What's new in the world of Bongo?

Countdown to laughter… Bart Simpson will send you over the moon with high-octane hilarity as he leads the Springfield Elementary team to the state eating competition, does his best not to embarrass Marge on Mother’s Day, learns a Kwik-E life lesson from Apu, gets a little bedtime assistance from Maggie, bonds with Grampa over a junky jalopy, and foils Mr. Burns' plan to sidestep Springfield’s child labor laws. Then, Lisa gets some surprising competition as she squares off against Bart in a contest to win a prized pony, teenagers Homer and Barney encounter zombies, and much, much more!  It’s a supersonic, supercharged, Bart Simpson shebang!

Ever need a place where you can find a sympathetic ear, get some friendly advice, and perhaps share an evening with friends while enjoying a lovingly prepared libation…or do you just end up at Moe’s Tavern? Well, there’s a new mixologist in town, Ned Flanders, and he’s serving up a fermented microbrew that may very well foment an unfortunate face-off. Enter Homer Simpson, who finds himself in the middle of it all—between a PO’d Moe and his holier-than-everyone else neighborino.

When SpongeBob's most awesome feats of fry-cookery fail to impress Mr. Krabs, the desperate sponge resorts to forbidden experiments to push himself up the short-order evolutionary ladder. Behold the all-encompassing kitchen power of…"FryCook 2.0."

All this plus aquatic comics by Stephen DeStefano, Maris Wicks, Joey Weiser, and more!

Mr. Burns takes the Simpsons along on his annual summer vacation treasure hunt, but his South Seas adventure soon becomes a matter of life and death for everyone concerned. “Uncle Burn$” lust for gold leads them all to the island of Donrosa and the Gottfredson trench where the Simpsons begin to realize that there is something Huey, Dewey, and Screwy about this whole undertaking, and that they might be “Barks”ing up the wrong tree! Then Maggie and Moe take a trip to Wall E. Weasel’s, stumble into a plot of international intrigue, and come face to face with another crime-solving babysitting duo––Gerald, the one-eyebrowed baby, and Titania! Finally, Ralph gets mistaken for a prized pig at the Springfield county fair.

In order to earn enough money for some tickets to a professional wrestling match, Bart gets a job at the Kwik-E-Mart. And then, in order to put food on the table, Otto the Bus Driver offers his own services (as well as the Springfield Elementary bus) as an “Uber”-type driver. Plus, Ralph explores his love of nature.

After a run-in with the paparazzi, Krusty the Clown hires Homer to stand in for him, or rather, stand next to him…because Homer makes Krusty look good by comparison. Meanwhile, Lisa becomes a stand-in studio musician for Bleeding Gums Murphy’s sister, Flossy Murphy. But Homer and Lisa soon discover that the life of a second-hand, stopgap, stand-in celebrity isn’t all it’s cracked up to be.
