When Billie Met Lisa is a The Simpsons short. It was released on Disney+ on April 22, 2022. The short was written by Elisabeth Kiernan Averick, Broti Gupta, Al Jean, Cesar Mazariegos, and David Mirkin and directed by David Silverman. It guest stars Billie Eilish as herself and Finneas O'Connell as himself.
- "Lisa Simpson is discovered by chart-topping artists Billie Eilish and FINNEAS while searching for a quiet place to practice her saxophone. Billie invites Lisa to her studio for a special jam session she'll never forget."
Lisa is playing the sax on the couch, when she receives a message on her phone by Homer to stop playing so he can work (sleep on the hammock) in peace. Marge comes in the room to clean up and starts bothering her, cleaning the sax too. Lisa relocates on the treehouse, but Bart starts using a chainsaw to bother her too, so she relocates to a room at Springfield Elementary that is labeled "Welcome kids who can't practice at home", where she finds other kids playing.
Not finding peace, she relocates under an overpass, where a car stops nearby, and Billie Eilish notices her and invites her to jam at Billie Eilish Recording, where they play the Simpsons theme and everyone in Springfield appreciates it. In the end they end up stargazing above the car where they discuss her family appreciating her music.
When Billie Met Lisa was nominated for a Primetime Emmy Award for Outstanding Short Form Animated Program in the 74th Primetime Emmy Awards. However, it lost to "Jibaro" from Love, Death & Robots.
