The Tube Bar prank calls inspired Bart Simpson’s calls to Moe

Matt Groening has declared himself as a fan of the Tube Bar prank calls tapes, particularly the “Garden Grove calls”.

The running joke on The Simpsons featuring Bart making prank calls to Moe’s bar asking to speak to patrons with funny names was apparently inspired by them.

On the other hand, Groening has also described the similarity between Bart’s jokes and the Tube Bar calls as “creative synchronicity“, so it could be just a coincidence.
