[S1E10] Homer's Night Out
A belly dancer named Princess Kashmir arrives at the party and invites Homer to dance with her onstage. On his way to the bathroom, Bart wanders into the bachelor party and snaps a picture of Homer and Princess Kashmir dancing. Bart brings the photo to school and gives a copy to Milhouse, who promptly gets requests for copies from other students. Soon everyone in Springfield has a copy. Marge sees the picture at her aerobics class and is furious. When Homer arrives home later that day, Marge demands an explanation. Bart inadvertently reveals that the picture is his, angering both his parents. Homer spends the night at Barney's apartment after Marge kicks him out of the house.
[S1E10] Homer's Night Out
The episode was written by Jon Vitti and directed by Rich Moore. Barney's apartment, which Homer spends the night in when he is kicked out by Marge, is partly based on an apartment that Jim Reardon, Moore, and a few other animators of The Simpsons shared in college. One of the strip clubs Homer and Bart visit when they are trying to find Princess Kashmir is based on the Seventh Veil Strip Club in Los Angeles, California. The staff went around Hollywood taking pictures of strip clubs so they could get inspiration for the interior design of the strip club buildings in Springfield. The character designer designed over fifty different international showgirl costumes for the showgirls in the burlesque show sequence. Carl Carlson made his first appearance on The Simpsons in this episode, though he is voiced by Harry Shearer instead of Hank Azaria or Alex Désert who voice him in later appearances.
Homer introduces himself and Bart to Kashmir, preoccupied with getting onstage for her performance. She eventually tells Homer about herself. Just as Homer's about to leave, he accidentally finds himself on stage for the night's feature attraction: dancing by scantily-clad women from all nations. Homer, however, after seeing Bart, manages to make a passionate plea to the audience to treat women with respect. This plea moves the audience. Marge, in the audience, accepts Homer's comments, and the two make up.
