Long-suffering Simpsons villain Sideshow Bob will finally be able to tell Bart Simpson to eat his shorts, after killing him off on the coming season's Halloween episode.

Executive producer Al Jean tells Entertainment Weekly that Kelsey Grammer's bumbling character, who's been trying to murder Bart for well over a decade, will pull off the feat on this year's Treehouse of Horror. Jean didn't offer too many details, but said, “You’re going to see Sideshow Bob do something that he’s wanted to do for a long time. I’m one of the people who always wanted the coyote to eat the road runner. You can see where this is going.
