Fear not, Homer will continue to choke Bart on The Simpsons

In the session McMansion & his wifewhich began on October 22, Homer shakes the hand of his new neighbor, who says that “very grip” when they shook hands. “Behold, Mary, strangling the boy upon payment,” Homer said to his wife. “Just kidding, I don’t do that anymore. Times have changed.“
This made fans believe that The Simpsons to stop the “goga” that had existed for a long time with some praising the work and others criticizing it. However, series co-creator and producer James L. Brooks told People that nothing has changed with the series. “Don’t think for a second that we’re changing anything,” said Brooks. “Nothing gets boring. Nothing, nothing, nothing.

However, fans have noticed that Homer didn’t stop Bart The Simpsons for several years, with the final issue taking place during the show’s 31st season.
