Even as a sheltered evangelical, growing up in the 90s it was impossible to miss the Bartmania. He was everywhere. On t-shirts, in video games, advertising Butterfingers. And evangelicals hated him. They hated him way more than any of the other Simpsons. One of my favorite pop culture podcasts, Decoder Ring, has an episode taking a deep dive into this particular era of cultural zeitgeist. I recommend it.
