Matt Groening Says:

Welcome to Season Eleven of The Simpsons. Here are some of the best, or at least most disturbing, episodes ever, including the ones in which Bart and Homer end up in a leper colony, Apu and Manjula have octuplets, Moe gets a facelift, Homer annoys Mel Gibson, Maude Flanders gets killed, Bart goes beserk and plows through Springfield in a tank, Lisa grows up to be president, and Homer is abducted by evil horse-jockey trolls. Not to drop names, but this season we exploited the voice talents of Lucy Lawless, Gary Coleman, Kid Rock, Dick Clark, Edward Asner, Charlie Rose, Jan Hooks, Penn & Teller, and Britney Spears. I could go on and on. So I will: Tim Robbins, Shawn Colvin, John Goodman, Parker Posey, Don Cheadle, Butch Patrick, Jay North, Ron Howard, Henry Winkler, The B-52's, and Willie Nelson.

So on behalf of everyone at the Simpsons Creative Unit, thank you for the pure joy of your ongoing enthusiasm, which we find truly inspiring as we endeavour to keep on amusing and surprising you.

Your cartoon chum,
Matt Groening
