THE BEST The Simpsons

The Simpsons Theme on Flute

The Simpsons Theme on Flute

Ariana Flute has some pretty great covers up on her YouTube channel, including this version of Danny Elfman’s theme song to The Simpsons. It sounds pretty awesome played on the flute, and the piano accompaniment by Ella Piknjac ain’t too shabby either. The only thing missing is Lisa on the saxophone.

Extremesons Couch Gag

Extremesons Couch Gag

Animators Michał Socha and his brother Jakub previously worked on The Simpsons’ Inside Homer’s Brain and the Build Your Own couch gags. Their latest creation is this low-fi animation which envisions The Simpsons as a family of extreme action stars in an all-digital world.

Nelson Visits Midnight City

Nelson Visits Midnight City

The Simpsons’ resident bully Nelson Muntz spends his days in Springfield, and his evenings in Midnight City. Or at least that’s what we’ve been lead to believe by Teo Domani, who figured out that Nelson’s familiar “Ha-Ha!” taunt fits perfectly into the electronic sounds of the track by M83.

Bort Sampson

Bort Sampson

LEGO builder Baron Julius von Brunk created this deranged stop-motion short which envisions an alternative universe version of The Simpsons, in which Bart, er Bort likes to sniff gasoline fumes and burn down lemon trees. Can Milhaus stop him before he destroys Sprungfeld?

Frinkiac Simpsons Database

Frinkiac Simpsons Database

A team of smart Simpsons fans put together this database that can search for screenshots of episodes from the TV series based on closed captioning data. Over 3 million images have been indexed, and can be used to generate GIFs or meme images. They’ve also done the same for Futurama and Rick and Morty.

The Simpsons’ Disney References

The Simpsons’ Disney References

Now that Disney owns the studio that makes The Simpsons, they figured it was time to pay tribute to some of the many times the series satirized or referenced Disney’s iconic properties. Since they also own Marvel and Star Wars, they couldn’t resist doing compilations for those franchises too.

The Simpsons: Comfortably Numb

The Simpsons: Comfortably Numb

Caio Rossi of R3DUX Studios cut together this great mashup of clips from The Simpsons, set to Pink Floyd’s 1979 classic Comfortably Numb. The Portuguese subtitles somehow make it feel even more like a depressing foreign film. His Simpsons x Futurama version of the band’s Time is also worth a watch.

Best Play Ever Notebooks

Best Play Ever Notebooks

The guys at Best Play Ever offer up a variety of funny notebooks featuring imagery from pop culture, including hilarious memes from The Simpsons, Back to the Future’s Gray’s Sports Almanac, books from the world of Wes Anderson, and more.

The Simpsons Russian Opening

The Simpsons Russian Opening

We’re pretty sure that Fox won’t be running Lazy Square’s unofficial opening for The Simpsons any time soon. The incredibly somber couch gag starts out with Bart robbing a kid of his phone and skateboard, and it just gets darker and more oppressive from there.

Disenchantment (Teaser)

Disenchantment (Teaser)

Cartoonist Matt Groening gave us the present with The Simpsons, then he entertained us in a futuristic setting with Futurama. So for his upcoming Netflix show Disenchantment, it’s only fitting that he goes to the past. The show premieres 8/17/18.

Simpsons Reservoir Dogs Couch Gag

Simpsons Reservoir Dogs Couch Gag

(Gore) Krusty and other Springfield characters star in a heist gone horribly wrong. Claymation master Lee Hardcastle shares what he says is a banned couch gag that he made for The Simpsons. The song is I Need A New Beginning by Ruiji – an homage to Where Is My Mind.

The Simpsons Devil Flanders Figure

The Simpsons Devil Flanders Figure

“It’s always the one you least suspect.” Kidrobot and The Simpsons’ Halloween collectible is a 6.5″-tall figure of the Devil as Ned Flanders from the 1993 episode Treehouse of Horror IV. The glow-in-the-dark edition is limited to 500 pieces but costs the same as the regular toy.

Nancy Cartwright: Rapid-fire Simpsons

Nancy Cartwright: Rapid-fire Simpsons

Actor Nancy Cartwright rattles off voices from seven characters she plays on The Simpsons, from Bart Simpson, to Todd Flanders, to everyone’s favorite nose-picker, Ralph Wiggum. Who else knew Kearney’s last name before today? We sure didn’t.

Simpsons Donut Backpack

Simpsons Donut Backpack

State Bicycle Co.’s backpack is decked out in sprinkle-covered donuts, just like the one Homer snarfs down. The weatherproof Cordura bag offers an expandable roll-top, a reflective front panel, and pockets for a water bottle, a bicycle U-lock, and a padded one for a laptop.

Bart Gets the Remote

Bart Gets the Remote

Things go horribly awry in this dark and twisted couch gag from season 28 (yikes!) of The Simpsons, in a sequence that seems more like a Treehouse of Horror opener than something we’d see so close to Thanksgiving.

Pokémon x The Simpsons

Pokémon x The Simpsons

Etsy shop Thumbs Design makes high quality bootleg pins, stickers and other merchandise that combine The Simpsons with other popular movies and TV shows. Its newest offerings depict Bart and company as Pokémon. Ralph as Psyduck is all we need.

Okilly Dokilly: White Wine Spritzer

Okilly Dokilly: White Wine Spritzer

Hi-dilly-ho Neigboreenos! If you’ve been dying for a Ned Flanders themed metal band, today is your lucky day, as these guys just dropped the first single from their debut album, Howdilly Doodilly, due out 11/11/16.

The Simpsons A Capella (Again)

The Simpsons A Capella (Again)

This isn’t the first time we’ve heard Danny Elfman’s theme song from The Simpsons performed a capella, but it’s definitely the first time we’ve seen it performed in creepy yellow makeup and blue hairdos. Thanks for the nightmare fuel, The Warp Zone.

Simpsons Time

Simpsons Time

The first episode of The Simpsons’ 28th season (daaaamn!) kicked off with a recreation of Adventure Time’s opening sequence, except it’s filled with Springfield’s citizens. It even has Adventure Time creator Pendleton Ward singing a variant of his show’s tune.

Homer Simpson: An Economic Analysis

Homer Simpson: An Economic Analysis

Aside from sleeping at the Springfield nuclear plant, Homer Simpson has had more than a hundred other jobs. Vox averaged his salaries from the past three decades and came up with a depressing conclusion: that Homer reflects the plight of the middle class American.

Halloween 2016 Phunny Plushies

Kidrobot’s Halloween treat is a collection of spooky but still cute plushies based on Freddy Krueger, Jason Voorhees, Itchy, Scratchy and undead versions of the Simpsons family.

Hank Azaria Simpsons Graduation

Hank Azaria Simpsons Graduation

During the commencement for Tufts University’s class of 2016, actor Hank Azaria decided to conclude his speech with some sage advice, though he did it in the voices of Moe, Apu, Chief Wiggum, and other characters he portrays on The Simpsons.

Homer Live

Homer Live

At the end of the latest episode of The Simpsons, Dan Castellaneta took live calls from viewers while MoCap synched the animation. The result was pretty impressive, though the questions were just as vacuous as Homer’s answers. West coast feed here. Int’l feed here.

Inventions Predicted by The Simpsons

Inventions Predicted by The Simpsons

The Simpsons has both reflected and influenced pop culture for much of its 26+ year run. But did you know the series also managed to predict (or potentially caused the creation of) a number of inventions? Does this mean we can blame them for Farmville? And autocorrect.

Simpsons Disney Couch Gag

Simpsons Disney Couch Gag

The Simpsons’ latest couch gag pays homage to Cinderella, The Jungle Book and other classic Disney animated films. It was made by veteran Disney animator Eric Goldberg (Aladdin, Winnie the Pooh, Paperman).

The Simpsons x Bang Bang

The Simpsons x Bang Bang

Remix maker The Amazing Mashups Mixes combined the theme song from The Simpsons with the Jessie J, Ariana Grande, Nicki Minaj pop hit Bang Bang, and it works surprisingly well for the most part. Skip to 0:11.
