As the clouds roll by, a mysterious logo comes closer. A choir in perfect harmony utters: “The Simpsons.” We fly overhead passing a nuclear power plant and Semi-Painless Dentistry, as it fades into Springfield Elementary School. In a window, we see a deformed-looking child writing; “I will not skateboard in the halls” many times over. Once the school bell rings, his eyes light up, and he is immediately out of the school on his skateboard. As soon as he hits the sidewalk, it shows an equally deformed man in a hazmat suit, readily leaving work, but fails to see the rod of plutonium in his shirt. It then transitions into a mother doing groceries as her baby is placed into the food bag. She pops her head out as the mother lets out a sigh of relief. It cuts to a little girl playing the saxophone evidently passionate about jazz, but she is sent out for doing so. It transitions to the man driving his car and tossing out the rod of plutonium, only to be caught by the same boy riding down the street on his skateboard. It seems as if the same baby, as previously mentioned, is driving a car, but as it zooms out, her mother is the one actually driving, the baby only mimicking her mother. The boy on the skateboard, the man in the hazmat, and the mother and her baby meet and cram each other on the same couch, eventually breaking it. The iconic Simpsons theme song plays, beginning the episode.
Now imagine that won’t happen anymore. The Simpsons is finally ending after 30 years, according to the show’s composer Danny Elfman. “Fox has renewed the cartoon for two more series, which will see new episodes until 2021,” but Danny has heard that “The Simpsons is in its final year.” It is a true shame to all three generations that this show has united together for the better.
