"Do the Bartman" was a huge hit for "The Simpsons" in 1990. I didn't know Michael Jackson wrote this song until recently. I knew that Jackson was a big fan of "The Simpsons" - as he did an uncredited guest appearance in the show's season three premiere.
Jackson couldn't be credited for the song due to record label issues. Show creator Matt Groening confirmed that Jackson co-wrote the song in a 1998 interview.
Just thought I'd throw out that Simpsons/Michael Jackson connection.
