The Simpsons Season 18 Episodes

22 Episodes 2006 - 2007

Episode-length parodies abound in the 18th season of "The Simpsons." In "Springfield Up" (a spoof of the "Up" documentary series), a filmmaker chronicles Homer's life from childhood to the present day. "Yokel Chords" finds Lisa tutoring seven children á la "The Sound of Music." And "24 Minutes" presents a crossover with another show that was a hit on FOX at the time, as "24" protagonist Jack Bauer (voice of Kiefer Sutherland) deals with a threat in Springfield. In other events, Marge learns how to navigate the Internet and becomes addicted to a computer game, while Bart dates a 16-year-old girl voiced by Natalie Portman.
