Before home time.

'Playdate With Destiny (2020)' is the second Maggie-based 'Simpsons' short, which marks the show's 'Fox to Disney' transition with a smile and a wink. It's a decently enjoyable experience. It has a simple story and is stuffed with a fair amount of referential visual humour. It isn't exactly exciting and it's very predictable, but it's engaging enough and never even comes close to overstaying its welcome. Overall, it's enjoyable. 6/10

In this silent Simpsons short film that appeared before Onward in theaters, baby Maggie tries to reconnect with a boy she met at the playground. This is neither good nor bad, just there.

A little background: This is a sequel of sorts to the previous Maggie Simpson short The Longest Daycare. They're similar in format, silent and filmed from the angle of Maggie's point of view. Playdate's issue is that it pales in comparison to its predecessor. Daycare had the better jokes, rhythm and direction. More importantly, it was original. This just feels like it's trying too hard to recapture lightning in a bottle.

There are some funny moments, especially one at the beginning, but mostly this short just coasts. Animation is good for what it is. Again the effort given to show the world from Maggie's height is commendable.

You might get more out of this if you haven't seen Longest Daycare, and if you're a Simpsons completionist, go nuts. However, this isn't anything anyone really needs to take the effort to see. (I do encourage you to see Longest Daycare if you haven't yet. It's free and legally/officially available on Youtube.)

I'd like to see more like this.

I'm a pretty harsh critic, and I agree that this short was not bad but nothing special. However, I'd really like to see more Simpsons shorts like these.

Don't replace The Simpsons (30 min show) with these, however, since that's just irreplaceable.
