News: Disney Tweaked; UK's Favorite and Homer in Reeboks

Simpsons News — Posted 30 Dec, 2002 by Scott

Hey fans, a pretty big news update heading your way. First off we get a little preview of the 01/05/03 episode of "Special Edna". "In the story, the family wins a free trip to Orlando after son Bart nominates his fourth-grade instructor, Edna Krabappel, for a Teacher of the Year Award — a competition that sounds a lot like Disney's annual American Teacher Awards." The family visits the "EFCOT" center where "Lisa explains to the family that an EFCOT attraction was designed by people in 1965 who imagined what life would be like in 1987". Although like any episode the show is just fun and games, Disney is very upset about the episode. This is not the first time the show has taken a shot at Disney. Ned's Praiseland makes fun of Disney's Holy Land Experience and they did make fun of the Euro-Disney as well. Read the full article by clicking here.

According to the BBC, The Simpsons has ended as the UK's top-rated show on the charts. Friends came in as a close second but no other program topped this chart throughout 2002. Read this article on the BBC website by clicking here.

Lastly, we know that Reebok uses usually big time athletes for their shoe commercials but there is news of none other than our favorite dad, Homer Simpson, sporting the new shoes for the new Reebok ads for the Reebok Classic. "Homer is perfect for Reebok Classic," says Reebok Chief Marketing Officer Micky Pant. "Our Classic products let people take it easy and relax, and as we all know, Homer is the king of kicking back."

MmMmmm... Classic.
