Let’s begin with some much-deserved kudos: Fan-o-rama, this fan-made Futurama flick, is just mind-boggling in its accuracy. The newly released trailer does its level best to capture the unusual characters, locations, and pastel palette of Matt Groening’s beloved show. Even the show’s character designs have been…
Frinkiac, the delightful timewaster that lets Simpsons fans search for their favorite quote and instantly find the matching screencap, just got even better: now it lets you create gifs, too. The world’s productivity just took a serious hit.
The Simpsons have been around for so long (since 1989!) that it’s no surprise that they’ve influenced our culture so much. And though obviously it’s much easier to make a cartoon joke about fake inventions than to actually invent them in the real world (and they’re not always the first TV show to predict them), some…
There’s a still—and a matching quote—from The Simpsons to fit pretty much every occasion in human history. Finding the perfect one, however, just got incredibly easy with the public release of Frinkiac, which trawls through millions of images to match whatever Simpsons quote you put in.
This week, things start to get back to normal! Supergirl, Limitless, Teen Wolf, American Horror Story, Heroes Reborn, Reign, and Nova all return! The Shannara Chronicles, based on Terry Brooks’ fantasy novels, debuts! Plus a full week of Steven Universe, and a couple excellent insect movies! It’s all on This Week’s TV.
Halloween season means a new “Treehouse of Horror” episode from The Simpsons—at least, it has for the past 26 years. Here’s the wonderfully surreal couch gag from “Treehouse of Horror XXVI.” Frank Grimes makes an appearance, looking quite unlike we’ve ever seen him before.
As a follow-up to the Lego Simpsons house, one of the most impressive sets the company has ever released, Lego is giving fans of the animated series another one of Springfield's most iconic backdrops: an astonishingly detailed miniature version of Apu's Kwik-E-Mart.
Though parodying Frozen doesn't exactly pack the same punch as it would have, I don't know, months and months ago, it's still makes me giggle to see Homer as a snowman. The other bits of 'The Couch Gag Before Christmas' is basically the same run as last year's. But who wouldn't want a candy cane bong?
Today's Simpsons-Futurama crossover episode brought us many good things. Some fun gags, some much-needed self-deprecation, evil Bart-gremlin hybrids that taste delicious, lots of Bender (or not enough), and the best of all: The Futurama intro made with Simpsons characters and sung by Homer.
As the tagline for the upcoming Simpsorama episode states, this crossover episode is very clearly a show out of ideas teaming up with a show out of episodes. And yet, I can't get enough! Here's the couch gag for the Simpsorama where Homer finds much enjoyment in the company of robots.
Mark your calendars because this Sunday the Planet Express crew is back for an encore in a new Simpsons episode. The whole Futurama cast—John DiMaggio, Billy West, Katey Sagal, Phil LaMarr, Lauren Tom, Maurice LaMarche, and Tress MacNeille—will be back in an episode called "Simpsorama." Here's a sneak peek!
FXX network's gargantuan marathon of every Simpsons episode ever made the internet swoon. That sweet Simpsons nectar has turned a little sour, though: Some of the greatest sight gags from the show's golden era are being ruined by braindead HD cropping. Won't someone think of the ratios?
This fall The Simpsons is going to have its first big crossover in almost 20 years, when the cast of Family Guy visits Springfield. It's going to be the second time ever in which characters from other animation series appear in full capacity in the longest running sitcom in American TV history.
Until now, Simpsons fans have been relegated to rewatching old episodes on grubby DVDs or downloading them one-by-one on iTunes. A new portal called Simpsons World will launch in October that will allow anyone to browse episodes and share clips—however, to actually watch all the episodes, your cable plan will have to…
I love this Sunday's Simpsons couch gag because it's really dark comedy—like life itself. Take a look.
The full trailer for the special Lego episode of The Simpsons—called The Simpsons' Lego Spectacular—is here. I hope it has the best of the Lego Movie and the best of The Simpsons in it.
Check out The Simpsons' homage to David Letterman. The comedian announced his retirement from TV last week.
Here you have them: The rumored Lego Simpsons minifigs in all their glory! 16 of them, including Itchy and Scratchy with deadly weapons! Even the Simpsons themselves look better than the ones in the house set, because their eyes are fully open.
Listen to super talented voice actor Brock Baker zip through 33 different Simpsons impressions in 5 minutes. His Homer takes a little getting used to but he nails a good chunk of them. There are a few that are pitch perfect (like his Fat Tony). Anyway, it all adds up to a very fun watch.
The Simpsons is the longest running sitcom in TV history. Their design, personalities and even their voices have changed dramatically through 25 years on the air. We just didn't notice day after day, just like we forgot about many obscure and interesting factoids. So obscure that, unless you're a truly obsessive…
