After a preview for Treehouse of Horror XIX (which features a homage to Peanuts) the panel for The Simpsons went straight into audience questions. Here are the highlights courtesy TV Squad.
- Guest stars that will be appearing on the show’s 20th season include Dennis Leary in the second episode and Seth Rogan will also star and write an episode to air later in the season.
- Al Jean, responding to a question about whether there will be another movie, said that a script would have to be really right in order to create another one.
- Matt says he’s amazed that none of the other major networks have stepped up like Fox to produce smart animated fare, though is glad that the cable nets have picked up the slack.
- When asked where the writers get their jokes, Groening deadpanned “Family Guy“. After the applause died down, Al Jean responded that some of the jokes come from personal experiences.
