Airing on TEN on Sunday 17 February, Maggie Simpson in “The Longest Daycare” was originally created by The Simpsons team as a gift to their loyal fan base. Now the four-minute short is a strong contender in the Best Animated Short Film category for this year’s Academy Awards.
In a classic battle of good versus evil, Maggie Simpson in “The Longest Daycare” follows Maggie on a silent crusade to save an innocent butterfly from the clutches of her arch-nemesis Baby Gerald.
The Simpsons showrunner Al Jean told Entertainment Weekly that it is “hard to do a 20-minute Maggie episode, but in four minutes it’s great. She’s like Charlie Chaplin.”
Sunday 17 February at 6.25pm on TEN.
