Dead Bart

Dead Bart is a creepypasta story about a lost episode of The Simpsons that is rumored to exist.

Dead Bart

When they began airing The Simpsons TV show, Fox had a strange way of numbering each episode. There are a few unexplained gaps in the numbering and the TV station refuses to explain why. The reason for this is that there was a lost episode in Season 1. From what has been pieced together, the episode’s production number was 7G06, the title was “Dead Bart”.

Finding any details about this missing episode is extremely difficult, None of the staff who were working on the show at the time will discuss it. The lost episode was written entirely by Matt Groening, the creator of the TV show. During production of the first season, they say that Matt Groening began to act very strangely. He became unusually quiet, nervous and withdrawn.

The episode labeled 7G06, Moaning Lisa, was made later and given Dead Bart’s production code to hide the latter’s existence.

When anyone involved with The Simpsons was asked about this, they suddenly became extremely angry and refused to talk about it. They even went so far as to forbid anyone from communicating directly with Matt Groening.

In fact, when the show’s producer was giving a presentation at an event, someone in the crowd asked about the rumored lost episode. The producer immediately walked off the stage, ending the question and answer session half-way through.

A few years ago, I was attending a fan convention where Matt Groening was invited to speak to the crowd. After the event, I managed to follow him backstage and had a chance to talk to him alone, just as he was about to leave. When I happened to mention the lost episode, all color suddenly drained from his face and he began to tremble.

I pressed him for details, but he sounded like he was on the verge of tears. He quickly grabbed a piece of paper, scribbled something on it, and thrust it into my hand. After begging me never to mention the lost episode again, he rushed out of the building.

Looking down at the piece of paper I was holding, I noticed that it had a website address on it. When I got home, I typed the URL into my browser, and it brought me to a Website that was completely black, except for a single link.

As soon as I clicked on the link, a video file started downloading. When I clicked Play, I realized it was an episode of The Simpsons. The title of the file was “Dead Bart”.

The episode started off like any other, but the quality of the animation was noticably poor. The first half of the episode was pretty normal, but the way the characters behaved was a very odd. Homer seemed much more angry than usual, Marge just looked incredibly depressed and Lisa seemed stressed out and nervous. The most disturbing thing was that Bart seemed to be seething with anger and hatred for his parents.

The plot of the episode involved the Simpsons going on a holiday. The plane was taking off and Bart was fooling around, as usual. However, when the plane was about 50 feet off the ground, Bart broke a window and was suddenly sucked out. The next scene showed Bart’s dead body lying on the airport runway. He was barely recognizable and the animation showed an almost photo-realistic drawing of his twisted and mangled corpse.

The second half began with Homer, Marge and Lisa sitting around their kitchen table, sobing and crying. As the crying went on and on, it became more pained and more realistic. The animation started to decay and you could hear strange murmuring in the background. The characters could barely be made out. The screen was stretching and blurring, making them look like deformed shadows with random bright colors thrown on them. There were also faces looking in the window, flashing in and out so you were never sure what they looked like.

This unnerving sobbing and crying went on for almost the entire second half. Towards the end, a title card appeared, reading “One Year Later”. Homer, Marge and Lisa were still sitting at the kitchen table, but now they were shockingly thin. They looked almost like skeletons and there was no sign of Maggie or the pets.

Homer, Marge and Lisa decided to visit Bart’s grave. Springfield was completely deserted and, as they walked towards the cemetery, all of the other houses seemed to be crumbling and abandoned. When they finally reached the grave, Bart’s body was just lying in front of his tombstone, looking just like it did before.

The Simpsons just stood there, staring at Bart’s bloody corpse. The camera zoomed in on Homer’s face and his mouth began moving, but you couldn’t hear what he was saying. The camera zoomed out again and the episode came to a close. There were no credits. The camera just lingered on the tombstones in the background. Each tombstone had the name of every Simpsons guest star engraved on it. Some that no one had heard of in 1989, some that haven’t even been on the show yet. All of the names had a date of death engraved next to them.

For guests who have died since then, like Michael Jackson and George Harrison, the dates of their death were exactly correct. The final image was of the entire Simpson family sitting on their couch, their bodies mangled and lifeless. All of this was drawn in the same hyper-realistic style that had been used on Bart’s corpse.

When the episode finished, a thought suddenly occurred to me. You could try to use the tombstones to predict the death of people who have guest-starred on the Simpsons who are still alive.

However, there was something very odd about most of the guest stars who haven’t died yet.

All of their deaths are listed as the same date.


  • And now, four years later, the producers have scheduled Bart’s actual death. So that’s that, I guess

  • Is it True or just a story…
    its really creepy, and the date of deaths were exactly correct…wooo
    well its very scary to read about them in this situation,I don’t wanna see that episode…!!! NEVER.. !!!!!

  • But why did they drag Micheal jackson into this……… I don’t think they predicted all this……
    I am very angry with this story! Although i could’nt get the last 4 paragraphs.

  • Omg that’s crazy especially the squidward one iwonder wat is happening icant believe someone or something is actually doing that:o

    Do worry If it didn’t happen for May or October then December isn’t true either.

  • I believe that parts of this story are true, but other parts were added in to make it entertaining. And as for the 12/21/12 jazz, don’t worry. Most historians agree that the Mayans didn’t precict the apocolypse. I’m pretty sure they just ran out of whatever they were using to construct their calendars.

  • Yikes. Why are there all these malfunctions with TV shows and movies? There’s even one of the Wizard Of Oz!

  • I’m guessing the date that all of the guests who haven’t died yet will die is on 12/21/2012. Not that I actually believe in the apocalypse, but just saying…

  • if this is real, then whats the website you went to? this story just so happened to catch my attention. im interested in this issue everyone has about the episode.

  • @hiccups-
    “John… John… John…?”
    “What are you messing around with that boat for? We’ve got a car waiting!” xD I love hard Day’s Night! I had it but I had to get rid of it ;A;
    Why is it that the pictures are scarier than the actual story?

  • squidwards suicide was creepier……well i guess this one is weirder because of the tombs, but idk….

  • Holy f*cking sh*t
    Does tht mean tht the producer or whoever wrote it is some type of creepy phsycic? Does it mean he’s just some creepy killer and he killed them all on tht date and is going to destroy everyone on that show

  • So for the ones that end on the same date…does that mean that this show could predict the end of the world? or at least the date of some terrible disaster?

  • Yaay, you credited CreepyPasta :D Even on the Squidward’s Suicide one, I see ^-^

  • Georgie!! * cries out eyes * why did my little George have to die

    Brittania brittania, brittania rules the * SPLASH * -John Lennon a hard days night the movie!!

    It’s a thingy! A FIENDISH THINGY- George Harrison

  • coooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooool
