15 Times Krusty The Clown Killed It
Krusty The Clown is the chain-smoking, meat peddling, high-maintenance clown prince of Springfield. Krusty has gone through a lot in his decades-long career on The Simpsons from bankruptcy… to near bankruptcy. Here are 15 times Krusty stole the side-show.
Krusty’s Nicotine Patches
I know several people who use nicotine patches and give off this exact same energy. In this classic moment, Krusty shows just how many patches he can fit on his body at one time, a goal I wish to achieve someday as well.
The Falkland Islands
Since Krusty is away from the show, he decides to play an old re-run so that no one will notice. Unfortunately, like all of us, Krusty is not perfect and he picks a less than ideal show.
Krusty Burger's Olympic Promotion
“Krusty Burger is the official meat flavored sandwich of the 1984 Olympics!”
Krusty announces a Krusty Burger promotion to go along with the event that only costs him $44 million dollars.
The Secret Word
During an episode with an animal wrangler, Krusty is warned not to make any loud noises around the wolf. But “loud” is today’s secret word! AAAHHHHH!
Krusty Eats Krusty-Os
No one loves to advertise more than Krusty. In this clip from a press conference, Krusty attempts to prove his cereal is harmless by eating one. It does not go well.
Send In The Clowns
Who better to sing “Send In The Clowns” than Barbara Streisand? Ok, now who’s better if Barbara Streisand is busy? Krusty the Clown bears his soul in this heartfelt clip, along with Sideshow Mel.
Krusty’s Ventriloquist Dummy
Krusty has a way with words and a way of scaring the hell out of his audience.
“Homie The Clown” is one of the highlights of season 6, with a lot of the fame coming from the Clown College training (not to mention seeing all the Simpsons in Krusty variants). Also good to note that Krustys pupils are “Krustaceans.”
While the entire episode of Kamp Krusty is a classic, one of the best lines comes from when he promises to make it up to the children for their awful experience.
“Get Ready For 2 Weeks at the happiest place on earth, Tijuana!”
Krusty Komedy Klassic
Krusty suffers from the same ailment as the Kardashians: you have to be careful how many “Ks” you chain together.
Krusty’s Stand Up
A real George Carlin type if you ask me. Just like Carlin, Krusty incites real political change, in the form of everyone burning their money. Take that sheeple!

Krusty Bets It All On The Generals
“I Thought The Generals Were Due!”
In a hilarious lack of common sense, Krusty bets all of his franchise money AGAINST the Harlem Globetrotters.
Like Father Like Clown
A heartfelt memory we all have is learning the backstory of our beloved clown. It turns out that Krusty is the son of a Rabbi, and that his teeth were adult-sized even as a young child.
Worker and Parasite
Since Itchy & Scratchy are no longer on the program, Krusty shows eastern Europe's favorite comedy cat & mouse team “Worker & Parasite.” The comedy is better suited for those in Yekaterinburg.
Krusty Has A Heart Attack
The closest Krusty has ever come to truly “killing it” is during a blooper from his show. After advertising his pork products, Krusty has one of the funniest heart attacks we’ve ever seen!
