EP 618 - A Star is Burns

Springfield's popularity rating is at an all time low. Marge suggests that Springfield hold a Film Festival so more tourists will visit. The Film Festival will have one winner. Marge needs a judge for the film festival so she calls a famous film critic named Jay Sherman.


  • This is the first episode that featured a crossover from one cartoon to another. The Critic or Jay Sherman was created by Simpsons Executive Producers Al Jean and Mike Reiss. Matt Groening was so upset about this cross over that he took his name off the entire episode.
