Cheech and Chong Star in Pot-Packed Episode of The Simpsons

A new and hilarious episode of The Simpsons stars an animated version of stoner icons Cheech and Chong, and is loaded with more reefer references than … well … a Cheech and Chong album.

Homer is shocked to find that Bart and Lisa have never heard of Cheech and Chong (“I’ve failed as a parent. I swore the day my son was born he would appreciate stoner comedy!”) and brings the family to see the pair perform live at the local Clamphitheater (don’t ask … just watch the episode).

The stoney duo, who apparently started their careers as weathermen in the Simpsons’ hometown of Springfield before becoming comedy legends, break up when Chong tires of their classic bits. Homer becomes the new Chong and the laughs and pot jokes go on for 20 minutes—and Mr. Burns gets high!

Season 22 Episode 16 – A Midsummer’s Nice Dream

Watch the episode above or here. If that doesn’t work, try it here or watch it in the US on Hulu.

Marijuana culture has seemingly become a favorite target of Simpsons writers. In another episode from 2002, Homer becomes a medical marijuana patient, and many other episodes poke fun at potheads with token toker Otto the bus driver. Remember Chief Wiggum singing Bob Marley’s “Jamming”?

Tommy Chong recently appeared at two LIVE fundraisers for former CC editor Dana Larsen’s BC NDP leadership campaign. Watch video of the fundraisers here and here.
