The Simpsons animators are the latest in a long line of cartoonists to respond to the tragedy through their artwork.


A new episode of The Simpsons, broadcast last night on the US network Fox, contained an unexpected tribute to the victims of the terrorist attack on the satirical French magazine Charlie Hebdo

The episode, Bart’s Best Friend, was written by the Hollywood director Judd Apatow 25 years ago, after just six episodes of the cartoon had aired.
