Like Banksy, John K., and Guillermo before him, animator Sylvain Chomet (The Illusionist, The Triplets of Belleville) was invited to create his own spin on The Simpsons‘ couch gag. We could watch a whole movie of these things.
Threadless challenged artists to create t-shirt designs in tribute to the 25th anniversary of The Simpsons. In the end, 29 designs were selected for production. We can’t decide which is our favorite, but Worst T-Shirt Ever is up there.
For its latest couch gag, The Simpsons’ animators envisioned what each character on the show might look and sound like if transformed into their musical equivalent. It’s sort of like Peter and the Wolf, FOX style.
The Simpsons turn into a multiracial band of adventurers in search of the fabled Comfy Couch in this The Hobbit-themed opening sequence. It’s not as epic as the one from the Halloween episode, but it’s still funny and geeky. Poor Moe.
Director Guillermo del Toro handled the opening bit for The Simpsons’ latest Halloween special. The sequence is filled with fantasy and horror authors and characters, including ones from del Toro’s movies. Can you spot Gipsy Danger?
A compilation of Springfield’s resident Hollywood has-been Troy McClure mentioning the awful movies and TV shows he appeared in. You can see all of the film titles here. We’d pay to see Lead Paint: Delicious But Deadly.
Universal Orlando recently opened real world equivalents of the restaurants and shops in the cartoon, such as Krusty Burger, Kwik-E-Mart and Moe’s Tavern. We hope someone prank calls Moe’s every day. More here.
Rocker Julien Brasart cranks out another head-banging rendition of a classic theme song – the opening credits from The Simpsons. To be honest, we wouldn’t mind if FOX went with Julien’s version to freshen things up.
