Simpsons News: Cool Articles You May Have Missed

Good something Springfield building Addicts!

Wookiee popping by to share some recent news articles about the Best. Show. Ever. Periodically we like to share these with y’all. I briefly talk about each one but click on the links for the real meat and potatoes of each.

First off… something for the gamers. While I never really understood the fascination with Minecraft, my young nephew is obsessed with it. Lots of other kids too based on some Halloween costumes I saw. Minecraft is a poor parents dream considering you can just paint old cardboard boxes I suppose. Anywho… word has it that The Simpsons are joining the game. Check it out.

Here’s the announcement from Xbox:

Of course, if you never saw it the couch gag for “Luca$” (S25:E17) was done completely minecraft syle.  Pretty cool.

Next up… the A.V. Club is running an entire week of Simpsons content in honor or the 25th anniversary of the show becoming a weekly primetime series.  Here’s the announcement:

So far the articles have been pretty cromulent.  Here’s their review of “Bart’s New Friend” (S26:E11).

Also a really good read about what it’s like to write for the Best. Show. Ever.  It’s basically an interview with writer Michael Price.  I really enjoyed the insights.

People magazine also got in on the celebration with a good article including 25 touching moments in The Simpsons.  I smiled remembering the moments on this list although they forgot one of my favorites.  A flashback with Homer and Marge from “Girls Just Want to Have Sums” (S17:E19).

“C’mon baby, the only math you need is you plus me equals forever.”

I love this line and must admit to have used it once.  Here’s the article:

The next article I wanted to share is info on the show’s recent Je Suis Charlie moment.

Last up just because I love this article, I really felt I had to share info about Simpsons Superman Sam Simon.  It is sad to know the co-creator of the Best. Show. Ever. is dying of cancer, but if you hadn’t heard about him donating his $100 million fortune to charity, it bears repeating.  Here’s the NY Daily News article from last November.

The info was brought out in the news again this week courtesy of NBC so I felt it’d be pertinent.  All I can say is Sam seems like a bonafide awesome dude and I’m so thankful for The Simpsons being in my life.  Best wishes to him and his family and tons of fan love.

Well that wraps up this edition of sharing Simpsons News.  Hopefully you enjoyed one or two of the articles.  Keep it classy and take life one tap at a time.

TTFN… Wookiee out!

  1. Great article chock full of various Simpsons related info (Sam Simon is a top notch Producer, very touching story re: cancer battle) and Minecraft Simpsons is an epic example of how art embraces pop culture … 🙂

    Now for some brief criticism !
    Dear EA,
    A new year in Tapped Out! Zero new Quests (Level Updates)!
    The best you can do is bring back (again) thee worst pop up character (Gil) to try and schill the Queen Helvetica Castle / Lisa Queen Helvetica set?! Epic Fail EA!

  2. Thanks Willie, I especially enjoyed the People article, I even teared up recalling some of those moments. The hubby thinks I’m crazy when I say Simpson’s is the most perfect show ever, but the proof is in the pudding!

  3. Interesting article – I learned a lot from it! So sad to hear about Sam Simon though. 😔
