Synopsis by Mark Deming
MAGGIE SIMPSON IN THE LONGEST DAYCARE The youngest member of the Simpson Family gets a big-screen adventure of her own in this short animated comedy. Busy Marge Simpson enrolls her baby daughter Maggie at a new day care facility, The Ayn Rand School For Tots. As befits the name, the day care center takes a less than compassionate approach to looking after youngsters, and Maggie soon finds herself squaring off with foul-tempered Baby Gerald when she befriends a caterpillar. Inspired by a subplot from a 1992 episode of The Simpsons, "A Streetcar Named Marge," Maggie Simpson in The Longest Daycare was produced in 3D and released to theaters in tandem with the 2012 animated feature Ice Age: Continental Drift. The short received a 2013 Academy Award nomination as Best Animated Short Subject.
