    Does *any* animation do it this way? (Except perhaps what I would suspect are very rare looping/redubbing.)

    Fox is airing the Edna-focused "Bart the Lover" episode of The Simpsons on 11/3 at 7:30/6:30c.

    Not in my region. :( (Prior to 7PM on Sundays with no NFL scheduled, the affiliates get to choose their programming)

    Shame. That's a classic ep and, I think, Wallace won an Emmy for it.

    During the Match Game episode they had a quick tribute card to her. It read "To our friend Marcia Wallace, may you rest in <blank>.

    No "Bart the Lover". It was in the guide but instead they re-ran the episode where Ned and Edna got together. That was disappointing -- I was looking forward to seeing "Bart the Lover" again.

    Reports are that Fox had last-minute issues getting the rights to air "Bart the Lover." (Seems odd, but weird things can happen when syndication rights are involved.)

    Episode that aired for me was something with Mr. Burns looking for a long lost love, Kent Brockman and Rachel Maddow, and Bart flying around in a basket tied to balloons.

    The end had a card for Mrs. K. With her trademark "Ha!". When the recording started, the open was already to a [lengthy] couch gag.

    The one that was "missing" ("Bart the Lover") was supposed to be on at 7:30 EST. What you're describing is the (expected) new episode.

    I read that, too. Still disappointed; I was looking forward to seeing that one again.

    It wouldn't be the first time; right after Michael Jackson died, Fox wanted to air the episode he was in, but it took so long to get the rights out of syndication that they had to wait another week before airing it.

    What I don't understand is, if they couldn't get the rights to "Bart the Lover," how did they get the rights to "The Ned-liest Catch"? (The only thing I can think of is, "Bart the Lover" is on DVD while "The Ned-liest Catch" is not, and won't be for a few more years.)
