Confirmed, Michael Jackson effectively lent his voice in a chapter of The Simpsons!
At present, there is an infinity of television series with the most diverse themes. However, none of them is like the longest-running animated series that has been around for over three decades! We are talking about the most famous family of yellow beings, loved and acclaimed by the public, The Simpsons. There are hundreds of celebrities who have had a cameo in each chapter, lending their well-known voices for production. However, there was a star that fans had always been in doubt whether it was actually he who lent his voice to a character, or not. That artist, is our legend, Michael Jackson, and in this article, we will clear all your doubts!
The animated series was first aired on December 17, 1987. Its beginning was complicated because, due to its irreverent dialogues and its controversial characters, they did not become a major hit right away!
Especially the most conservative were those who from the beginning criticized the program, labeling it as a bad influence for the children who watched it.
However, those of us who have had the privilege of following closely the trajectory of this iconic series, know that it is not precisely a production created for children.
In fact, the humor is even complicated to be understood by the adult public. There are many detractors even today.
But, to the surprise of everyone, even the creators of the famous animated series, the success came almost instantaneously when the themes of the chapters identified their audience with the program.
And, it must be said, The Simpsons are a satire of the middle class of American society. However, their jokes and mockeries can also be applied to people from other over the world!
Therefore the success of the series was not only local but moved to almost all of Latin America, Europe and other regions of the world. Nowadays they have a great international presence.
They are currently in the season 29, about to premiere the 30. However, despite still being around, their more faithful fans believe that the series has stopped being fun.
It is for this reason that every time you have the opportunity to talk about classic episodes, the big fans of the series take the opportunity to remember and test their knowledge about their favorite program.
This time it was the return of the first chapter of the third season. But what is special about this one in particular? Well, almost nothing, only that on that occasion allegedly Michael Jackson was visiting the recording set!
The fans of the funniest family in Springfield know exactly which chapter we are referring to, but for those of you who have no idea what we are talking about, we are going to explain it a little bit more.
It was the summer of 1991 and the King of Pop was in full swing. Therefore, the sensational series decided to dedicate a complete chapter to this person.
The episode told how Homer was transferred to a mental health clinic for having dared to wear a shirt dyed pink because Bart started to wash his red lucky cap along with her and it faded.
At the hospital, Homer met Leon Kompowsky, a supposed mental patient with a fairly explosive temperament, but who became a docile sheep when he imitated Michael Jackson.
But, not only imitated the King of Pop but in fact, Kompowsky believed he was the very pop star. So much so that even the alleged Michael visited the house of The Simpsons.
Not only that, but he even helped Bart write a song to his sister after he broke her heart by not giving her anything on her birthday.
The question about this topic had always been Whether it was actually the iconic pop star who lent his voice to the character of Kompowsky or not?!. The doubt continued until today.
It was in an emission of the well-known program "The Week" that the very same Matt Groening, creator of The Simpsons, cleared all the unknowns and affirmed that, in fact, there was no one other than the King of Pop who gave the character life.
As we can see, even when it seems that the most famous animated family of the last three decades has no more to tell us, it still surprises us with news like this!
