The season will be the Shrek-iest :lol: , namely hope for only good from the franchise:rolleyes: (good start of thread, btw)

Also, little notes to correct: 1) The B = me = Bohdan:D

2) several of these members weren't active for years (including S32 thread)

3) Megan Amram isn't in the show yet. She could be removed from that list and replaced by Rob Oliver (who joined Twitter in Oct'20)

4) John Kern's profile (muddyallen) isn't active

I like that Shrek font. Hopefully Season 33 will get off to a great start.

1) Done.

2) This is a collabritive list of NHCers who have contributed to the threads from recently, to years back. I'll try to add more, though it will be

3) I've added Rob Oliver on the list. However, even though shem might've left the show, I'll just keep Megan Arman on just in case if anyone objects to her removal.

4) As the account doesn't exist anymore, I've removed it off the list.

Could you add Maggie Roswell and Hank Azaria to the Simpsons Cast and Crew who are on Twitter?

Michael Price has seemingly left the show. Whether it's for good or temporary remains to be seen. We still have a final season of F is for Family in development. That commitment could be the reason.

But anyone who's seen The Last Barfighter ought to notice he wasn't in the opening credits. It's a first, after nearly 19 consecutive seasons.

EDIT: it's temporary. It was indeed the F is for Family schedule. He'll be back next year. And by next year, I mean this one. The upcoming production line.

What's up guys? I just figured out that The Longest Marge is actually the reference to the 2005 film which is The Longest Yard. No joke!

Err...
The Longest Yard
The Longest Ride
The Longest Time
The Longest Johns
The Longest Line


There isn't any obviously in title pun here so far.:gatorshrug2:

Remember "Three dreams Denied" - the pun was opened just after episode story revealed.

UPD. Wait a minute... I discovered Justin's "source" in braces, [made by himself:D]

New season thread? You know what that means...

Here is the list of Season 33 NFL regular season nationwide (well, Eastern and Central time zone-wide, anyway) lead-ins (and possible overruns past 8:00 Eastern):
September 12 (okay, this is before Season 33 begins)
September 26
October 10
October 31 (although this should be World Series Game 5 night, and Fox usually schedules repeats just in case the World Series ends in 4 games)
November 7
November 21
November 28
December 19 (although this should be a repeat)
January 2
January 9

January 2 is 99% a repeat. If you still doubt, answer the question: has ever the new episode aired on that date?

Jan 2nd can also be considered as "New Year celebration countination" :beerbang: (back to the present, we're in May still)

There has never been an episode on that date. The only thing that Wikisimpsons listed as released on that date is a Bart & Co comic (in the UK, so nothing in the USA at all)

Since Season 31,Homer socks has last seen on Screenless,I'm wondering when will Homer's socks on his cuff pants will reappear again on Season 33 & 34 because Season 32 was an absence like since Warrin Priests 1&2.

I hate to say this friz, but there WON'T be a UABF28, it's not gonna happen. Because there's only 16 more production episodes (not 22) left from the UABF production cycle that are yet to be revealed so far
