First Look: Alyson Hannigan On ‘The Simpsons’

Apparently How I Met Your Mother star Alyson Hannigan is going to guest star in animated form on an upcoming episode of The Simpsons and today we get our first look at Aly‘s Simpsons character for an episode coming up in January.

When THE SIMPSONS returns with its first new episode of 2011 on January 16, it’s about to get a helluva lot better for the citizens of Springfield. Not only do Kristen Wiig and Alyson Hannigan drop by as a mother daughter duo that sweeps Principal Skinner, and to a lesser extent, Bart off of their feet. But Smithers (alongside Grady, voiced by special guest star Scott Thompson) will give Moe a much-needed lesson in acceptance when they help transform his dingy pub into “Mo’s,” Springfield’s new local gay hangout.

Okay so this sounds totally fun. Especially since Moe’s Tavern is apparently going to turn into a gay bar called Mo’s. I mean, how can that not be hilarious, right?
