Season 7 of “The Simpsons”, which aired in 1995-1996, featured the episode “Marge Be Not Proud”, which heavily spoofed video games.  The game Bart so desperately wanted, “Bonestorm”, was a Mortal Kombat gag.  “TELL YOUR FOLKS, ‘BUY ME BONESTORM, OR GO TO HELL!!!!'”

Amongst the other video games popular at the time of Bonestorm’s release:

Lee Carvallo Putting Challenge

Lee Carvallo's Putting Challenge

“Lee Carvallo’s Putting Challenge” also came with a free scoring pencil and the ability to hit a drive off the green four feet from the pin.

Robot Stampede

Robot Stampede

What can one surmise “Robot Stampede” is all about?  Are there indeed robots stampeding?  And if so, why?  What could have spooked those emotionless boxes of metal to the point of running en masse in terror.  And who knew that robots herded??

Celebrity Tutopsy

Celebrity... Tutopsy?

“Celebrity Autopsy” (typo’d as ‘Tutopsy’) provides quite the level of intrigue.  ‘What celebrity’s innards am I holding right now?  ‘This celebrity died of excessive alcohol poisoning.  WAIT!  LINDSAY LOHAN!!’

Sim Reich

Sim Reich

Build your own fascist regime from the ground up!  Take over the world and rid it of your enemies!  “SimReich!”

Electronic Biathlon

Electronic Biathlon

“Electric Biathlon,” the true digital Olympic event.  I have no idea what either of these co-events could possibly be.

Angus Podgorny's Caper Toss

Angus Podgorny's Caper Toss

Now we’re talking ACTION!  Angus Podgorny, great Scot, takes on his first love:  THE CAPER TOSS!

Yes, that Angus Podgorny, from Monty Python's Flying Circus.

Mr. Podgorny, also known for his tennis exploits, proves how his athleticism trumps even his majestic beard.

Canasta Master

Canasta Master

“Canasta Master” proves that card games are better when you don’t physically handle any cards.

A Streetcar Named DEATH

A Streetcar Named DEATH

Tennessee Williams’ first and only foray into the video game industry was “A Streetcar Named Death”.  Marlon Brando once again lends his iconic voice as the irreplaceable Stanley Kowalski who drives the Streetcar for vengeance towards the games villain, Blanche DuBois, Stella’s psychotic and power-hungry, gold-digging sister.  “STELLA!  HEY STELLA!  I GOT HER!”

Swim Meet & Save Hitler's Brain

Swim Meet & Save Hitler's Brain

“Swim Meet” is the best way to get those thumbs in tip-top, swimming shape!  Exercise all the muscles you didn’t know you had in your opposables!

“Save Hitler’s Brain” is the game all kids want!  From the creator of “SimReich”, Will White, comes the harrowing tale of a reincarnated Joseph Goebbels, hellbent on reestablishing the power of Hitler’s Third Reich.  In order to complete such a task, he must first use an array of new-age weapons and gadgetry to SAVE HITLER’S BRAIN!  Once the brain is captured, the ultimate Hitler-Bot will be unleashed on the evils of Europe that have swirled since 1945.

    Capertoss did exist, I believe it was apart of World Games from Epyx.

    Really? Definitely worth checking out, then. Hopefully Angus Podgorny was involved somehow.

    Stumbled on this searching for angus podgorney for another python tribute, the page is a goldmine! Never caught the ‘other games’ in the cabinet, and they are one of the **Best Eastereggs Ever** from the Simpsons crew. My previous favorite collection were videogames in the background of the Noiseland and other arcades, and my fave machine the one where a small rock is assaulted by large flying triangles… http://simpsonswiki.net/wiki/Triangle_Wars
