It hails from 2013 in an episode called 'Love is a Many-Splintered Thing', and sees Bart trying to impress a lady by watching 'Love, Indubitably', a nod to Christmas classic 'Love Actually'.
In the parody film Bart watches, a Hugh Grant-version of the Prime Minister, who is voiced by Benedict Cumberbatch, proclaims his love for a lower class lady named Eliza Commonbottom.
The two kiss, and a Pandora’s box of silly British pop cultural references is opened, which includes one of Rickman's most famed portrayals, Snape (whom Cumberbatch also voiced), and a Bowie-penned song 'All the Young Dudes'.
Oh, and there's a 'Doctor Who' reference in the form of a TARDIS for good measure too - obviously.
Programme creators also posted another Bowie-Simpsons mashup on the day it was revealed he ha died of cancer.
It featured a bowed-headed Homer with a lightning bolt across his face and Bowie's distinctive hairstyle moddled on the cover of his sixth album 'Aladdin Sane'.
We'll leave you to enjoy the tribute video!
