Hour-long "Simpsons" mockumentary on "Homer at the Bat" to debut Sunday

Hour-long

Believe it or not, it's been 25 years since that episode first aired, and The Simpsons is going above and beyond to celebrate its anniversary.

The project is entitled "Springfield of Dreams: The Legend of Homer Simpson", and as you can see from the clip above, it's got it all - from interviews with eight of the original Springfield ringers to appearances by Aaron Judge, Nick Offerman and some of your favorite recurring Simpsons characters. The special airs just ahead of Fox's broadcast coverage of the 2017 World Series starting October 24; this is the network's 20th year televising MLB's Fall Classic. Today, season 3's "Homer at the Bat" stands as a classic installment of The Simpsons, one that helped to usher in the golden age of the animated Fox comedy.

Mayor Bill de Blasio, a devoted Red Sox fan, will also be featured in the documentary according to Fox.

Morgan Spurlock of Super Size Me fame is directing the documentary, which will focus on how the Springfield nuclear power plant beat Shelbyville thanks to Homer's heroics (by getting hit in the head).

"We're glad Morgan is unusual enough to take this on", said James L. Brooks, The Simpsons executive producer, of Spurlock's involvement as director. "A special so special that it not only celebrates Springfieldian Homer Simpson, but one that reminds us all, that maybe if we tried a little less, great things can happen". That will be approximately at 3 p.m. ET (for markets with an National Football League game at 4:05 p.m. ET) and at 4:30 p.m. ET (for markets with an National Football League game at 1 p.m. ET).

"Homer at the Bat", an episode of "The Simpsons" that has been enshrined in the Baseball Hall of Fame and featured names like Ken Griffey Jr., Roger Clemens and Wade Boggs aired February 20, 1992.
