  • LABF18 – “Pranks and Greens”
  • LABF19 – “Rednecks and Broomsticks”
  • LABF20 – “Once Upon a Time in Springfield”

Known plots and guest stars

  • Jonah Hill will guest star in the episode “Pranks and Greens” as Andy, an adult prankster.
  • The Smothers Brothers, Peyton Manning, Eli Manning and Cooper Manning will guest star in an episode in which Bart is jealous that Lisa has a little sister and fantasizes that he has a brother. The episode will air in December 2009. Jean said having the Smothers Brothers, who will sing a song over the end credits, on the show was “a dream come true.” All three Mannings recorded their parts in New Orleans under the supervision of The Simpsons writer Tim Long. Jean said the staff liked Peyton’s work on Saturday Night Live, “and Cooper is really funny, too. They were really good [in the episode].”
  • Neve Campbell will guest star in “Rednecks and Broomsticks” as a Wiccan called Cassandra who the townspeople believe has cursed them.
  • An episode to air in February and coincide with the 2010 Winter Olympics will feature Marge and Homer taking up curling and participating in a mixed-doubles event with Agnes and Seymour Skinner. The writers wanted an Olympics-themed episode, and the script was written by Rob LaZebnik. LaZebnik originally considered having the plot revolve around Homer competing in four-man bobsled but decided a curling episode would allow for the plot to revolve around Homer and Marge.
  • Sarah Silverman will play Bart’s new girlfriend “who alternately loves him and hates him for no reason.”
  • Gary Larson, Jordan Nagai, Bob Costas, Chuck Liddell and Angela Bassett are to guest star in yet to be announced episodes.
  • Sacha Baron Cohen is to play an Israeli tour guide in an episode entitled “The Greatest Story Ever D’ohed” in which the family visit the Holy Land and Homer becomes convinced he is the Messiah. The episode is tentatively scheduled be broadcast on March 28, 2010 (Palm Sunday). In March 2009, executive producer Al Jean said that the writers wanted to produce an episode where the family visits the Holy Landbecause they had not been there yet. He added, “The premise will be that the Christians, the Jews and Muslims are united in that they all get mad at Homer. It’s the only thing they can agree on.”

20th Anniversary episodes

Two episodes are tentatively scheduled to air January 14, 2010 along with The Simpsons 20th Anniversary Special.

  • The episode “Once Upon a Time in Springfield” will see Anne Hathaway return to the show, this time voicing an actress playing Princess Penelope drafted in to the Krusty the Clown Show to generate more young, female viewers and ends up in a relationship with Krusty. Jackie Mason will return to voice Krusty the Clown’s father Rabbi Hyman Krustofski. Eartha Kitt also recorded a role before her death in December 2008.
  • Kelsey Grammer will return as Sideshow Bob in an episode where he becomes a neighbor of the Simpsons.
  • The band Coldplay will guest star in an episode which sees Homer win the lottery and hires the band to play for him and Bart. Coldplay drummer Will Champion commented on the appearance: “We actually went to [watch] a read-through for an [other] episode about seven years ago. We were staying in Los Angeles and our friend—our manager—I think knows someone to do with the whole program. So we just went down and had a listen, while all the actors were reading their lines, and we were just blown away that we were even there. From then, we just thought it would be amazing to make it on an episode. It’s definitely one of those moments where you have to pinch yourself. It’s been around for so long.” The band released a statement saying the episode would air January 14.

20th anniversary

In 2009, to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the premiere of The Simpsons, Fox announced earlier in the year that a year-long celebration of the show titled “Best. 20 Years. Ever.” would run from January 14, 2009 to January 14, 2010. As part of the celebration, documentary filmmaker Morgan Spurlock will direct and produce The Simpsons 20th Anniversary Special – In 3-D! On Ice!, a documentary special that will examine the “cultural phenomenon of The Simpsons“. It will air on January 14, 2010 on Fox. Production began at Comic-Con 2009. It will include interviews with the cast and fans of the show. Despite the title, Spurlock says the special “most likely will not be in 3-D nor on ice.”

For the week of November 9, several Fox shows (including HouseLie to MeBones and Fringe) will feature clues and homages to the show as part of an “on-air scavenger hunt”. Viewers who spot the clues can win prizes at
