The episode was written by Futurama and Simpsons writer J. Stewart Burns. It will be recorded in August 2013, and will air on Fox, as either the season-25 finale, in May 2014, or the season-26 premiere, in fall 2014. [1]

Plot

Bart Simpson does something that affects the future in a really bad way, so Bender travels back in time to kill him. [1]

Production

Al Jean said of the episode:

Futurama is such an easy fit. (...) It's really funny, and their show lends itself to any variety of plot lines. By having them on, we have a little freedom... The biggest thrill for me is that we don't have to adjust the animation style. [1]

Trivia

Allusions

    • Coincidentally, Ellison will guest-star in a season-25 episode of The Simpsons. [3]
