Per today’s official press release:
Marvel fans won’t want to miss “Bart the Bad Guy” (Season 31, Episode 14) starring Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige, “Avengers: Endgame” directors Anthony and Joseph Russo, and Maria Hill Actor Cobie Smulders. After first debuting in the short film “Maggie Simpson in ‘Playdate with Destiny,” Baby Hudson makes his Simpsons return in “The Incredible Lightness of Being a Baby” (Season 31, Episode 18). The season also includes the 30th episode in the legendary “Treehouse of Horror” anthology as well as the series’ first “Thanksgiving of Horror” (Season 31, Episode 8).
The thirty-first season? Ay Carumbah, this is yet another article I’ve written this week that is making me feel less like Bart and more like Grandpa Simpson. I mean, I do enjoy yelling at clouds, but where has the time gone? I can still remember watching the very first episode of The Simpsons when it aired in May of 1990 when I was only 9-years-old. This old gray mare ain’t what she used to be, I guess.
If you’re a Disney+ subscriber why not watch some episodes of The Simpsons to lift your spirits after a long, pandemic-fueled week? As for me, I’ll be escaping to the wood this weekend, just like the Simpson family did for their historic first episode way back when. See, everything comes full circle. You’re welcome.
