Sunday night, May 20th, the Simpsons will air their 400th and season finale episode. Called “24 Minutes”, this event will be done in 24 style complete with multi frames and nerve-wracking ticking. Guest stars Kiefer Sutherland and Mary Lynn Rajskub will play their Monday night alter egos, Jack Bauer and Chloe O’Brian.

Seems like Springfield Elementary has set up a CTU of its own. Yes the educational mecca of Springfield for lo these last 18 seasons now runs a Counter Truancy Unit, manned by CTU agents Bart and Lisa Simpson. Set up by Principal Skinner, the CTU faces uncertain times as rumors of a stink bomb to be detonated during a school bake sale has everyone on edge. Or, as “on-edge” as a cartoon character could be.

Now, Jack and Chloe will just play themselves; but naturally, one might guess which CTU staffer, White House worker, or Terrorist du jour would be portrayed by the rest of the happy Springfield town folk. Though I doubt they’ll go that route, it’s a fun idea to play with – so here are some of my offerings:

  • Jack Bauer — Bart Simpson
  • Chloe O’Brian — Lisa Simpson
  • Vice President Daniels — Chief Wiggum
  • Tom Lennox — Waylon Smithers
  • President Wayne Palmer — Carl Carlson
  • Bill Buchanan — Principal Seymour Skinner
  • Karen Hayes — Edna Krabappel
  • Terri Bauer  — Maude Flanders
  • Kim Bauer — Christian Charity
  • Phillip Bauer — Montgomery Burns
  • Graem Bauer — Krusty the Clown
  • Josh Bauer  — Milhouse Van Houten
  • Mike Doyle — Groundskeeper Willy
  • Milo Pressman — Apu Nahasapeemapetilon
  • Morris O’Brian — Dr. Julius Hibbert
  • Edgar Stiles — Comic Book Guy
  • Cheng Zhi — The Great Humungous
  • Any Fox News Reporter — Kent Brockman
  • Nina Meyers — Patty Bouvier
  • TAC Team — Rod and Tod Flanders
  • Audrey Raines — Marge Simpson
  • Erin Driscoll — Judge Constance Harm
  • Ex President Logan — Sideshow Bob
  • Former Sec-Def Heller — Mayor Quimby
  • Assorted Goons & Hostiles — Kang and Kodos

These pairings could be rearranged all sorts of ways, what would your ideal portrayals be? And while you are mentally re-writing the scripts for both 24 and The Simpsons, don’t forget to tune in to Fox on the 20th to see how it all goes down.

    I love the idea of this spoof, MK. And your casting is just perfect. My favorite: Krusty as Graem. Talk about type casting!

    In case anyone noticed, the episodes aired in reverse of what I reported. And I’m not sure why, but I’m sure we all figured it out just fine – but still – sorry about the confusion : _
