A Fun and Very Musical Episode,
31 March 2015 | by lesleyharris30See all my reviews

Walking Big & Tall is a great Simpsons episode with a well written storyline and plenty of very funny scenes. It is quite a musical episode as well and I enjoyed the songs that were featured in it, particularly the one that Bart, Lisa and several other children of Springfield Elementary sing. I also really appreciated the cameo appearance by Pharrell Williams, it was funny and very brief, that's how I prefer guest stars to be unless they are playing a different character, I don't want to see more episodes with singers like Lady Gaga in the main role. Walking Big & Tall is a fun and very enjoyable Simpsons episode.

The proud residents of Springfield are outraged when they learn their town anthem was pinched from a musician.
