What the heckarooney is this?! 3 nerds and a girl with a love for America's favorite non-prehistoric animated family tackle the music of the most successful animated show of all time by interpreting the best of the shows 20+ years of music, including favorites like "Baby on Board," "Oh Streetcar!" "Monorail", "See My Vest" and "We Put the Spring in Springfield."
Michael Price, a producer and writer for The Simpsons, applauds the show with a quote taken right from the series itself. "This show is a MUST for the serious Simpson's fan. I heartily endorse this event or product."
The Simpsons was the first successful animated program in American prime time since Wait Till Your Father Gets Home in the 1970s. Created by Matt Groening for the Fox Broadcasting Company, it is the longest-running American sitcom, the longest-running American animated program, and in 2009 it surpassed Gunsmoke as the longest-running American primetime, scripted television series.

Their love of musical theatre, beer and The Simpsons has resulted in a lifelong obsession with the music from the animated hit.
