Simpsons opening ninja Bart skating Peeping Mom Apu Moe Comic Book Guy Disco Stu

Bart Simpson is forever writing new chalkboard punishments yet he always sees the same people as he skates through Springfield. This isn’t by happenstance reveals this week’s Simpsons episode “Peeping Mom.” The residents apparently stand in front of Moe’s Tavern waiting for Bart to skate past them each week.

“Well, the kid passed through again. We can all go inside,” Moe (Hank Azaria) tells the other human props as they exit until they’re needed again.

There have been previous hints that this isn’t stock footage. The pedestrians donned festive clothing in the Christmas episode “White Christmas Blues.”

The Simpsons airs Sunday 8PM on Fox.
