Episode Info

Rather than participate in a litter-cleanup program sponsored by the Springfield Nuclear Power Plant, Homer Simpson (voice of Dan Castellaneta) decides to fake his own death so he can spend his weekend loafing in a hammock. Marge (voice of Julie Kavner), however, doesn't think much of Homer's little scam, and orders him to inform the authorities that they've issued a death certificate to a man who's still alive. However, while ironing out the paperwork, Homer learns his mother is still alive and wanted by the law, even though Grampa (also voiced by Castellaneta) told him years ago she'd passed on. Homer finds his Mother (voice of Glenn Close) visiting his grave, and discovers she's been a fugitive for close to 20 years. After being immediately radicalized by the sight of Joe Namath's sideburns, Mother went back to college and fell in with a group of revolutionary activists who destroyed a germ warfare lab sponsored by C. Montgomery Burns (voice of Harry Shearer) with powerful antibiotic gas. Mother soon discovers Burns hasn't forgotten what she did, and she quickly finds herself being hounded by the Springfield police once again. "Mother Simpson" first aired on November 19, 1995.
