    The Simpsons "Gump Roast" Homer, Kang, and Kodos Production Cel on Key Master Background (Fox, 1998). "Now we shall probe you!" It's interesting to note that his "clip show" was written by the voice of Homer, Dan Castellaneta and his wife. It starts as a parody of Forrest Gump, but eventually turns into a Friar's Club roast hosted in part by aliens Kang and Kodos. It was the 17th episode of season 13 and this image appears at the 14:55 mark. The original 12 field 5-cel setup over a hand-painted Key Master cel background was released through Fox Studio's "Collector's Portfolio" program. Following the initial limited release of production art at a New York auction in 1992, The Simpsons Animation Art Program began releasing only 100 one-of-a-kind production setups from the Fox archives each year. The top cel bears a Fox Studio seal in the lower left corner and a matching Certificate of Authenticity with serial number CPBG-85-D2739 is included. It's a magnificent one-of-a-kind Key Master setup featuring the incredibly rare duo of Kang and Kodos in full figure and sporting tuxedos. The character images together measure 11" x 7.5". This is arguably the coolest Simpson cel we have ever seen. The setup shows minor handling and condition is Very Good.
