The shows creators are planning his death at Halloween.

It seems that after 25 Halloween Specials, the writers at The Simpsons have finally agreed to let Sideshow Bob kill Bart Simpson. It is expected to happen this year.

You’re going to see Sideshow Bob do something he’s wanted to do for a long time,” the animated classic’s executive producer Al Jean recently told EW. “I’m one of the people that always wanted the Coyote to eat the Road Runner, so you can see where this is going. When I was a kid, I wanted the rabbit to get the Trix… I hated frustration comedy, so we’ll scratch that itch on the Halloween special.”


For over 20 years Sideshow Bob has tried to seek revenge on Bart, and has failed every time. It seems now is the time that viewers are exciting for the murder of a ten-year-old boy.

Will you be tuning into The Simpsons to see it? Does anyone actually still tune in to The Simpsons?
