    Idea: An episode without The Simpsons

    Okay, I just thought of an idea for an episode: an episode where the main family doesn’t appear at all. The family would have no lines or notable moments at all. They would still technically be in the episode, just they would be punted to the background while the supporting characters take the focus instead. The episode would be a lot like 22 Short Films in Springfield, with a bunch of different stories and all.
    ah (as in apple)-tuh-eef

    Could be interesting.
    You're a dolt with the IQ of a peabrain that probably loves lowbrow sitcoms like The Big Bang Theory, Frasier and Seinfeld to not grasp the biting satire and wit of the classic 65 (Rugrats).

    Indeed. Maybe they could do it like the Ace Attorney Investigations where the usual protagonists (Pheonix Wright, Maya and Pearl) are just a background cameo none of the other characters notice.

    Are the Springfield characters allowed to mention the Simpsons?.. An Episode where everones talking about something they did,.. and pointing out the visual remnants left behind from an encounter with them..?

    at this point I'm down for pretty much anything. I've noticed that a lot of the newer episodes I've been watching have been gimmicky(like the family guy/futurama crossovers) or ones that seem popular, like the recently aired barthood

    Seems like a noble experiment.

    Can this episode be called Slice of Life and only feature The Simpson family at the very end of the episode where they commiserate about how lucky they are to live in Springfield and they get together for a big group hug?

    Since Road to Cincinatti has been made, it's the closest thing.
