Program Notes

The term Kwyjibo was coined in an early The Simpsons animated TV episode in which son Bart invents the word to escape a boring game of Scrabble. When challenged, he defines the word as a big, dumb, balding, North American ape with no chin … and a short temper, which of course refers to his father, Homer Simpson.

The composition Kwyjibo is Montoya's interpretation of what Homer would be like as Bart alternately toys with and taunts him, with just a hint of The Simpsons' musical theme.
