Today Olly Moss made a quick poster for his wall based on his favorite musical of all time, “Stop The Planet of The Apes, I Want To Get Off”
The title of the musical is a Simpson’s parody of the musical Stop the World – I Want to Get Off! The song “Dr. Zaius” is a parody of the song “Rock Me Amadeus” by Falco. The music was written by Alf Clausen and the lyrics by Jack Barth.
The song is featured in “A Fish Called Selma” which is the nineteenth episode of The Simpsons’ seventh season and originally aired on March 24, 1996. The episode sees Troy McClure attempt to resurrect his acting career by marrying Selma Bouvier. Show runners Bill Oakley and Josh Weinstein were fans of Phil Hartman and wished to produce an episode which focused on his character McClure. Freelance writer Jack Barth wrote the episode, and Mark Kirkland directed it.
