Well, looks like it was resolved and two more seasons are a go, taking it to Season 25.

Worst Previews wrote:Judd Apatow's 20-Year-Old "The Simpsons" Script to Become an Episode

Earlier this month, director Judd Apatow (Knocked Up, The 40-Year-Old Virgin) revealed that when he was in his twenties he wrote an episode of "The Simpsons," when the show was still in its infancy. At the time, Apatow was trying to get into television, but still unknown in Hollywood. Because of that, "The Simpsons" producers ignored his submission.

Now, over twenty years later, "The Simpsons" producer Al Jean has announced that the show will turn Apatow's script into an episode, which will air next season. "I thought, 'We're always looking for good shows and good writers,'" said Jean. "I sent word to him: 'If you're interested, we'll buy it.' I think he had to find it - it was in one of his boxes."

Jean's decision came after seeing Apatow talk about his "The Simpsons" script on Conan O'Brien's show. He said the following about the plot: "[The Simpsons family] went to see a hypnotism show, [where] 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."

It would have fit perfectly back in the early 90's.. 8-)

Time kind of forgot the Simpsons in terms of how relevant it is

In many ways the show has changed into a soulless rehash of itself, they keep going because they want to poke fun at everything and anything that still goes on out there in the world

i agree.

Even though i am still a fan of the show, i have realised as well that it has turned into a souless rehash of itself

On another note, new episodes will be airing on Ten on Sundays at 6pm (i think from this Sunday?),

Hmm. The Simpsons. They need to add a bit of age to the characters for starters. I have gotten sick of the re-runs they always run. I may watch it at times but not often.

(Oh on another note there is an iPad/iPhone game called 'The Simpsons: Tapped Out')

The odd thing about the show now is it doesnt contain the cheesey "soundbites" which made the show so prominent back in the day

In many ways thats an improvement for the show over 20 years

Marcia Wallace, the lady who voices the key character of Edna Krabappel, Bart's school teacher, has passed on :(
