That's funny. Sonic Boom didn't feel like the Simpsons. In fact, it was way too family-friendly to be anything like the Simpsons.
to even Comedy Chimp essentially serving as the show's equivalent of Krusty the Clown.
Let me guess, Comedy Chimp's character is a metaphor for how "business is where dreams go to die", right? My reason for thinking this? In one episode, two kids see a picture of him in his younger days and comment how he has a 'hint of hope in his eyes', implying that jobs crush dreams (but you don't need jobs for that).
