The Simpsons Season 34 - Episode 11
The season was announced on March 3, 2021, when it was revealed that The Simpsons had been renewed for its thirty-third and thirty-fourth. The season is the first in which two Treehouse of Horror episodes are aired in a single season: a single 20-minute parody of the 2017 supernatural horror film It, followed by the traditional anthology episode the following week.
"Top Goon" is the eleventh episode of season 34 of The Simpsons and the seven-hundred and thirty-ninth episode overall. It originally aired on December 11, 2022. The episode was written by Joel H. Cohen and directed by Chris Clements. It guest stars Will Forte as King Toot, Stu Grimson as himself, Joe Mantegna as Fat Tony, Dave Schultz as himself, and Tiger Williams as himself.
Season 34 is the 34th season of The Simpsons that premiered on September 25, 2022, with Habeas Tortoise and will conclude on May 21, 2023 with "Homer's Adventure Through the Windshield Glass". This season will include the series' 745th episode, making the total amount of episodes exceed the Simpsons house number. It will also include the 750th episode.
Warning: Spoilers for The Simpsons season 34, episode 11.While The Simpsons season 34, episode 11 saw the show change its iconic opening credits, this was not the first time that the animated sitcom did this in recent outings. The Simpsons has spent season 34 attempting to prove that 35 years on the air has not made the show predictable. To this end, the long-running comedy is discarding the few rules that its fictional universe has and changing what viewers can expect from an episode of The Simpsons.
In an interview with Deadline, Selman expressed his excitement for Season 34 and offered a tease of what is coming next. He name-dropped a few of this season's guest stars, namely Simu Liu and Melissa McCarthy, before offering a few tidbits about the forthcoming episodes, including one "crazy conceptual episode that explains how The Simpsons know the future."
After three decades on air, The Simpsons has developed somewhat of a reputation for its ability to predict the future, causing viewers to occasionally shout "The Simpsons did it!" to actual current events. The latest in a long line of creepy coincidences involves a classic Season 4 episode that somehow managed to predict the COVID-19 pandemic and the rise of so-called "murder hornets" in one fell swoop.
Selman and fellow producer Al Jean previously spoke about how The Simpsons has seemingly managed to foresee future events, telling IGN that it's mostly down to the length of time the show has been on air. "If you just do more episodes for more decades than all the other shows, you're gonna get more predictions right," Selman said. "And we really have all the other shows beat when it comes to decades."
While there may not be a complex algorithm behind its future-predicting power, the upcoming season is now expected to offer the best explantion yet, so you won't want to miss it when it premieres next month. Season 34 of the The Simpsons will officially debut on September 25, with an episode that sees Homer get into "a conspiracy cabal while hunting down a missing turtle," according to Selman.
Fox renewed The Simpsons for two more seasons last year, ensuring that the series will remain on the air until at least 2023, bringing the total episode count to 757. "It's a sincere pleasure to announce the Season 33 and 34 pick-ups for The Simpsons. We keep hoping that, eventually, they'll get it right," Fox Entertainment CEO Charlie Collier joked at the time.
He joined the writing staff of the hit series in 1997 and became a co-showrunner with Al Jean in 2020. Jean has previously shared that he believes the show has been able to continuously predict the future thanks to both luck and the number of episodes produced.

The Simpsons showrunner has teased what fans can expect for the citizens of Springfield when the series returns this fall. In an interview with Deadline, Matt Selman talked about some of the upcoming storylines and guest stars of the long-running Fox animated series, including that the season premiere will focus on Homer (Dan Castellaneta) becoming involved with a conspiracy cabal.
This season will feature two of the show's popular "Treehouse of Horror" Halloween episodes. The series previously had two Halloween episodes back in Season 27, where one was a traditional "Treehouse of Horror" and one was set in the series' normal continuity. One of this year's "Treehouse of Horror" episodes will feature the traditional three-story format, which includes a parody of the anime Death Note. The other one will be a parody of It, which will star Krusty the Clown as Pennywise.
Another episode that will focus on Krusty will be one where he becomes the host of an afternoon talk show. Selman compared Krusty's talk show to the one hosted by Ellen DeGeneres that ran from 2003 to 2022. This season will also feature an episode that explains how The Simpsons predicts the future. One of the series' most notable predictions was the 2000 episode "Bart to the Future," which is set in the future where President Lisa Simpson mentions how Donald Trump was president before her.
One of this season's guest stars will be Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings star Simu Liu playing Lisa's (Yeardley Smith) boyfriend. Lisa's future love life was previously explored in Season 6's "Lisa's Wedding." Melissa McCarthy will also guest star in the season. "It's a really juicy, funny part where she plays a kid who's Homer's rival for love from Grandpa," said Selman. "She plays kind of a quirky kid who has Grandpa's love and Homer's like 'Why does Grandpa like this kid? And why didn't he like me?'" Selman also described the episode as "very emotional."
"I'm very excited about Season 34," said Selman. "You can't just rest on your laurels. You have to be pushing yourself and challenging yourself and making sure every episode is distinct and emotional and visual and compelling and scary and cinematic. So we do that on like 85% of them. That's pretty good. I always thought a B+ was a good grade."
In 1993, The Simpsons went to the Siegfried and Roy type show (season 5 episode 10), where the magicians are attacked by their white tiger during a performance. 10 years later, the real thing happened when Roy was attacked by their white tiger.
OH WAIT! I have an idea! Let's watch old episodes of the Conan O'Brien Show on NBC and TBS, find the ones where he's doing that bit, "In the Year 2000", and see if he has predicted the future! After all. Conan O'Brien used to be a writer for The Simpsons!
The iconic animated series, which has been on the air for a quarter-century has not been shy about tackling sensitive subjects, but the episode, titled Goo Goo Gai Pan, may have been too much for Chinese media watchdogs.Advertisement
The episode, in which the Simpsons travel to China to adopt a baby, shows the family stopping at Tiananmen Square, where hundreds of Chinese residents were killed and injured during pro-Democracy demonstrations in 1989.
When the streaming service Disney+ launched in Hong Kong this month, the episode, which is the 12th episode in Season 16 of The Simpsons, was not available, according to Bloomberg.Advertisement
The missing episode highlights growing censorship concerns in Hong Kong since the Chinese government's national security law was imposed last year after it brutally shut down anti-government protests that had lasted months. 041b061a72
