The Simpsons animated television series has touched upon a variety of environmental topics over the years — from going vegetarian to pollution, climate change, and deforestation. This past Sunday, the Colony Collapse Disorder of Bees was the focus in an episode titled “”The Burns and the Bees”. The Daily Green has a good recap saying,

“In the show, Springfield’s bees are all dying, and the eccentric Groundskeeper Willy laments that the same is happening to bees around the world (learn more about mysterious colony collapse disorder). Lisa tries to point out how bees are beneficial in ecosystems and agriculture, to which Homer responds that “Flowers are the painted whores of the plant world.”

Pixar’s environmental icon Wall-E even makes an appearance after Homer envisions an apocalyptic world without honey. Check out the short clip below or jump on over to Hulu for the full episode!
