There are many recurring gags in The Simpsons history but one that stands out and has stood the test of time are Bart’s prank calls to Moe.

Briefly, Bart will usually call Moe’s Tavern and ask for someone by their name. What Moe never realizes is that the name is a pun or double entrendre which Bart hides by saying the last name first. The joke is revealed when Moe yells it out loud and everyone starts laughing. The other key ingredient to this gag are Moe’s responses. With every prank they seem to get more cruel and unusual and are wholly disproportionate to whats actually been done to him.

So without further ado here are my 10 best prank calls:

10, Some Enchanted Evening, Season 1


9, Moaning Lisa, Season 1


8, Blood Feud, Season 2


7, Flaming Moe’s, Season 3


6, Homer The Smithers, Season 7

In this one Bart doesn’t actually make the call but Moe believes its him and proceeds devilishly outline what he’d do to him.


5, Principal Charming, Season 2


4, Burns Verkaufen der Kraftwerk, Season 3


3, New Kid on the Block, Season 4


2, One Fish, Two Fish, Blow Fish, Blue Fish, Season 2


1, Treehouse of Horror II, Season 3

This one makes me laugh every time simply because its just so ridiculous. How could Moe not realize what he was saying!!!
