The Simpsons Season 24 Premiere Preview: New Girl’s Zooey Deschanel Sings An Ode To Bart [Video]

The Simpsons

New Girl‘s Zooey Deschanel will be lending her quirky charms to a different Fox show this Sunday when she pops up on the 24th season premiere of The Simpsons as Bart’s former love Mary Spuckler (Deschanel previously voiced the character way back in season 19). Bart will reunite with Mary while he and the rest of the Simpsons clan are visiting New York City.

We have a clip from their reunion below. In it, Deschanel gets to put her singing chops to good use as she serenades Bart with a soulful country tune that makes it clear she still likes the troublemaker…and his “cylinder head.”

Season 24 of The Simpsons premieres Sept. 30 at 8:00 p. m. ET/PT on Fox.
