Um...why?  That's what parents are supposed to do with their kids.

Actual episode: There's no Disgrace Like Home, though I believe they did go to a(nother) family therapist once in the shorts.

Yup. The short was called "Family Therapy". I haven't seen it myself, but I know that "There's no Disgrace Like Home" references it with the "let's go for a big round of frosty chocolate milkshakes!" line.

And DJ... have you got some kind of problem with parents telling their kids to do things?

Now now people, maybe DJ has had some childhood trauma in which his parents told him to clean his room and not watch TV.  Nine children out of ten suffer from this.  It's unfortunately a common situation.

No it not that, I know that what parents always do to their kids to clean up, but I don't like seein them being mad to their kids, I just like see family spent time together beside makin kids work so hard. And of course "There's no Disgrace Like Home" is a good episode.

That's what happens when people get desperate, resorting to unwanted posts and spam. Sad really...

Of the few Ullman short episodes I've seen (Can't seem to find these things anywhere!), my favorite is Skateboarding.Lots'a 80's nostalgia.

Well it tough to look for those short episodes, but some of them could be found at the best of The Simpson vol. 1-12 on VHS. And I think their one website you can download an episode to watch, but I can't remember what the name of it because it a long time ago.
