[Daily article] October 1: A Streetcar Named Marge

“A Streetcar Named Marge” is the second episode of The Simpsons’ fourth
season. It first aired on the Fox network in the United States on
October 1, 1992. In the episode, Marge wins the role of Blanche DuBois
in a musical version of Tennessee Williams’ play A Streetcar Named
Desire. Homer offers little support for his wife’s acting pursuits, and
Marge begins to see parallels between him and Stanley Kowalski, the
play’s boorish lead male character. The episode contains a subplot in
which Maggie attempts to retrieve her pacifier from a strict daycare
owner. Jeff Martin wrote the episode, and Rich Moore served as director.
Jon Lovitz made his fourth guest appearance on The Simpsons, this time
as musical director Llewellyn Sinclair, as well as Llewellyn’s sister,
who runs the daycare. The episode generated controversy with an
unflattering original song about New Orleans; one newspaper published
the lyrics before the episode aired, and the president of Fox
Broadcasting issued a public apology. The episode was well received by
many fans, and show creator Matt Groening has named it one of his
favorite episodes.
