RIP Bart Simpson

794146_770x517During a panel at Austin’s ATX Festival  Simpsons showrunner Al Jean made it known that this year’s 26th annual installment of Treehouse of Horror will feature Sideshow Bob (voiced as always by Kelsey Grammer) finally murdering Bart Simpson.

I personally think this “stunt” is way too little too late.  As I lamented recently in light of the loss of Harry Shearer the Simpsons for me, unlike Family Guy, stopped being funny or even interesting like fifteen years ago.

Even the annual Tree House of Horror episodes, once a Halloween fest staple has become boring and unfunny.
