Drew Taylor & Jim Hill start off this week’s episode by revealing how longtime “Simpsons” showrunner Al Jean would like to bring that animated series to a close. They also talked about which studios Disney vets Ron Clements & John Musker wound up directing a new animated feature for.


Over the course of this episode, listeners will learn about:

Which DreamWorks Animation production stands in the way of Disney’s “Encanto” becoming the top-grossing animated feature released in North America during calendar 2021

What did Apple TV+ do to guarantee that Peanuts fans will still get to see “A Charlie Brown Christmas” this year even if they don’t subscribe to that streaming service

How many years beyond 2023 will “The Simpsons” have to stay in production if that animated series is to ultimately churn out 1000 episodes

What “Mitchells vs. The Machines” Easter Egg can be found in Miles’ bedroom in the teaser trailer for “Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse”

How is the Walt Disney Company now tied to the creation of “South Park,” the Peabody Award-winning animated series which has aired on Comedy Central since August 1997
