Judd Apatow finally going to produce a ‘Simpsons’ episode he wrote 22 years ago


Comedy director Judd Apatow sat down with Conan O’Brien for the late night host’s new online chat show “Serious Jibber-Jabber” and revealed a very awesome trivia about himself.

Apparently 22 years ago, Apatow wrote an episode for the show “The Simpsons,” a show that Conan was one of its writers during its early days:

After only five Simpsons episodes aired, I sat down and tried to write one when I was in my early twenties. And what it was about was they went to see a hypnotism show and at the hypnotism show, they made Homer think he was the same age at Bart. And then the hypnotist had a heart attack. So now Homer and Bart became best friends and they spent the rest of the show running away because Homer didn’t want responsibility and didn’t want to be brought back to his real age. So I basically copied that for every movie I’ve made since.

According to Apatow, the producers of “The Simpsons” recently gave him a call and told him that his episode is finally going to be produced for next year’s run.

Does that mean “The Simpsons” are going to be funny again?
