Fellow Simpsons fans,

I'd like to announce that I have come up with some new story treatments for the show which I think will surely work. I will explain them as follows,

Story One:
This story centers on Bart, which hasn't been done enough in the recent seasons. It is about Bart bonding again with Ned Flanders, something I personally loved in "The Simpsons Movie". In this Bart is signed up to enter a boys biking race, but he can't use his bike because it needs a severe overhaul and besides the rest of his family are too busy to train him, Homer has to fix his car motor, Marge has too many dishes and laundry, Lisa has to study for a test, and Grandpa who is personally against the use of bicycles refuses. Then Ned Flanders offers to train Bart because he reveals that he was champion in school bike races during his childhood so he starts training Bart and he lends him his old childhood bike, an early 60s children's bicycle, which he fixes up and fixes up and repaints and polishes specially for him. As he trains him, Bart starts to worship him like a father which starts to make Homer worried, he then starts acting more fatherly to prove more affection. Meanwhile, Martin and Milhouse are put in charge of the school newspaper and start looking for news, then in the locker hallway they notice Lisa give her friends Janey and Allison a kiss on the cheek. They then start a front page article that Lisa is bi-sexual. I read that notion was hinted in the last season, it seems very interesting and supposedly deserves some exploitation.

Story Two:
This plot centers on Maggie, the infant member of the family. In this story Maggie sees Bart and Lisa fighting every day and starts to wish that she were old enough to speak to them herself and make them get along, she also wishes that she could also try to make her parents get along better as well. That night she looks at a comic book adaption of the Tom Hanks movie "Big" and dreams that she imediately grows into a six year old who speaks clearly in a voice even more smooth and mature than Lisa's (for this Nancy Cartwright who does her occasionally heard voice could use her own natural speaking voice which I think is would fit perfectly). It takes a while for her family to realize it is her, at first Bart thinks Lisa made a clone of herself. Maggie then starts coming between her brother and sister and comes up with ways to prevent big fights between them, and does the same with her parents, before awakening from her dream.

Story Three:
This is a plot to strengthen the bond between Bart and Lisa. Bart suddenly loses his voice because one of the bullies punched him in the neck making his larynx swell and cut off his breathing. He is rushed to the hospital and his windpipe has to be repaired involving tracheostomy, the surgery is successful and the doctors assure his family that once his throat is fully healed his voice will come back as good as ever, but it will take a month or so and he will be unable to speak until then. While recovering, Bart has to wear a neck cast and can hardly even open his mouth. To communicate he resorts to writing his things to say with a pencil and clipboard, it is Lisa who looks after him and using his ledger he makes confessions that he is deeply ashamed of being an underachiever and that he has always worshiped Lisa as his sister. He also admits that lately he has grown to like the sound of her saxophone, he finds it relaxing and it seems to him like her own form of communication and so he wants to become as musical as her and to learn what it is like to be in her shoes. Amazed that her brother really means what he wrote, she agrees and teaches him to be a professional saxophonist, actually study and do the homework he is given and think just like her, she specially lends him the old alto sax that the late Bleeding Gums Murphy left to her. Bart proves successful at playing it, and is even given the musical nickname "Wheezy". When he fully recovers he soon starts pulling pranks again, this imediately breaks Lisa's heart. Bart later realizes it and decides to apologize and thank Lisa. He uses everything what Lisa taught him during the month and prepare a special sax show with other children. He sings a song for Lisa, thanks her for everything and apologizes her. Deeply touched, Lisa forgives him and then they sing and play saxophones together.

Story Four:
This is an idea to bring the Simpsons Clue Game to life. In my plot the Simpsons discover that they have the famous Parker Brothers boardgame clue in their attic. They are interested and decide to play it. As they play they fantasize that they are the characters they play as: Homer as Mr. Green, Bart as Prof. Plum, Marge as Mrs. Peacock, Lisa as Miss Scarlet, Maggie as Mrs. White, with Grampa as Colonel Mustard and Mr. Burns as Mr. Boddy, as they play all of the Springfieldians who pass by stop at their window wondering why they are so focused on a board game all day, however he w. I liked the original Simpsons Clue game and thought it could actually be made into an actual storyline somehow.

I plan to communicate these to the producers, by mail or twitter or someway. I have a feeling they'll find three out of the five doable.

I've also made a list of the best episodes from the first ten seasons, which I call my "Top 50".

Those ideas are really good. Especially your Maggie episode and your Bart and Lisa episode. This show lacks some heart now, characters don't interact that way with eachother anymore. And giving Maggie more personnality than "she's smart for her age" (and have violent tendencies) is also a good idea. Sorry I just read that now, because... Well, if my DA page was a room in real life, it would be filled with cobwebs by now :-)

Does anyone else want to favorite this?

I think these are all wonderful episode proposals! One of the things surely i find lacking in many of the new poorer written episodes, is the family bonding that connected them so humanly in the good part of the series. When Homer and everyone else acts to a certain point completely beyond apathy and sadism, it really feels disjointed and out of character.

I'm not familiar with those words but either way, these story treatments surley won't fail. I plan to send these episodes to one of the showrunners by mail and hope to recieve feedback and/or word that they accept them.

Hi, I am sorry about so late comment. My friend :iconlovehate96: told me about your ideas, so I decided to write you about my opinion:

Story One - Yes, you are right about Bart, he really needs more his own episodes. But to be honest, I don't like the episode "Bart Stops to Smell the Roosevelts" by many reasons. Episodes, where real people appear or are mentioned, are something like commercials. Just look how great these people are! I am sorry, but they aren’t.

Story Two - Great idea! Ned is a very careful father (too careful, I think). Homer is a good father too, but he is just indifferent. Bart noticed it. This episode just needs a scene, where Bart realizes that he needs Homer, in spite of Ned’s care.

Story Three – Another great idea! But how does it end? When everything is alright, Maggie will become a baby again? As for her clothes, yes, blue dress is beautiful, but Maggie is Bart and Lisa in one person and she is sometimes very boyish. I drew her [link] in age two-three years and think she looks better than when she wears dress.

Story four – Well, this is a good idea, but I remember a few episodes which are similar to it and there were always problems. What about this: When Bart fully recovers, he will become a trouble kid again and makes Lisa very sad. Bart later realizes it and decides to apologize and thank Lisa. He uses everything what Lisa learnt him during the month and prepare a special sax show with other children. He sings a song (or songs) for Lisa, thanks her for everything and apologizes her. Lisa forgives him and then they play saxophones together.

Story five – I don't know this game, but it looks like a good idea. But what about this one: the Simpson family decides to change the clue game: they play without a game board and figures. Family uses their own house to play more realistic game than original clue game is. Unfortunately, family slowly links real life with the game and they all start to behave like their characters. It makes many troubles... I inspire of one movie where the same thing happened to one boy. Damn it, I forgot the title again!

So this is my opinion on your ideas. Please tell me, what you think about it. As for „people who don't remember the Simpsons“ I sometimes think I know the Simpsons better than producers. There are so many irregularities in episodes...

I'll try to give my next picture more real background. I can understand if you rather real life people weren't added and think that "Bart Stops to Smell the Roosevelts" wasn't worth the airing. If you like, I'll cancel my first story for you. Anyway, you can be more help by perhaps sketching a few pictures relating to the stories you like most. You don't have to go into detail, just try drawing what you think would look best for what a certain scene would best look. Wish you luck.

No, don't it! There are many people who like this episode.
Really? Okay, I will draw something from your stories.
