Check Out Cartoon Versions of McCartney, Jagger, Elton and Other Music Stars During "Simpsons" Marathon
The longest marathon in television history is now under way, as FXX continues airing all 25 seasons of The Simpsons chronologically. In the history of the show, a whole lot of famous music artists made appearances -- in cartoon form -- in Springfield, and you still have time to catch many of them before the marathon ends on Labor Day, September 1.
By Saturday morning the marathon will have reached the middle of Season Five, which means you will be able to watch animated performances by Paul & Linda McCartney, James Taylor, Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, Elton John, The Who, Bachman-Turner Overdrive and many others.
