Dead Bart is a creepypasta about a "Lost Episode" regarding the character Bart from the animated sitcom The Simpsons. Though proven false, the story claims that unseen footage of the series was given to the witness by Matt Groening himself, who immediately became nervous upon the mentioning of the mystery episode.


The story was written by GameFAQs user KI Simpson[1] and published in a Suicide Mouse thread[2] on January 19th, 2010. In the story, Bart is sucked out of a plane and much of the rest of the episode focuses on the Simpsons afterwards crying and acting depressed. At the end of the episode, the name of several Simpsons guest stars appear on tombstones, with those who had passed away at the time of the creepypasta's posting listed with accurate death dates. Simpsons guest stars who had yet to die all had the same date listed as their death date.

The story is listed on the Creepypasta[3] wiki and on TV Tropes.[6] It has also been covered by several media outlets as a hoax[5] and, as Mashable[4] dubbed it, an "absurd fan theory." Explainers for the creepypasta have also been posted to YouTube. For example, on July 20th, 2017, ChannelFrederator posted an explainer for the creepypasta that gained over 700,000 views (shown below, left).
