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 BEST The Simpsons
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.
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.
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.
(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.
“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.
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.
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.
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.
John Hatfield took YouTuber Omni Verse’s video collage of 554 The Simpsons episodes all playing at the same time and turned it into a 360º video. We’d tell you to watch it with virtual reality headsets, but we don’t know what kind of hell we might be throwing you into.
