T.V. Simpsons is the forty-eighth, and last Simpsons short. It originally aired on The Tracey Ullman Show on May 14, 1989, seven months before the first episode in the Simpsons series.
When Bart, Lisa, and Maggie are occupied watching Itchy & Scratchy, Homer sends them outside to fly a kite so he can watch bowling. The kite gets tangled in the TV antenna and distorts the picture. Homer is forced to climb up onto the roof to restore it. As he is tugging and pulling at the kite, he falls off the roof while getting its signal back. The channel lands on Itchy & Scratchy once again and Bart, Lisa, and Maggie continue watching.
