"Kamp Krusty" is the first episode of the fourth season of the American animated television series The Simpsons. It originally aired on the Fox network in the United States on September 24, 1992.[2] During summer vacation, the children of Springfield attend Kamp Krusty, a summer camp named after Krusty the Clown. The camp is extremely unpleasant, leading to the campers rebelling against the camp director. Meanwhile, with the kids away, Homer and Marge's relationship improves, with the former losing much of his excess weight.[3]

After he saw the completed episode, James L. Brooks called the writers and suggested that the "Kamp Krusty" script be used as a plotline for a film. However, the episode ran very short, and to make it barely fit the minimum time the Kamp Krusty song had to be lengthened by a number of verses. The episode was also chosen to be the first episode of the season, further complicating matters. As Jean told Brooks, "First of all, if we make it into the movie then we don't have a premiere, and second, if we can't make 18 minutes out of this episode how are we supposed to make 80?"[6]

Along with the following episode "A Streetcar Named Marge", "Kamp Krusty" was a holdover from the previous season's production run. It was the final episode to be produced in this run and so the last animated at Klasky Csupo, before the show's producers Gracie Films moved its domestic production to Film Roman.[4][7]

Kamp Krusty is the first episode of Season 4. It was originally going to be the Season 3 finale, but was replaced by "Brother, Can You Spare Two Dimes?" as the third season finale due to broadcast order.

The fourth season of the American animated television series The Simpsons originally aired on the Fox network between September 24, 1992, and May 13, 1993, beginning with "Kamp Krusty". The showrunners for the fourth production season were Al Jean and Mike Reiss, with the season being produced by Gracie Films and 20th Century Fox Television. [1] The aired season contained two episodes which were hold-over episodes from season three, which Jean and Reiss also ran. Following the end of the production of the season, Jean, Reiss and most of the original writing staff left the show. The season was nominated for two Primetime Emmy Awards and Dan Castellaneta would win one for his performance as Homer in "Mr. Plow". The fourth season was released on DVD in Region 1 on June 15, 2004, Region 2 on August 2, 2004, and in Region 4 on August 25, 2004.

The season was executive produced by Al Jean and Mike Reiss, who had also run the previous season. Several of the show's original writers who had been with the show since the first season left following the completion of the season's production run. "Cape Feare", which was the final episode to be produced by the "original team",[2] aired during season five as a holdover.[2] Jay Kogen, Wallace Wolodarsky and Jeff Martin wrote their final episodes for the season four production run. David M. Stern and Jon Vitti also left but returned to write episodes for later seasons. Reiss and Jean left to produce their own series, The Critic, but later returned to produce several more The Simpsons episodes, and Jean again became the showrunner starting with season thirteen.[3] Rich Moore, one of the show's original directors, also left to work on The Critic,[3] but returned years later to assist with animation on The Simpsons Movie.[4] George Meyer and John Swartzwelder stayed on, while Conan O'Brien, Frank Mula and future show runners Bill Oakley and Josh Weinstein received their first writing credits. One-time writers for the season include Adam I. Lapidus and the team of Gary Apple and Michael Carrington, although Carrington later returned to voice characters in "Simpson Tide" and "Million Dollar Abie".[5]

"A Streetcar Named Marge" and "Kamp Krusty" were holdovers from the previous season and so were the last of the Klasky Csupo produced episodes to air.[11] Brooks suggested that the script for "Kamp Krusty" be expanded and produced as a feature-length theatrically released film. However, the episode ran very short, barely reaching the minimum length allowed, with the episode's musical number having to be lengthened by a number of verses. The episode had also been selected to be the season's premiere. As Jean told Brooks, "First of all, if we make it into the movie then we don't have a premiere, and second if we can't make 18 minutes out of this episode how are we supposed to make 80?"[13]

1993 marked the first year that the producers of The Simpsons did not submit episodes for the "Primetime Emmy Award for Outstanding Animated Program (for Programming Less Than One Hour)".[15] Prior to this season, the series had only been allowed to compete in the animation category, but in early 1993 the rules were changed so that animated television shows would be able to submit nominations in the "Outstanding Comedy Series" category.[16] The producers submitted "A Streetcar Named Marge" and "Mr. Plow" but the Emmy voters were hesitant to pit cartoons against live action programs, and The Simpsons did not receive a nomination.[15] Several critics saw the show's failure to gain a nomination as one of the biggest snubs of that year.[17][18][19] Dan Castellaneta was awarded an Emmy for "Outstanding Voice-Over Performance".[20] "Treehouse of Horror III" was nominated for Emmys for "Outstanding Individual Achievement in Music Composition for a Series (Dramatic Underscore)" (Alf Clausen) and "Outstanding Individual Achievement in Sound Mixing for a Comedy Series or a Special".[20]

The series won several other awards this season, including an Annie Award for "Best Animated Television Program",[21] a Genesis Award for "Best Television Prime Time Animated Series"[22] for the episode "Whacking Day"[23] and a Saturn Award for "Best Television Series".[24]

The DVD boxset for season four was released by 20th Century Fox in the United States and Canada on June 15, 2004, eleven years after it had completed broadcast on television. As well as every episode from the season, the DVD release features bonus material including deleted scenes, Animatics, and commentaries for every episode. The menus are a different format than the previous seasons.[47]

Krusty the Clown is one of The Simpsons' most recognizable faces, and he has arguably had a bigger impact on the show than any other supporting character. Krusty made his debut when The Simpsons started off as a series of shorts on The Tracey Ullman Show. The famous clown is one of The Simpsons' most frequently used characters and has been featured in some of the show's best episodes, including The Simpsons season 4, episode 1, "Kamp Krusty," and season 5, episode 12, "Bart Gets Famous."

Krusty starred in season 3's "Like Father, Like Clown," an episode that radically changed the way that The Simpsons writers approached the show. In his book "Springfield Confidential," long-time Simpsons writer Mike Reiss revealed that Krusty's seminal episode made the creative team realize that The Simpsons didn't always need to be about the Simpson family. Before "Like Father, Like Clown," most episode titles of The Simpsons included either Homer, Bart, or Lisa's name. Even those episodes that were seemingly about peripheral characters still made the Simpson family the stars of the show, including "Krusty Gets Busted," where Bart is the main character rather than the titular clown as the title suggested.

"Like Father, Like Clown" led the way for more supporting Simpsons characters to get their own episodes. Mr. Burns, Ned Flanders, and Moe Szyslak are just some Springfieldians whose personalities became more developed and nuanced thanks to episodes that were dedicated to them. Yet although these types of episodes mark a welcome change from the usual Simpson family antics, they are not always successful. The Simpsons season 9, episode 12, "The Principal and The Pauper" tried to reinvent Principal Skinner, but the reveal that he wasn't the real Seymour Skinner was not well received, proving that it is not always easy to make supporting characters the focus of The Simpsons.

"Kamp Krusty" is the first episode of season 4 of The Simpsons and the sixtieth episode overall. It originally aired on September 24, 1992. The episode was written by David M. Stern and directed by Mark Kirkland.

Fan reaction was mixed-to-positive. Reviews submitted to label the episode as "solid" with an "interesting plot" and that it was "a great way to start out Season 4." However, many fans agreed that the episode was overshadowed by the rest of the fourth season, including episodes such as "A Streetcar Named Marge" and "Last Exit to Springfield", and subsequently deemed it as "forgettable."[5]

Sure, this is technically not an episode of the show. However, not only is The Simpsons Movie available to stream on Disney+, it's great. While it would have been amazing to get a Simpsons movie sooner than 18 seasons in--or a sequel in the years that followed--this remains a highlight of the franchise. Plus, it gave us the greatness that is Spider-Pig. -- Chris E. Hayner 041b061a72
