The official Simpsons panel on Saturday afternoon featured Matt Groening and several of the show's writers. An extra-long version (with new scenes) of the episode "I'm Spelling As Fast As I Can" was screened followed by a Q&A session where the panel members answered fan questions. During the Q&A, SCS administrator phalen180 got up and presented Matt Groening with a special custom figure of him that was sculpted by member GrownUpGerald. Matt seemed genuinely touched by the gift, showing it off to panel moderator Bill Morrison at one point.
