the creative genius behind the animated hits The Simpsons and Futurama,
has revealed he planned a spin-off show with Krusty The Clown. However,
in a cool twist, the show would not be animated.
"I thought it would be so cool to do a live-action spin-off," he says. "I wrote a pilot in which Krusty moves to LA and gets his own talk show. We had this running joke that Krusty was living in a house on stilts, and there were beavers gnawing their way through the stilts. But somebody pointed out how expensive it was to hire trained beavers and equally prohibitive mechanical beavers would be."
