Simpsons, The Easter Egg - Special Cameos

Watch the Simpsons episode in which Homer becomes a missionary that goes to Micronesia. In the second PBS fund thing, look at the people who are taking in the calls in the last row. They are all FOX TV shows characters!!! On the left is Bender from Futurama, next a guy from the PJ's, and last is Hank Hill from King of the Hill. Enjoy!

i remember a major fox piss take on the "behind the laughter" episode! Homer enters the fox studio and all it is, is an extremely low budget, small office with a piece of paper on the door which says fox in Ruperts handwriting! Also on the same episode when homer signs the contract he has scruffy handwriting and when Rupert signs his name he has the same writing! this is just a another scene that tells us just how crappy the fox network is! enjoy!

does anyone not remember the opening couch scene where the simpsons all run in sit down on the couch, then homer walks to the corner of the screen tears off the fox logo and the entire family proceeds to stomp on it, possibly one of the best fox bashes yet, also in the episode in the future where lisa is getting married and marge and homer are sitting in bed, and marge says (something like) "ew... fox turned into a hardcore pornography channel so gradually i hardly noticed"

That's not an easter egg, it's a joke. I think it was supposed to be pretty obvious that they were all from FOX. I don't even live in America and I still got the joke. IT'S NOT AN EGG!

Actually Willis... you're half right about the comment Bart makes about "Wouldn't be the first time". When the Simpsons first premiered, it raised Fox from the laughably bad position it was in as a new "fourth" network. It's questionable today if The Simpsons is the only show keeping Fox afloat, esp. with hits such as The X-Files, etc. So Bart was making a reference to The Simpsons giving fox a leg to stand on way back in 89/90.

The Simpsons is constantly bagging Fox, eg the episode where Marge gets a canyonero (Homer held at gun point to say how good Fox is), the Burns alein episode (fake the taping and sell it to the fox network), the superbowl gridiron episode (Homer says if you're Rupert Murdoch then prove it.) These are just a few of the top of my head and Uncle Rupert puts up with it because it is the best show on fox, the longest running cartoon and sitcom and a hell of a money drawer.

Rupert (owner of Fox) answers Bart's call when Bart pledeges $10,000 and says "you've saved my network" then Bart says "wouldn't be the first time" indicating that Simpsons is the only thing keeping fox alive. Another dis.

Yeah, I do Joey: Alfred Hitchcock does a quick walk-by, with a dog if I remember rightly, of the childcare center Maggie's at in "A Streetcar named Marge" - Season 4. This also relates to the part where Homer picks up Maggie, all the babies now have their pacifiers back, and they suck on them, à la "The Birds". As far as I'm aware, Lisa and Bart don't make a movie, perhaps you're thinking of Marge acting in the play.

An other investment reference: Homer tells Lisa he invested in the News Corporation. Lisa tells him that's Fox and the episode ends with the echoing D'oh!

In the episode, "Krusty Gets Kanceled," during the scene where Bart and Lisa visit Krusty in his apartment, they come across a picture of Luke Perry and show it to him. Krusty. Yeah, that's my worthless half-brother, Luke Perry. Lisa. But he's a big star! Krusty (Sneering). Yeah. On FOX!

Another Fox joke: Homer was getting mad at Lisa once and he said 'And we can't watch Fox, cause they own those chemical weapons plants in Syria' (or maybe it was Libya)

Do you think having them in the background could be another nock on fox? Saying that Fox needs your donations?

Aren't Hank Hill and family in (sorry I dont know the episode name) the one where Bart's playing (American) football and Homer takes over as coach? Springfield are playing Arlen and Hank Hill says something like 'I drove 4000(?) miles for this???'

in a more recent episode (unsure of the name) Homer is checking share prices for Animote. It tells him they are up 5 cents or something. Then he shouts Yahoo and it says Yahoo - down 8 cents. Then he says what kind of crap is this then the phone pauses and says - Fox Entertainment down 30 cents(or something)

And the episode where Homer slags off Fox or something, then at the credits reads out somethin like "I'd like to read the following statement, but I do so under *click* ... my own free will. It has come to my attention that NBC sucks. We apologize for misleading you and urge you to watch as many Fox shows as possible. So in summary, NBC bad. Fox good. CBS great-*bang* .. *bang bang bang*"

Fox Mulder from the X-files is in there also. He is drawn as he appeared in the episode where they came to the Simpson house.

Does anyone remember which episode Alfred Hithcock made a cameo appearance? It would have been a reference to his practice of making cameos in his own films. The episode may have been about Lisa and Bart making a film?

My favorite anti-Fox comment was in Mr. Plow. After the low budget commercial starring Bart, Lisa, and Homer, Homer says something to the effect, "Well, it's on a lousy network, but the Simpsons are finally on TV"

Another shot at Fox is made at the very end of an episode (can't remember which), where the family sits down in front of the TV, and a voice says "You are watching the Fox Network". The whole family then replies, in a monotone voice, as if hypnotised "We are watching the Fox Network".

Yes, the Simpsons do make fun of fox all the time, the one that sticks out in my head is Bart and Homer are in the kitchen in their pajama's talking about FOX and Bart makes fun of it, and Homer in a sincere voice says "C,Mon now FOX has a lot of quality programming." They look at each other and both burst out laughing. If I was a writer I would do that too, The Simpsons really are keeping the channel alive. Too bad ratings are going down, please be a Simpsons movie, please be a Simpsons movie, please be a Simpsons movie.

Meethos is right. In the front row, the camera shows the Hill family (their team lost) and Hank says "we drove all the way from Arlen for this?!?" I know this is way off the topic, but have you noticed that its never been made exactly clear as to what state the simpsons live in? I mean, references have been made, but its never been consistently shown in more than one episode. Correct me if I'm wrong, and please e-mail me with clues. Thanks

This is for Matt. I dont know if you've seen the episode where he fills in as Sideshow Luke. If that's the same episode could you let me know?

This is most definitely making fun of Fox. I forgot the episode, but I remember The Simpsons making fun of Fox more than one time.

This is a bit out of topic, but here in norway, TV3 transelated all issues about FOX to rev, the norwegian word for the animal fox, so a lot of ppl here don't understand the fox-jokes.
