The Simpson’s crew came back to San Diego Comic-Con once again this year to talk abot the upcoming season. Matt Groening brought his usual dry sardonic persona and his usual crew including Al Jean, Matt Selman, David Silverman, and Mike Anderson. The event would also bring two special unannounced guests…
Before the panel began though, there was a humorous clip with Homer and Marge addressing the news of their split next season. They didn’t actually confirm or deny anything and then we were treated to a clip of Homer becoming enraptured by the hairpiece of Donald Trump. Groening also took a moment to introduce the new BONGO COMICS Jimbo Jones #1.
There was not just one but TWO surprise guests. First, Nancy Cartwright ran across the stage dressed in a purple superhero outfit. She unmasked herself and took her seat with the panelists. It was her first official Comic-Con! Cartwright is best known as the voice of Bart Simpson but also voices several characters on the show including regulars like Nelson, Ralph, and even Maggie Simpson!
When it came time to talk about the Treehouse of Horror for this year, the next surprise guest was brought on stage… none other than Guillermo del Toro who created the Cough Gag for this year’s special.
