Sideshow Bob started his quest to kill Bart some years ago (In 1990, to be accurate) and he has tried it an uncountable number of times. This fall, he will finally fulfill his lifetime ambition. He will actually kill Bart Simpson. This plot will be one of the segments of this year’s Treehouse of Horror (XXVI). The plot of segment will be that Bob kills Bart and then won’t know what to do with himself after his life’s mission has been accomplished.
The Simpsons‘ showrunner Al Jean told it while at their ATX Festival panel in Austin, Texas, on Saturday. Jean said he always wanted to see the Coyote get the Road Runner in Looney Tunes. So Bob will actually execute Bart.
Remember that this episode (“Treehouse of Horror XXVI“) is a Treehouse of Horror episode, so it will be a “non-canon” episode, which means that the events in the episode don’t take place in The Simpsons‘ timeline, so Bart will be back just after the segment ends.
