The Samsonadzes: Republic of Georgia Version of The Simpsons

The Samsonadzes, An Animated Knockoff of The Simpsons Made in the Republic of Georgia.

In 2009, Shalva Ramishvili (talk show host and the well-known co-founder of a Tbilisi-based private TV station), created and first aired The Samsonadzes in Georgia. The animated sitcom was a delightfully low-rent knockoff of The Simpsons and while it featured a cartoon family that is visually very similar to the U.S. series, their version is decidedly more political, consistently poking fun of the Russians.


Simpsons: Homer vs. Lisa and the 8th Commandment

The episode marks the debut of Troy McClure who was voiced by Phil Hartman and was partially based on B movie actors Troy Donahue and Doug McClure, as well as Hartman himself.

Her suspicions are confirmed by Reverend Lovejoy and she protests by no longer watching television. Meanwhile, Homer invites his friends over to watch a boxing match, but Lisa's protest gets to him. He decides not to watch the fight and cuts the cable.

The episode was written by freelance writer Steve Pepoon and directed by Rich Moore. It is based on the Eighth Commandment ("thou shalt not steal"), which is one of the Ten Commandments.

The character Drederick Tatum, one of the boxers in the boxing match Homer and his friends watch, also makes his first appearance on the show in this episode.
