The Simpsons are back. In POG form.

Not sure if I still had my POG Maker, I took to searching the internets for one. My first dungeon to explore? eBay. And what did I find on eBay?

The Simpsons. Fucking. POGs.

Now this isn’t the first time I’ve become acquainted with my friends, the Simpsons POGs. Years ago, back during the magical 90s, I was walking around a pretty huge flea market, not sure where, maybe the Jersey Shore? Anyway, I was walking around and lo and behold I saw them. I shat myself.

I only took home nine of them, I think it was because the woman at the table was selling them for like a buck or two each, which was fucking nuts, even considering the wildly popular POG cartoon at the time, even though there was only one episode, and I can’t find shit about it online, and I’m still waiting for there to be a second episode.

So for like 15 years I look at these 9 POGs and wondered, will they ever be united with their family of 50? Well, today, June 15th 2008, their dream came true: I won the complete set on eBay. No longer will I lay awake at night wondering, praying, wishing that I someday will own all fifty Simpsons POGs. Tonight, I sleep the sleep of heavily sedated mental patients.

    There was a POG cartoon………
    Jesus.
    Next you’ll be telling me theres a show about giant robots who talk, or anthropomorphic amphibians who make witty remarks about pizza and use slang from the early 90’s.
    Ha, riiight…

    Funny how I posted about POGs a while back not understanding the trend and it turns out lots of people still have POG collections. Congrats on The Simpson’s POGs.

    Josh: That’s just silly! Next you’re going to claim that these turtles had an anthropomorphic mutant rat as a sensei…pfft…crazy.

    I just found this blog, and I’m glad I did.

    I just posted on POGs today myself. I, too had no idea that there was a POG cartoon, and usually on the ball with such things.

    And you have officially joined the Complete Collection Club: A quick look-see in my closet assured myself that I indeed have all 50. I got them as an Easter gift some many years ago. It’s kind of sad that they only have updates til Season 4 with Pepi, since they were produced in 1994. A majority of them are Radiocative Man related!

    The Simpsons Geek strikes again: That pic you have above is from “Cape Feare.”
