Kikori's House of the Bizzare and The Simpsons
« Reply #20 on: May 04, 2006, 01:58:48 PM »

I think with the rise of more "in your face" animation, like American Dad, Family Guy, South Park ofcourse, The simpsons has probably comprimised some of its integrity in order to compete.
Although, the LSD and frog (licking) references, have been in the Simpsons for ages.

It has come to my attention that the Simpsons is being constantly insulted, and that many of you have lost your once profound respect of the show. For shame people. If it weren't for The Simpsons you wouldn't have your new fangled clones like "Family Guy" and "American Dad".  When you sit down at night, and watch Peter Griffin sit on his fat can, remember, Homer's a** was there first.

The "guy who died" - Phil Hartman - did the voice of Troy McClure and Lionel Hutz. He also voiced God in a few eps as well as various background/one-time characters.
Duffman is voiced by Hank Azaria, who also does the voices of Moe, Apu, Chief Wiggum, among others.
And Gil is voiced by Dan Castellaneta, who provides the voice of Homer, Barney, krusty, and about 100 others.

I totally agree. I can't help but feel that the glory days of The Simpsons are over, you've gotta' give Groening credit for having The Simpsons last this long. Sure, I don't feel like the new Simpsons eps are anywhere near as good as vintage episodes, they are still entertaining and funny.

Now I love Family Guy, and find it hilarious, but it doesn't come anywhere near The Simpsons in terms of which show is best IMO. Even the biggest fan of Family Guy would have to admit that, while funny, it is basically made up of random crap. Funny crap, but crap nonetheless. Family Guy shamelessly satires EVERYTHING in an entertainingly crude way, and is very shallow. The Simpsons, on the other hand, is diverse and layered and the humour within it is, for want of a better term, much more 'sophisticated'.

You may scoff at that claim, but it isn't until you really study some of the episodes that you realise how full of subtle 'in jokes' and allusions are made. And that really is more sophisticated than Stewie saying "This is worse than that time when [insert funny incident involving well known celebrity here] and then flicking to a shot of said funny incident involving well known celebrity.

This sudden outburst of simpsons loyalty is thanks to the fact that we got to study it in class and I realised just how filled with political comments etc it is.

Duffman was in a new episode I watched last night. In fact there were multiple Duffmen. The episode was about Marge and Homer giving Marriage Counselling to a baseball star, Buck,  and his pop singer wife, Tabitha.

Simpsons and Futurama outdo Family Guy and American Dad by far.

Season 17 was hit or miss. There were some really damn funny episodes and there were some really godawful episodes.

One of my faves for the season was the Simpsons in Rome "Vendetta! Vendetta!"


Watched ep 1 of season 18 again today. The episode where Homer and Bart take over Fat Tony's business while he's in hopsital. It was ok. Not bad, not great either but it provided some laughs.

Wow, its been ages since i've been in here. Having recently caught up on my simpsons viewing, i'm glad to say the show has maintained it's credibilty despite some disappointment over the movie.

However, as loyal as I am to my favourite show, I cant help but feel that the movie was little more than a prolonged episode, which, (despite me fully expecting it) let me down slightly.  Then again, a big blowout movie with an elaborate plot just wouldn't be the simpsons.

Anyway I'd like to take this opportunity to re-open Kik's House of the Bizzare and (Mostly) The Simpsons, and encourage you to go back to asking your simpsons related q's.  Im sure Al and Ash will correct me on any stuff i get wrong.

Cheers

Kiks

Season 20 has kicked off, and the first 3 eps have been fantastic.

Heard there was a seperate Groening script for the movie. If anyone has heard anything about this, pleae hollar back at me.

Apparently it was alot more suitable as a movie, but they didn't want to pressure on the show.

Remember someone asking about Senor Ding Dong, and with The Spirit due to come out in a few, fiugured this mught be of interest.

Simpsons Super Spectacular #8: Brace yourself for the return of one of Springfield’s most unheralded but most in demand superheroes - Senor Ding Dong, and he makes house calls on weekends, too. Then join the Sprint, a balding, paunchy middle-age hero on his pursuit through the underbelly of the mean streets of Springfield in search of one thing…a beer at Moe’s. Finally, meet the newest member of the Radioactive Man family…Radioactive Rabbit! Simpsonic heroes will rise this December!
