2014 Harvey

2014 TOPPS MINI DIE-CUT MATT HARVEY Episode 7F16 of The Simpsons is a classic entry from 1991 named “Oh Brother, Where Art Thou?”– a title cribbed from Preston Sturges’ 1941 comedy Sullivan’s Travels, and later appropriated by the Coen brothers for their Depression-era riff on Homer’s “Odyssey.” In the episode, Homer (the Springfieldian one, not the ancient Greek) discovers through a cascading series of events that he has a long-lost half-brother.
