RuPaul Makes Animated Debut On ‘The Simpsons’ This Sunday

You know you’ve arrived at the pinnacle of pop culture when you get that call to guest star on an episode of The Simpsons.


This Sunday, Emmy Award-winner RuPaul makes his animated debut on the long running animated series as “Queen Chante.”

FOX released a quick video tease of the upcoming episode along with some clues about the storyline.

From what we know so far, Marge makes yet another attempt at finding a successful career, this time as a Tupperware salesperson. 

But to get an edge on her competition, Marge’s hairdresser, Julio, suggests selling the plastic storage products in drag. Apparently, drag queens sell the most Tupperware – who knew?


Showrunner Al Jean told Entertainment Weekly in a recent interview, “This is true – most successful Tupperware sellers are drag queens.”

Dang, queens are good at everything!


Also in the mix, Homer makes HIS drag debut complete with full-on runway strut adorned in a blond wig and black dress. 

How the animated series has gone 30 seasons without Homer in drag almost boggles the mind.

Plus, not only do we get Mama Ru in the drag-tastic episode, but RuPaul’s Drag Race Season 3 winner, Raja, makes a cameo as herself as well.

In an Instagram post, Raja shared the cartoon image writing, “The Simpsons was a huge part of my childhood, being asked to be on an episode was surreal and mind blowing, to say the least.”


Watch the teaser below. And remember, Mama Ru’s “Queen Chante” will come to slay this Sunday at 8/7c on FOX.
