"When Bongos Collide!" was a comic book storyline that ran through Itchy & Scratchy Comics #3, Simpsons Comics #5, and Bartman #3.  In it, the residents of Springfield were transformed into reckless super-powered beings (the story behind all this is really funny, and I don't want to give too much away).  Included were parodies of the Image Comics teams Youngblood (as "Old Blood") and WildC.A.T.s: Covert Action Teams (as WildB.R.A.T.s: Wild, Bullying, Rowdy, Adolescent Team):

Note the reference to the name-change of a certain member of Youngblood.  For more info on "When Bongos Collide!", check out The Simpsons Wiki or Wiki Simpsons.
