Say it ain’t d’oh!
“Well, from what I’ve heard, it is coming to end,” Elfman, who wrote the show’s hit theme music in 1989, told website Joe.ie. “I don’t know for a fact, but I’ve heard that it will be in its last year.”
However after the previous Oingo Boingo frontman’s feedback made headlines, Al Jean, the present’s govt producer, mentioned it was “not true.”
“We are all thankful the following article is NOT TRUE,” Jean tweeted.
“Ay caramba!” one fan replied. “Thank you dude. I did not even dare to click the link when I saw it earlier this evening … It should not be true.”
The longest-running primetime scripted present in tv historical past was renewed for an unprecedented 31st and 32nd seasons in February, Deadline reported.
The renewal would hold the animated collection on air by the 2020-2011 season with a document of 713 episodes.
In his interview, Elfman, mentioned he was stunned by the present’s success.
“All I can say is that I’m flabbergasted and amazed that it has lasted as long as it did,” Elfman mentioned.
“So, you have to realize, when I scored The Simpsons, I wrote this crazy piece of music, and I expected no one would hear it because I really did not think the show had a chance in hell.”
Elfman thought the present could be canceled after three episodes, he mentioned.
“So believe me, that is one of the truly big surprises in my life,” Elfman mentioned of the present’s lasting affect.
