King Homer Returns

King Homer, not seen on The Simpsons since "Treehouse of Horror III," made an appearance back in September in the couch gag of the "Jazzy and the Pussycats" episode (the one with a special appearance by the White Stripes):

My favorite part, besides Homer's trademark scream at the end when the biplanes open fire, is how he he deftly transfers Marge from his hand to his foot while climbing the Empire State Building -- an obvious homage to Peter Jackson's King Kong movie, in which the giant ape tossed Ann Darrow around like a ragdoll so often that she should have suffered whiplash.

Anyway, I've updated the King Homer entry in the Super Simpsons Handbook with screencaps from the above clip.
