The Simpsons' Score Big with Original Episode Following Super Bowl Xxxix Sunday, February 6, on FOX

[via press release from FOX]

"THE SIMPSONS" SCORE BIG WITH ORIGINAL EPISODE FOLLOWING SUPER BOWL XXXIX SUNDAY, FEBRUARY 6, ON FOX

Starting Lineup of Guest Voices Includes All-Star Athletes Tom Brady, Warren Sapp, Yao Ming, LeBron James and Michelle Kwan

Two-time Super Bowl champion Tom Brady, seven-time Pro Bowl defensive tackle Warren Sapp; NBA All-Stars Yao Ming and LeBron James, and Olympic figure skating medalist Michelle Kwan guest-voice on THE SIMPSONS airing immediately following Super Bowl XXXIX Sunday, Feb. 6 (approx. 10:00-10:30 PM ET/7:00-7:30 PM PT) on FOX.

In THE SIMPSONS post-Super Bowl XXXIX episode, "Homer and Ned's Hail Mary Pass," after Homer inadvertently performs a wild, crowd-pleasing dance at a local carnival, he is hired by several sports figures � including Brady, James, Sapp, Yao and Kwan, guest-starring as themselves � to choreograph their victory dances. After his dances prove successful, Homer is tapped to choreograph the Super Bowl halftime show. Panicked the night before the event, Homer enlists the help of his neighbor, Ned Flanders, and together they put on a non-violent, deeply meaningful halftime show that America chastises for its blatant display of decency.

In anticipation of how he would be drawn, football great Sapp said: "I don't want to be big with a little shirt! Cover me up a little bit! � I love THE SIMPSONS so whatever I am, I am." And 7'6" basketball giant Yao joked, "as long as I don't look like a monster!"

"Just to be a part of Super Bowl Sunday is great," said James. "I'll be a SIMPSONS fan till I die," claimed the basketball star.

Olympic medalist Kwan stated: "It was really an honor to be asked to do THE SIMPSONS. I had a great experience."

THE SIMPSONS is a Gracie Films Production in association with 20th Century Fox Television. James L. Brooks, Matt Groening, and Al Jean are the executive producers. Film Roman is the animation house.
