said "Y , you little", this can form into "Why you little!" line, but "Z" is on letter s' place on "see". Similar to Otto man forms into Ottoman.
  • It is similar to Good vs. Evil Bart, where Good Bart wants to share them, One Less Sister where Bart gets angry at Lisa for trying to take some of his Butterfinger BBs, (and Maggie grabs one while Bart says "Nobody better lay a finger on my Butterfinger BB's") and Philosophy, where Martin Prince tells Bart to share his Butterfinger BB's with him.
