KAREEM ABDUL-JABBAR

  • I play myself on this episode…
  • This is my first time doing VO work…
  • I'm backing up someone who's trying to discipline homer…
  • I was a fan of Matt's before he was on TV…
  • My fave character is Crusty the Clown…
  • Recording this was pretty easy…
  • It's a lot of fun to do some comedy…
  • I'm not expecting much in terms of how my character will look…
  • I would like to do this again…
  • The recording itself was not surprising…

 

When Homer inadvertently humiliates Bart in front of a stadium crowd, Marge encourages Homer to enroll in a fathering enrichment class taught by therapist Dr. Zander (guest voice Rudd). Shocked to learn that Homer often strangles Bart for mischievous behavior, Dr. Zander conducts a series of treatments with the help of Kareem Abdul-Jabbar (guest-voicing as himself) to teach Homer what it feels like to be young and small.

But when Bart learns that the therapy sessions have transformed Homer into a pushover, he takes advantage of Homer and becomes a school bully. Hoping therapy could also cure Bart of his bullying habits, Marge enlists Dr. Zander’s help to patch their relationship in the all-new “Love Is a Many Strangled Thing” episode of THE SIMPSONS airing Sunday, March 27 (8:00-8:30 PM) on FOX 50.
