Voices on The Simpsons

In-Joke in "Apocalypse Cow"

In the "Apocalypse Cow" episode of The Simpsons, which originally aired on April 27, 2008, Bart raises a prize-winning calf named Lou that is destined to be slaughtered. He agonizes over this and believes he can hear Lou calling to him. When Bart discovers that the noises he was hearing were coming from a CD player planted under his bed by Lisa, not from Lou, he exclaims, "Anguished Animals III? That wasn't my conscience mooing, it was...Tress MacNeille!" A further play on this occurs at the end of the episode where Homer muses that the computer PA system "sounds like Tress MacNeille!"
