Here's another amusingly damaging moralistic edit to the Simpsons episodes showing on Channel 4: the end of The Catridge Family episode, otherwise known as the one where Homer buys a gun, has the ending of Marge about to throw the gun away into the bin but instead getting excited by her own reflection in the bin lid and pocketing the gun herself, and thereby amusingly suggesting that she is susceptible to temptation herself, completely removed. Instead there is a jarring cut from her opening the lid of the bin to suddenly unmotivatedly sashaying out to the Avengers theme tune!
If I recall correctly, this episode was left out of the inital Sky One showing of Season 9 in the wake of Dunblane, and was sold as an unseen episode on the "Too Hot for TV" vhs.

My dad loves Homer's reponse to being caught out hoarding the supposedly destroyed gun "I swear to you, I'd never thought you'd find out!"

Then came an episode of The Simpsons titled "The Great Phatsby," a hip-hop spoof of the famous novel The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald.

Just thinking of all the episode ideas they have had to come up with over the past 20 years of grinding this show into the dirt fills me with existential dread.

I might be off in my memory of “Simpsons World”, but weren’t the 4:3 versions unrestored?

Yes. Knowing Disney and how long it took them to get to this though, I wouldn’t necessarily expect them to be unrestored this time around. I also wouldn’t expect the commentary tracks any time soon, although it would be an incredibly pleasant surprise if they turned up eventually.

The timing of this with HBOMax launching next week can't be much of a coincidence though
