"Dancin' Homer" is the fifth episode of the second season of The Simpsons. It first aired on the Fox network in the United States on November 8, 1990. In this episode, Homer fires up the crowd at a Springfield Isotopes baseball game and is chosen to be the team's new mascot. He becomes a well liked attraction very fast and the "Isotopes" start a winning streak. As a result, Homer has ranked up to a team in Capital City, the "Capital City Capitals". The Simpson family moves there, but Homer fails to excite the crowd, and the family returns home.
