“I’m one of the people that always wanted the Coyote to eat the Road Runner, so you can see where this is going,” Jean told EW. “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.”
However, no fear “Simpsons” fans, Bart Simpson won’t be gone forever. When a fans asked Al Jean via Twitter if Bart would be back after the Halloween special his reply was “Yes absolutely. We’re not nuts.”
