Definitely liked this one as a 450th episode, as we get somewhat of a status quo change with Krusty deciding to end the episode with Princess Penelope. The best part of this one was definitely the wedding and Bart's attempt to derail it using Krusty's history of exes. Leaving Eartha Kitt in was much appreciated, as I got a big laugh out of her brief moment. Though it's bittersweet, since it's obvious they needed to redo her part to reflect her untimely death.
Can't say much about the sideplot with Homer, Lenny, and Carl getting offered greener pastures in Capital City. But I did like the payoff with Mr. Burns offering them donuts.

True dat. I LOL'd when I read it.
That was Anne Hathaway as Princess Penelope? I couldn't place the voice when she was singing (thought originally it was Amy Adams - as a riff on Disney's Enchanted) but when she spoke she had a Jersey accent so I thought it was the late Brittany Murphy.
Eartha Kitt was a purr-fect cameo.
I thought the girls taking over Krusty's show was a sharp commentary on fanboys hating fangirls' fanaticism. I'm glad they went the age-appropriate Disney princess route and not the Twilight route, but the parallel was still there.

I'd agree. On one particular play, Gumbel enthusiastically called Mike Bell making the first down. "Does he have enough?! YES! He makes the first down!" When, in fact, Bell had simply crossed the red line that denoted the line of scrimmage.
