"Nebraska" New York Special Screening - After Party

One of The Simpsons last remaining mysteries is about to be solved, and Saturday Night Live’s Will Forte is right at the center of it.

At last night’s Critics Choice Television Awards, Simpsons exec producer Matt Selman revealed exclusively to TVLine that Forte will guest star in the upcoming 26th season as the eponymous — and never-before-seen — owner of King Toot’s Music Store.

King Toot's Music StoreKing Toot’s, of course, is located next door to Moe’s Tavern and, according to Selman, the two local businessmen have a strained relationship. Teases the EP: “Do they get along? I don’t think so.”

Forte’s episode is slated to air in November. He’s also set to star in the new Fox sitcom Last Man on Earth.

    Didn’t homer buy a reed for Lisa sax from him in season 1 or 2

      Season 3, Episode 8- “Lisa’s Pony”
      It’s all been done before at this point, though.

    • alistaircrane says:

      But was it the owner or one of his employees? It’s also possible Forte’s character bought the store from the owner, if that’s who it was, from Lisa’s Pony.

      • Laura says:

        I had to look it up, but he *did* tell Homer he owned the music store.

        Simpsons history is so fluid, though (since no one ages), that, even if they’ve forgotten we’ve met this guy before, it doesn’t really bother me too much.

    • Tom says:

      Yes, his name is Jerry and Moe even saved Jerry and his Wife when they were trapped in a burning car.

    ” — and never-before-seen — owner of King Toot’s Music Store”, believe we met the store owner when Homer bought Lisa a pony. He failed to obtain a saxophone reed in time for Lisa’s talent show after insulting the owner of the store. I assume there is a good chance current Simpsons writers have never seen this classic episode either.

  3. Sarah says:

    Uhh. Yeah.. except that he HAS been seen before.. Next ! :)

  4. bill says:

    Correction needed Ausiello and Selman. He was seen and talked in the Season 9 episode Lisa’s Sax. Classic origin story of how Lisa got her saxophone.

  5. Eric says:

    The owner. Of king toots has been seen once when homer needed a part. For. Lisa’s. Saxophone. And. Got drunk at moes and had to beg the guy to let him in

  6. Bill says:

    What about Lisa’s pony? I thought he made an appearance in that episode.

  7. Josh Kyle says:

    there was in one episode an owner of King Toot’s Homer had to convince him to open it back up to get Lisa a Saxophone reed

  8. Karen says:

    Whoever is in charge of continuity should be fired …. We’ve met this character before.

  9. reecious says:

    Moe: Come on, Jer, open up, be a pal. Remember when I pulled you and your
    wife out of that burning car?
    Jerry: Well, okay, okay. But now we’re even.
