The late Eartha Kitt also lends her voice talents to the episode.

Additional guest stars paying Springfield a visit next season include Coldplay's Chris Martin, Sarah Silverman, football greats Eli Manning and Peyton Manning, sportscaster Bob Costas, UFC champion Chuck Liddell and actress Angela Bassett.
