Is Homer Simpson at death’s do’h?
That may be the question on the minds of many Simpson fans after a new clip, shown at the Comic-con conference in San Diego, was revealed to have been for a show that will feature the demise of a major character. Comments from showrunner Al Jean imply that a beloved Simpsons character will meet his or her maker in a show scheduled for September 28 called “Clown in the Dumps.” The title suggests that Krusty the Clown might be the one to push up the daisies, or perhaps he will be a sad clown because of the loss of the doughnut eating favorite family man whose voice won Dan Castellaneta an Emmy.
The popular animated American TV show which has run 25 seasons has a record syndication agreement with FXX, and a large “Homer’s Dome” can be seen outside of the Comic-Con conference. FXX will show the episodes from all 25 seasons in a 12 hour day, 24 hour a day marathon for Simpsons obsessives.
Simpson’s creator, Matt Groening, commented, “We probably had more final episodes than any other animated show.”
