The Good, the Bart, and the Loki

The Good, the Bart, and the Loki is a short film in The Simpsons franchise reflecting on Loki's role in the MCU. It was released on July 7, 2021, alongside Journey into Mystery, the fifth episode of Loki.[3] The short was well-received amongst fans, especially those who were disapointed by the show.

Did I think I’d care about Loki + Simpsons crossover? Nah, I only wanted to watch for Tom.

But did I suddenly get all emotional over Loki being adopted into a new family and him immediately being liked by his new father figure??? YEAH

It’s so funny the Simpsons did this.

Putting him on trial for being more popular than the heroes is so on point.

Marvel never expected him to be so popular, and they’re so annoyed that we love him and Tom so much.

The series is our punishment for loving Loki and wanting more content with him.
