Simpson Sundays: Pickfair, Schtickfair

Mary Pickford and Douglas Fairbanks at Pickfair

Season 7, Episode 15: Bart the Fink

After Bart inadvertently gets Krusty the Clown in trouble with the IRS, the government seizes all of Krusty’s assets, including his fast food restaurants and the sets and props from his TV show. Just when he thinks things can’t get any worse, he returns home to discover that the government is auctioning off all his belongings and family heirlooms. As he walks up to his house, we see that his estate is named Schtickfair, a parody of Pickfair, the legendary home owned by Douglas Fairbanks and Mary Pickford.
