Season 26: Personal Highlights

Hi folks and welcome to another Simpsons Sunday. This week it is a review of my own personal highlights from Season 26. I will go through them in no particular order and there are many.

Homer learns to play bass and plays in a cover band called Cover Craft:

Marge opens up a sandwich Franchise chain:

Homer becomes Bart’s new friend, as he has been hypnotized to have the mind of a 10-year-old boy:

Bart and Lisa write their own anthem for Springfield cold Why Springfield: Why Not:

Marge gets a job driving taxi:

The Simpsons and Futurama team up in a cross over episode:

Homer nearly gets eaten by a race of Aliens on Kang and Cotos’s home planet:

We flash back to when Bart was 4 and Lisa was 2, to explore how and why they fight:

Krusty’s Father dies:

Bart has a new psychopathic fourth-grade teacher named Jack Lassen voiced by Willem Dafoe.

It’s not a complete list of everything that has happened but that’s the point… this is all about the highlights for me. Actually, the last one I mentioned probably scared me the most. I had some strict teachers but nobody as frightening as Mr. Lassen.

On the birthday front, Danny Elfman, who composed the Simpsons theme song cellebrated a birthday on Friday. He turned 62 and has done other composing for film and television. He was also in the new wave band Oingo Boingo. Remember them? I should be perfectly honest and say that I never really listened to them because I grew up mainly a rock and metal fan and still am to this day.

Well, that’s about it for this week. In the mean time, I recommend checking out Chris Ladesma’s blog. He is the Music Editor for The Simpsons and has been since day 1.

One final thing to mention is that you can follow Simpsons Executive Producer Al Jean on Twitter and his Twitter handle is @AlJean.
