Elon Musk to guest star in The Simpsons

Elon Musk to guest star in The Simpsons

Tesla and SpaceX founder Elon Musk may have got an electric car company and - quite literally - rockets off the ground, but his biggest achievement is still in store: a guest appearance on The Simpsons. The billionaire inventor will be appearing as himself (in cartoon form, anyway) in one episode in upcoming Season 26 of the hit show, in which he'll pit his vast fortune against that of Mr Burns.

Simpsons FXNOW app to stream all 530 episodes

There's a Simpsons app coming your way this summer put out by the folks at FXNOW, part of the network that took control of the Simpsons empire late last year. It was suggested then that the group would take big measures in making sure the whole Simpsons back-catalogue would be made available to the public, one of these measures including rolling out some long-spanning television channel showings - which could, potentially, last several years without repeating a single episode. Now it's time to discuss the app side of things.

Simpsons headed to Cable in TV’s biggest off-network deal ever

Up until now, The Simpsons had been running on broadcast syndication - Fox, fo be exact - the same place it started (as its own show) back in 1993. Because a cartoon comedy show such as the Simpsons was relatively unheard of at the time, Fox was able to secure a contract that meant they were able to hold complete exclusivity with the show just so long as they were still airing it on their station. Fast forward 26 years and you've got a show that continues to push new episodes.

What we've got this time around (for the "Couch Gag" intro to the show, at least) is a massive three-minute-long homage to the horror genre of films as directed by none other than Guillermo del Toro. This beast of sequence has well over 45 references to both the horror genre in general and the films of del Toro himself - and we're going to list them.

Angry Birds Simpsons in Space is next

Angry Birds Simpsons in Space is next

Today an update to Angry Birds Space has been dropped down for several platforms, it including no less than a teaser for a Simpsons expansion in the near future. What this expansion has to do with outer space, we cannot say, but if that's not a Simpsons-themed pink sprinkled donut, I'll eat my hat. This wont be the first time Rovio has chosen to work with a high-class pop-culture act like the Simpsons, and it wont be the last. It will however be the first time the crew has worked with a television show - perhaps this is their ushering in of their own program?

EA expects Simpsons mobile game to be one of its biggest titles of 2012

EA expects Simpsons mobile game to be one of its biggest titles of 2012

The yellow-skinned Fox cartoon series has kind of fallen out of favor in recent years, but Electronic Arts is planning to release a new mobile app based on The Simpsons that it expects to be a big cash cow moving forward. Or, as Mr. Burns might say, "Excellent." The company is developing the app as a freemium title, meaning players can download it for free and will then be suckered into paying money once they get hooked.
