Simpson’s Goofs on LOTR

Roheryn writes: Did you catch this past Sunday’s new episode of The Simpsons? There was a scene towards the end in which Lisa and Bart are defending a rather large castle they have built from cardboard shipping boxes from a besieging army of UPS-type delivery men and vans. The siege is very much based on scenes from LOTR, complete with a Nazgul-on-Fell-Beast type aerial attacker. The real kicker is that they used the actual music and choral vocals from ROTK’s Siege of Gondor scene, up to and including the triumphant Ride of the Rohirrim music! Great fun — but I was disappointed to see that — even after careful scrutiny with the pause button — there did not appear to be any credit given at the end to Howard Shore or even New Line. Orcses!!!
