According to the lot of people’s belief that The Simpsons all episodes were not being released in Disny+. One few main events from 1991 are missing, and a lot of people knows why in the chapter named “Stark Raving Dad” featured as a guest star, Michel Jackson.
“Stark Raving Dad” was initially was in Season 3 but not now. Fans identified that the episode is missed in Disney+ though it promised the viewers to release all the events.
It’s not hard to see that the episodes are being missed from the spring. Not only that it was also removed from all DVD box sets, re-runs and all other streaming channels, according to a report by The Wall Street Journal, at the request of The Simpsons’ the producers trust themselves only — executive producers James L. Brooks, Matt Groening and Al Jean.
The producers said that “the only choice to make” in regards to the episode, especially after all the allegations on Jackson. He has faced accusations of child molestation for decades and even attended court due to that in his career.
However, last year the stories are trending once again with the HBO documentary Leaving Neverland. The movie paid attention to two of Jackson’s accusers, who shared the story with the outsider.
The story has led many people to rethink their opinion of Jackson and his legacy and has shaken his iconic status in pop culture. It has also gotten lots of counterblast from Jackson’s supporters. Brooks said that he and the other producers felt that the episode needed to release for the sake of the viewers and fans.
“This was a treasured episode,” Brooks said. “There are a lot of great memories we have wrapped up in that one, and this certainly doesn’t allow them to remain.”
“Stark Raving Dad” followed Homer’s friendship with a person who belongs to the mental ward, who said that he was Michael Jackson. It was a gag because of Jackson’s drastic plastic surgery, and Jackson was in on it at the time.
Two years after the episode aired, Jackson went to court for alleged sexual assault of a minor of the first time. In 1993 he was questioned for his inappropriate “friendship” with a 13-year-old boy. The case was settled out of court.
This missing episode is not Simpsons fans’ only complaint about Disney+. The new streaming episodes are being cropped. They cropped the top and bottom portions of the show, rendering some gags and visual humour nonsensical.
