Trailer: 'Mythbusters' take on 'The Simpsons'

Posted on


What does it look like when Discovery’s Mythbusters gang takes on an iconic animated series? Below is the first preview of Adam Savage and Jamie Hyneman exploring stories from Fox’s The Simpsons. Experiments include seeing whether Bart dropping a cherry bomb into his school’s toilet would really cause all of them to explode and determining whether Homer holding onto a wrecking ball could really help prevent his house from being severely damaged. For more on the new season, see our deep-dive Q&A with Savage.

Note: The Simpsons stunt footage starts about a minute into the video after some preview from the rest of the new season—including its A-Team episode—which gets underway on Saturday.
