The Simpsons Complete Season 20 will be released in America January 12 on DVD and, for the first time, in HD on Blu-ray.

As a special feature, the DVD has completely new menus drawn by Matt Groening himself, and a poster containing loads of Simpsons characters - though we're not sure if this is the same one that's been in the shops for over 10 years.

Simpsons Season 20 to be released on DVD and Blu-Ray!

Simpsons News — Posted 09 Oct, 2009 by Scott

Even though Season 12 was only put out recently, it appears Fox will be releasing Season 20 on DVD/Blu-Ray before the end of the year!

Season 20 saw The Simpsons switch to widescreen and High Definition. Many other shows release their DVDs soon after the episodes have aired, so this decision release makes sense. It is believed that the older DVDs (Season 13-19) will continue to be released alternately with the latest Season, every 6 months.

Here is the box art. Click the image to see the hi-res version:

Simpsons News — Posted 18 Sep, 2009 by Scott

Sacha Baron CohenBritish comedian Sacha Baron Cohen is to guest in an upcoming Simpsons episode where the family take a church-group trip to the Holy Land. Cohen is the alter ego of presenter Ali G and fashion reporter Bruno, but is probably best known for his portrayal of Kazakhstan reporter Borat (pictured).

In the episode, Cohen will play an Israeli tour guide angered by the Simpsons, in particular Homer - who gets a case of Jerusalem Syndrome and believes that he is the messiah.

The episode is slated for a March 28 airing, to coincide with Palm Sunday, and is titled The Greatest Story Ever D’ohed.

Bart Gets a 'Z' information

Simpsons News — Posted 16 Sep, 2009 by Scott

Fox has released some information for the upcoming episode, Bart Gets a 'Z'. It will air on October 4th.

When Mrs. Krabappel confiscates student’s cell phones, the class, organized by Bart, decides to teach her a lesson by spiking her coffee and watching her make a drunken fool of herself. Principal Skinner fires Mrs. Krabappel and replaces her with a cool new teacher, Zachary Vaughn, who impresses Bart and his friends with a hip attitude and love of texting, blogging and using Twitter and Facebook. Torn by his affection for Mr. Vaughn, yet plagued by guilt, Bart makes his way to Skinner’s office to tell him the truth and get Mrs. Krabappel’s job back.


Simpsons lose animation Emmy, but Dan Castellaneta wins for voicing

Simpsons News — Posted 16 Sep, 2009 by Scott

The winners for the 2009 Creative Arts Emmys - the precursor to the main Emmy ceremony - have been announced.

The Simpsons episode Gone, Maggie, Gone was nominated for Outstanding Animated Program, along with South Park's Margaritaville and episodes of American Dad and Robot Chicken.

However, The Simpsons lost out to South Park - which is a shame, because theirs was one of the weaker episodes of the Season, while Gone, Maggie, Gone was on of the best of Season 20. The same episode was also nominated for Outstanding Music Composition For A Series, but lost to ABC show Legend Of The Seeker.

There was some good news though, as Dan Castellaneta - the voice of Homer - won an Emmy for Outstanding Voice-Over Performance for the episode Father Knows Worst. Congratulations, Dan! Also nominated in the same category were Hank Azaria - voice of Moe - for Eeny Teeny Maya, Moe and Harry Shearer - voice of Burns and Smithers - for The Burns and the Bees.

The Simpsons get African makeover in Angola

Simpsons News — Posted 24 Aug, 2009 by Scott

The Simpsons family have received a cultural makeover by an Angolan advertising agency to promote the show there.

The Simpsons as Angolans
Even Homer's Duff Beer has been changed to Cuca, a popular beer in Angola.
Homer, Marge and the kids were given brown skin instead of the usual yellow, and they wear traditional African clothes. Instead of her points, Lisa has braids.

The show itself will of course air in yellow as normal - just think how long it would take them to reanimate it!

Antonio Pascoa, the Creative Director of Executive Center, said, "Our goal was to adapt the satirical parody of the typical middle-class American family to Angola. If people don't like it than I guess they don't have a sense of humor big enough to enjoy the Simpsons."

New British censorship guide

Website Updates — Posted 10 Jun, 2007 by Scott

Wow, it's been way too long since I made a content update here, but this is a big one! Today we unveil our extensive guide to Simpsons censorship in the UK, listing all the words, lines and even whole scenes cut from episodes because of bad language, violence and some more reasons that don't make sense.

I 'inherited' the guide from another site that shut down, The Britsons. And after a lot of work formatting, editing and adding to the great work done before me, we have what is one of our finest sections here at Simpson Crazy.

If you're a Briton you will find it indispensible. If not, I'm sure you will have fun reading through what our TV channels believe is offensive!

New wallpapers!

Website Updates — Posted 02 Jan, 2007 by Scott

Happy New Year! And what better way to kick off 2007 than a new wallpaper for your desktop! I've added 23 new wallpapers to the gallery - there are so many now I've had to split it up into four sections:
- Simpsons characters
- Other characters
- Episode-specific
- Other scenes

I also took a decision to limit the resolutions to 1024x768 and 1280x1024 because these are increasingly becoming the two most common resolutions. If you are using a low resolution you should consider switching up so that the backgrounds look better.

Enjoy!

New wallpapers and images

Website Updates — Posted 10 Apr, 2006 by Scott

I was thinking the other day how long it's been since I added any pictures to Simpson Crazy. So I got out my creative cap and put together a new set of classy wallpapers, each featuring a character with classic quote.

Each one is available in 1024x768 or 1280x960 res. It's just too much effort to make too many sizes.

I also added six new pictures to the image gallery, in the townspeople section:

A guide for the Season Six DVD has been added at last. It lists special features, 'Easter Eggs', and all the cool menu animations! Season Seven has been partially completed, but as I do not have this DVD yet it is not finished.

The Tracey Ullman shorts page has been finished finally! We now have en episode guide for all 48 shorts, where you can also download each episode.

Finally, the contests have been reset. Thing is, I kinda messed up the last one (long story...). I've decided to scrap the character contest and concentrate of the Secret Sound contest, which I have more enthusiasm for. Head on over to the Interactive page to enter the new Secret Sound contest!
