Let's All Watch 'The Simpsons' For 12 Days and 12 Nights


The Simpsons Matt Groening

Mecca for Simpsons fans has arrived, no pilgrimage necessary. The utopian moments that is a 25-season marathon kicks off at 10 a.m. ET with the movie sandwiched in-between it all. It’s probably an irresponsible move from FXX, as you can pretty much guarantee some fantastic attention seeker will attempt to stay up for 12 days straight armed to the teeth with Mountain Dew and Cheetos (or Freetos) and inevitably perish.  

The SimpsonsThe Simpsons

You could try and play The Simpsons drinking game while attempting to stay up throughout the marathon, but considering that involves drinking every time Homer does, we can’t advise it on health grounds. Also, you’ll perish.

Jane Fonda Willem Dafoe The Simpsons Matt Groening

As The Simpsons enters a remarkable 26th season, Jane Fonda and Willem Dafoe are set to lend their voices to two characters in storylines pivotal to the main characters in the show.

Fonda will play grumpy millionaire, Mr. Burn's, girlfriend, while Dafoe will have the daunting task of being Bart's new teacher, Mr Lassen, although he has a few surprises in store for Bart that are sure to make his school life even more of a living hell.

Simpsons Death: It's Krusty The Clown or Rabbi Hyman Krustofski


Matt Groening The Simpsons Dan Castellaneta

Speaking at a Television Critics Association panel on Sunday, Simpsons show runner Al Jean has all but confirmed the impending death on The Simpsons will see either Bart’s favourite clown, Herschel Shmoikel Pinchas Yerucham Krustofski (better known as Krusty The Clown) meet his maker. Or it might be the depressed entertainer’s father, Rabbi Hyman Krustofski.

Krusty The ClownKrusty The Clown

Jean said the clues were “obvious”, eluding a gasping audience towards an episode entitled “A Clown in The Dumps”. Of course, that could mean Krusty’s perennial sadness is exacerbated by the death of his father. And for anyone claiming Krustofski isn’t a "major character"… well you’d be right. But Jean did recently admit that the Springfield resident who dies isn't "iconic".

Is 'The Simpsons'/'Family Guy' Crossover Episode Such A Good Idea?


Seth Macfarlane Matt Groening

Some things are meant to be mixed together, even if it sounds like a shocking idea to begin with. Think peanut butter and jelly, labradors and poodles, chocolate milk and salt…all great combinations that magically enhance each other, even though your initial gut instinct may warn you against them. However, a Simpsons/Family Guy combo?

The Simpsons Family Guy Crossover EpisodeThe Simpsons and the Griffins definitely won't all fit on the famous sofa

Word on the street is that an hour long episode, combining the two cartoons, is set to air this September. In the crossover episode, titled ‘The Simpsons Guy’, the Griffin family will travel to Springfield, where they become acquainted with the Simpson family. While Stewie and Bart bond over skateboards (and mischief, no doubt), Meg and Lisa will also become pals. Disgruntled wives Lois and Marge vow to abandon their household responsibilities (Thelma and Louise style, perhaps?) as their husbands initially make friends before, predictably, clashing.
