Overview

Gather round for some high-spirited and fortune-filled fables when Matt Groening, the creator of The Simpsons, takes on the world's most beloved literary classics! Mount Olympus will never be the same when Homer presents The Iliad and Ned Flanders takes a turn as Aesop. Then, in a tale of biblical proportions, Bart meets the most famous underachiever of all time, the Prodigal Son, and Abraham Simpson finds it is not so easy to keep a covenant with God when you have a son like Homer. Next, Marge is Persian princess Scheherazade, who must impress the impulsive King Moe-mar Shahryar every night with a story in order to save her own neck. Then, Bart does the Bard, man, when the students of Springfield Elementary perform, measure by measure, virtually every one of William Shakespeare's plays in one midsummer night. Finally, Lisa attempts to win over Rod and Todd Flanders with the lovely and endearing Danish fairy tales of Hans Christian Andersen.
