Last night’s episode ("Stealing First Base") of Fox’s long-running animated comedy The Simpsons contained a brief reference to the new Star Trek movie. Watch the video below, plus another poignant classic Simpsons/Trek moment.
Star Trek Kiss in Simpsons
"Stealing First Base" was all about Bart dealing with matters of the heart with a new girl at school. This culminated in a fateful kiss, which launched a montage of famous movie kisses, including one from Star Trek, watch it. (via Hulu, sorry USA only)
While not as common as the Trek gags on Family Guy, The Simpsons has its share of final frontier funnies over the years. With all the talk about Klingons in the 2012 Star Trek sequel (the 12th Trek film), this classic gag from the fourth season episode "Itchy & Scratchy: The Movie" in 1992 seems prescient.
