‘The Simpsons’ jumped the shark in one of its best episodes

The Simpsons jumped the shark in one of my favorite episodes. The term is named after the notorious episode of Happy Days in which Arthur Fonzarelli literally jumps a shark. In this episode, Fonzie is the coolest dude on the show — on television, really — and jumping a shark is actually a parody of coolness. By this logic, the moment The Simpsons jumps the shark should be a creative high point, an episode in which a main character becomes a caricature, that they untether themselves from the reality and logic established until that point.
