Simpsons artist extraordinaire and our good friend Nina Matsumoto is back, and she's bringing her deep love of Frasier with her for this Sideshow Bob classic. We meet Cecil (who sounds a lot like Niles Crane) as he takes in the seemingly reformed Sideshow Bob in this anti-mystery story. All that plus smell hounds, Maris, and the surprising Japanese title of this episode. We're super excited for this one, especially Bob, but especially Henry!

It's time for one of the most insider-y episodes of The Simpsons ever, so we had to get some MAJOR guests to help us deconstruct all of it! To help us analyze the kung fu hippie from gansta city, we're joined by Rebecca Sugar, the creator of Steven Universe, Ian Jones-Quartey, creator of OK KO: Let's Be Heroes, and Toby Jonesic episode both does and doesn't reflect the realities of animation showrunning. Not to mention we talk about how this episode reflects own love of The Simpsons and what it's like to experience both sides of creating and enjoying animation! All that plus Rebecca, Ian, and Toby tell behind the scenes tales from Steven Universe and OK KO, an examination of what it means to be proactive, and whenever he's not on the podcast you'll hear us asking "Where's Poochie?"
