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.

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".
