"Hard Times” features a variety of characters from the television show The Simpsons, most notably greedy billionaire C. Montgomery Burns, who has fallen on difficult times. Just when all hope seems to be lost, Mr. Burns learns to appreciate life’s simple pleasures as he joins other characters enjoying Coca-Cola and Opening Happiness in a neighborhood park.
