How 'The Simpsons Convinced Disney to let Goofy and Homer drink a Beer together

As soon as Disney was tapped by The Simpsons to produce Disney Plus, executive producer Al Jean said the idea was born to cram as many of the company's franchise characters into Moes Tavern.

Among the Disney-themed movies, the movie The Simpsons in a Special Edition premieres on Disney Plus. In the new short, if you wish to visit Moes, you can visit the MM, who had slammed the film and threw otter and put it on the screen.

In comparison to the list of the most famous people, Homer has trouble entering Moes, since he is not on the stand-off list, such as Jeff Goldblum, Dopey, Ant-Man, Darth Sidious, Pinocchio, Aaron Burr Jabba the Hutt, Loki, Thanos and More. You dont seem to be one of us, says Maleficent, looking at a page on her tablet that includes Pixar, ABC, F

The Simpsons doesn't have its own brand tile on Disney Plus, the same as Marvel, Star Wars and Nat Geo have.

When you look at what's trending on Disney Plus, we are usually number one (Fleets the Simpsons, Cynicism. The Simpson has seen the Madonna, a point where you see the guest list and the basis is they have tiles, and we don't, so please, after two years, give us our tile! On Disney and if you think of whats happening, you can always pick the Top-up

One of our writers, Loni Sosthand, proposed that Homer befriend Goofy, and the two begin pounding pints of Duff beer in the bar. So we wanted to be edgy and have fun on a Disney Plus Day.

Disney characters were not allowed to be depicted in the short. For starters, Mickey Mouse was off limits.

We have Bart playing Mickey and telling everyone to get back to work.

Besides that, Jean said, "they said - which I completely agree with they didn't want anyone who is a role model for young children like Belle to be drinking". And beyond that according to Jean, they said they did not want anybody who was able to do the drink for short kids like them.

In Goofy's case, the character has been depicted as an adult male in the past, with a kid in which he can enjoy the Duffs with Homer.

The shows regular voice actors include Dan Castellaneta voiced Donald Duck, Hank Azaria was Goofy and Tress MacNeille was Maleficent. And when it came time for Bart to impersonate Mickey Mouse, Nancy [Cartwright] does a great Mickey laugh, Jean said. I thought they all nailed it.

We tried to put around little Easter eggs like that throughout, Jean said.

The short is BB8, who is now Maggie's best friend from the first short. "We had the dwarves, who are very rare," he said. We were talking about doing a short with all the silent characters, Maggie, BG8, Dopey, like us.

The Simpsons was the third in a series of Disney Plus shorts from the Susaversary series, following Maggie Simpson in The Force Awakens From Its Nap and The Good, The Bart or La Loki. In October, the Simpson produced ten minutes short for Balenciaga in Paris.

The Simpsons movie was like a 10-minute episode, Jean said. So its rebirth of us.

Next up, Jean teased that the Simpsons is working on a Spanish-only short that will not be for Disney Plus but he wont say much more about that: The characters that appear with the characters are Spanish and all the dialogue is in Spanish, but I yeah, I can't speak too much.

I love doing them so you know we want to do more. I am not saying we're doing it. Were a little too big and then 'Obi Wan'. So we arent late for the Boba Fett, which I think would have been cool. But I like doing these so I know that we wanted more?
