Poor Milhouse Van Houten. As an intelligent young man full of self-hatred he’s never really had a chance to win at life. Being Bart Simpson’s best friend hasn’t helped, either. And this song, the latest from one of our favorite up-and-coming musical comedy Web stars Allie Goertz, drives the point– and it just might make you well up a little. Accompanied by Megan Barrett, the duo form CossbySweater; they’re debut album will be released May 4 on iTunes and Spotify.

Interesting sidenote: Goertz will make an appearance on the new season of Arrested Development the same day the CossbySweater album comes out!

    Were they even alive when the episodes they sing about aired.

      does it matter? i love All in the Family and i was 2 years old when it went off the air. way to be negative!

        How is asking a question negative?

        • dylan

          asking a question isn’t negative. asking that question is negative. the implication is that they’re too young to be passionate about a show that wasn’t created in or for their generation. i think any rational reader would agree that’s the takeaway from your comment. why else would you ask that question?

          • Gromold

            It might be just the opposite, as in “wow, they’re so young but still passionate about the simpsons – awesome”

            questions end in question marks, that was meant to be more of a statement, I don’t think dylan was actually looking for an answer, he was just stirring the pot.

            I wanted to know if they were or not.

      how the hell does that even begin to matter even in the slightest possible bit

        Do you know?

        • dylan

          Allie is 22 or 23.

            That makes them born around 1989-1990. Most of these jokes came from the mid-late 1990′s, so I’d say they were already born.

            That goes to show the reach the show has had.

    I wish they’d fit in a line like “But your mom says you’re cool.”

  • rasmus

    • Me

      Yeah, I’m inclined to agree with you.

  • bert

  • Dude McDuderson

    Two cute girls with wispy voices singing about a cartoon character, is this a joke about hipsters?
