TV history was made on Sunday night as 'The Simpsons' became the first animated show to attempt a live broadcast, with a three minute segment.
After well over a quarter of a century on the air, ‘The Simpsons’ attempted an animated TV first during last weekend’s episode when Homer appeared live via motion-capture technology in order to answer fan questions.
During the final three minutes of Sunday night’s episode (May 15th), titled ‘Simprovised’, Homer appeared in a separate segment in order to answer pre-screened fan questions about events that had happened that very day. Dan Castellaneta, the voice artist who provides Homer’s voice, did a set of questions each for the East Coast and West Coast broadcasts.

On twitter showrunner Al Jean treated fans to a look at two pages of the un-produced episode, which was rejected by the singer himself.
Prince had been asked to appear in his own ‘Simpsons’ episode.
According to ‘Simpsons’’ lore, the episode was a follow-up to season three opener ‘Stark Raving Dad’ in which Leon Kompowsky believed he was Michael Jackson, with the King of Pop providing Leon’s voice.
