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.

January 14, 2009 kicked off the "Best. 20 Years. Ever.," a year-long global 20th anniversary celebration of all things SIMPSONS.
