The Butterfinger Group
The Bully

The Butterfinger Group is the first Butterfinger commercial. It originally aired in 1988, the year when The Simpsons shorts were still on the Fox program The Tracey Ullman Show.

Synopsis

Bart and Milhouse argue about the existence of the Butterfinger food group.

Plot

Milhouse asks if he can trade lunches with Bart, but Bart doesn't want to, as he has the four food groups: sandwich group, cow group, jungle group, and the Butterfinger group. Milhouse protests that there isn't a Butterfinger group, but Bart tells him about it. Milhouse is sad because he doesn't have the Butterfinger group.

2011 remake

A remake of the commercial aired in 2011, where Bart gets in trouble for taking the last Butterfinger.

Trivia
