So it came to this.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KUx7o5kdT3s
>>107013080A Simpsons shitshow
How did it all come to this.....
>>107013080Vietnamese children died animating this
>>107013080>All those likes. Yikes.
>checks likes>Checks comments>90% people who like this and the rest are memesJust kill this piece of shit already
>frog and wojack posters crying over a beaten and desecrated corpse being bought Oh geez, how horrible. Now what will /tv/ watch on Sunday nights?
>>107013847>Disney shill is ok with monopoly
>>107013870It's not a monopoly yet.
>>107013080Why the animation looks so bright yet so stiff and dull?
>>107013080>Make a clip poking fun at the corporate nature of this aquisition>The idea if the clip was most likely created in a boardroomI'm really becoming unnerved by how clearly manufactured everything is becoming these days whilst everyone just keeps eating it up. Or am I just getting older and more cynical.
>>107013080Why does Vader have a Simpsons mouth?
>>107014118Maybe it's because it's from the Simpsons, which used to be widely critical of authority and social trends.
>>107013579Nah, looks like Rough Draft. And between this and Star Vs., I bet their animators wish they were dead.>>107014131And Matt being a piss baby over creative and good-looking animation. The show was getting stiffer and stiffer after the first 7 seasons and the change to digital ink & paint, then to Toon Boom only made things worse.
>>107014118The two aren't mutually exclusive.
>>10701382390% of the people who Liked this don't even watch the new episodes.
>>107013080"Put on the ears boy!"That was so half heart, it made me depressed. when was the last time Homer displayed real anger?
>>107014213Groening had nothing to do with the stiff animation, Fox mandated it to save money.
>>107013080The lack of ambient audio really gives modern Simpsons this uncanny feeling.
>>107013080Rupert did not die for this.
>>107014729Music costs money too.
>>107013080probably the best simpson thing in the last 10+ years
>>107013080>The Simpsons are going to Disney!>Don't you mean coming to Disney? We're here too.>I figured if they were coming, the audience would be going.>OHOHOHOHO!
Do we know if it's all the episodes or is there a cutoff?
Of course this is happening.
>>107014645Have you sen the original pilot? Matt and James L. Brooks fucking hated the animation in that for being too rubbery.
>>107014972There's a nicely-animated bit of Homer and Marge dancing they hated but they were right when they said it made them look too good; they're both supposed to be dummies.
>>107014972I mean the HD animation. Fox literally published exact specifications for how big characters' pupils could be and animators were ordered to not deviate from them.
>>107014851as far as I can tell, there's no limitations with the seasons unlike Family Guy and Bob's Burgers.
>>107015072Still, it's in line with Groening's vision that the characters should always be flawlessly on-model at all times, so I can imagine he either supported the initiative or helped back it.
"I for one welcome our new disney overlords"oh, wow. somedy over there is still trying after all those years.
>>107014972But that was mostly Akom's fault.>>107015042>>107015072Disney's modern TV animation is even worse the modern Simpsons and things like The Owl House & Star and the Forces of Evil make modern Simpsons look like Gummi Bears and season 1 of DuckTales'87 in comparison.
>>107015219Aw fuck, we summoned him guys!
>>107014851It'll be all the episodes except for "Stark Raving Dad"
>>107013080Jesus fucking Christ, it's less a zombie at this point and more like a lich.
>>107015262That episode is in there, they're including Song of the South after all.
>>107015042>it made them look too goodWhile I agree with that, it's still doesn't excuse the overall stiffening of the show's animation.
>>107015262there are actual people who defend removing this episode from everything
>>107013080I don't say this that often but this makes me want to die
>>107015340It's crazy, right? They could easily just slap on a disclaimer making it clear that back in the '90s, the general public wasn't as aware of the fucked up stuff that MJ may or may not have been getting up to in the shadows. Completely banning an otherwise harmless episode is just unnecessary censorship.
>>107015406They're begging for attention and participating in the campaign to distract from the ongoing legal troubles of living Hollywood types by propping up fishy stories about a dead man.
>>107013823people are excited about getting 600+ episodes to stream. thats still impressive when you only count the good seasons. that's roughly 200 episodes of good contentbut fuck dude 2/3rds of the simpsons is shit. all the wasted years
>>107015262Can I still listen to 'Do the Bartman'?
>>107015486No. Michael Jackson sang backup, so you're a pedophile if you listen to it.
>>107015406Or just point out that the episode was produced before any allegations were brought forward. No one knew at the time because it simply wasn't an issue yet.
>>107015406>making it clear that back in the '90s, the general public wasn't as aware of the fucked up stuff that MJ may or may not have been getting up to in the shadows.The public was pretty aware. It was everywhere. All over pop culture. Every other late night talk show host was talking about it back when people still watched late night. I heard and saw the jokes all over.
>>107015532>Michael Jackson sang backupdidnt he write the song itself?
>>107015583Co-wrote, actually. Those jabs toward him were his idea iirc.
MJ was such an amazing artist and performer I can forgive him for touching up the occasional child
>>107015826You'd be surprised what kind of things people would forgive if they said something that they might otherwise find objectionable.
>>107013080Jesus they sound awful.
>>107013080The Simpsons may just be the most lifeless fucking show on air.
>>107015406>back in the '90s
>>107016725Sazae-San says hi, that and what Disney TV Animation is doing right now is much worst then modern Simpsons.Now then, heres a lifefull cartoon, as lively as they get.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2GP80E9b6-4
>>107016855>Sazae-Sanholy shit, japan
>>107016887If normies knew they wouldn't call The Simpsons the longest running cartoon on TV.
Sure is a long time from this.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xbGio8FSdzY
>>107016887>It's not even on life support anymore, it's straight up necromancy
>>107016887That's literal Japanese comfort food.
>>107017085Even they find it a zombie franchise since the late 70s.
>>107014131Digital could look the same as the early seasons if they really cared to put in the effort. The stiff look is a deliberate creative choice for who the fuck knows reasons they have.
>>107013080I noticed Lisa doesn't have any lines. Wonder if she's gonna get a reduced role under Disney management, what with how expensive her VA has made herself.
>>107013080for those who know pnp rpgs, disney is turning into horizon FAST.
>>107013080Okay, the ears hitting Dumbo and landing on Homer made me laugh but Bart should have been more reckless and rude so Homer would choke him.
>>107017799Disney won't allow that.
>>107013080Finnaly disney will fix Simpsons.
>>107013080>even with that short line, Holy shit Julie Kavner's voice sounds horribleI cringe everytime Marge's speaks in every new episodes and keep hoping she gets less screentime.
>>107013080This legit made me experience grief. Disney owning the Simpsons is a waking nightmare.
>>107015262So did they remove this episode for the free publiclity they got by announcing they removed the episode,or did they remove this episode to ensure there wouldn't be any hiccups during the merger?
>>107018565Does it matter when the series is already dead?
>Crossover with Goof Troop when?>Crossover with Phineas and Ferb when?
>>107016818I WAS IN A VERY FAMOUS TEEEVEE SHOOOOWWWW
>>107014823God I miss these two
>>107018653>World in Kingdom Hearts 4?It would make sense seeing both franchises have complately gone to shit.
>>107018753DOO DOO DOO-DOO--THREE LITTLE ORPHANS, ONE TWO THREE
>>107013080fuck is the Homer voice messed up now. Like Goddamn. Bart sounds wrong tooMarge sounds like she's at death's door.
>>107014823Statler and Waldorf posting is the best.
Unironically the best thing to happen to the Simpsons, had it stayed in the creative hands of 20th Century Fox then it would have wallowed in its state of mediocrity for infinity, never trying something fresh like how South Park experimented with serialized seasons or Samurai Jack becoming violent in its revival
>>107018648I mostly meant Disney owning the old stuff, but good lord do I dread what kind of new horrors they could unleash aswell.
>>107018849Maybe he can finally meet Goofy & Max and/or Phineas and Ferb.
>>107013515We let it happen there are rules for these things and we have let it slide on the smallest of scale and pretend that it's alright for this to happen. I remember the govt. stepping in to stop microsoft from doing this sort of thing. This truly is corruption no single entity should be able to have this much power.
Times like these is when you fire up the torrents to get all the good seasons. Too bad I don't know any good fucking places to get them from.
>>107018653>>107018872Settle down now
>>107013080Lisa is awfully quiet about Disney. Normally she would bring up concerns of a mega corporations increasing in power
>>107013080>MJ episode is not available
>>107018906She knows which side her gluten-free toast is avocado'd on.
>>107018919Isn't it odd how all these questionable MJ accusations are popping up again right as hollywood is having tons of (((producers))) getting accused of molestation?
>>107018883I miss Drawn Together. If this were on the air today so many heads would explode.
>>107014405Right? There should've been at least an attempt to strangle him.
>>107015406Why does the episode need a disclaimer if Mike used an alias when he gust voiced? Plus the man is innocent as those two fuckshits are lying faggots trying to get billions from Mike's estate. Always trying to degrade a black man's legacy.
>>107015532>you're a pedophile if you listen to it.That makes no sense at all. And Mike ain't no fucking pedo. All the man wanted to do was mentor that's it.
>>107017126>The stiff look is a deliberate creative choice for who the fuck knows reasons they haveMoney.
>>107015532>that animationNo way this is from the show. It's too good. What is this from?
>>107013080Tell me how is this a bad thing
>>107016855>posting it with commentaryGod fucking dammit.
>>107015406MJ DID NOT FUCK KIDS!WAKE UP!watch the videos of Razorfist, he even had Taj and Brandi Jackson.
>>107019818The music video for Michael Jackson's "Black or White." Admittedly, most animation made exclusively for promos would look much smoother than the actual show: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s4pE_THlSaQ But as >>107013080 has proven, that can never happen nowadays.
>>107016887https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7d7vpTYIMro>2500 episodes>many of em lost, probably forever>author never wanted home video releases or merch>still used cels on film until 2009HEY ZOMBIEMPSONS, MEMBER WHEN YOU PUT IMPORTANT WOMEN CARTOON CHARACTERS IN THE GODAWFUL PRO SJW EPISODE YOU DID RECENTLY!?WHERE'S SASAE SAN!?
>>107013515The mouse must feed.
>>107019881Disney will change it to fit their standers.
>>107019897>>author never wanted home video releases or merchWhy no home video? I mean I get the merch thing but even Bill Waterson allowed for complication books.
>>107019831>>107019900The Mouse grows stronger
Marge sounds so horrible, like she's seriously ill
>>107019912according to Lost Media wikiAvailabilityDespite Sazae-san’s popularity, only a small percentage of episodes have surfaced online. The most obvious reason for this is due to Machiko Hasegawa’s request that there be no home video releases of the series. Even after her death in 1992, her wish was honored, and to this day not a single episode has been released outside of TV broadcasts.This, combined with the fact that most episodes air once and never again, and the fact that the series has been running since long before home taping became commonplace, means recordings of most early episodes are nonexistent outside of studio archives.Sazae-san's first episodeHowever, even many modern episodes have not resurfaced online either, due to Fuji TV’s aggressive takedown orders and a lack of any serious preservation effort from fans. The exact number of found segments is unknown and constantly changing; notably, a few early episodes have turned up after being re-aired in various anniversary specials. Aside from this, many episodes from the 2010s can be found on YouTube, but without any clear organization. Episodes from other eras appear to be few and far between.Given the situation, it is extremely likely no full archive will ever exist, unless the rights-holders make the drastic decision to stop honoring Hasegawa’s request.
>>107016887Ouch, my brain. It looks cute though.
>>107019912Broadcast was it's soul source of income (only 1 of the 7 minute shorts have original animation, the remaining 14 minutes are reruns) and that if it did see a home video release people will see how much they repeat the plots and hence the ratings will drop.In fact it's the only TV anime in existence that turns a profit through broadcast due to it's low cost ($40,000 per 7 minute short).>>107019897It's crew most likely has no idea what Sazae-San even is.
>>107019966>>107019897>>107016887I actually watched few episodes of this series which were recorded by the japanese language teacher in my multi language school when i was taking english classes, and on breaks i will listen to japanese vhs, they also had episodes of chibi maruko chan.all in the early 2000si am from mexico btw.
>>107015406What I don't get is why this documentary is getting Jackson in trouble when it doesn't really present anything new and we already been through the "MJ in his pajamas, dancing on top his car before a trial" thing and a wave of creepy MJ jokes that everybody did but somehow everyone is shocked again. It's not like MJ is around anymore to make apology or delete his twitter.
>>107019881I want to go back.
>>107013080Is this real ? WTF
>>107019881I miss when Ed was recognized as Al Bundy and not the grandfather on a shitty abc comedy.
>>107020110We all knew he probably did it, it's fucking crazy that it's suddenly a big deal again when a documentary with zero new evidence made by people who recently failed to sue the estate airs on tv. Like I'm not saying Jackson didn't do something, he probably did, he ALWAYS probably did, but this documentary is your ultimate proof that finally convinces you to turn on the guy? Fuck off.
>>107020219Same. >they're STILL making new episodes
>>107020234Holy shit that is some awful photoshop. Ed still looks good though.
>>107017428i reckon they're going to kill her off
KILL FILTHY WARNER BROS THINGS, YES YESKILL KILL DISGUSTING COMCAST THINGSPRAISE STARTHINGS AND SUPERTHINGS FOR HORNED MOUSE GOD, YES YES
>>107013080Does this mean Imma Disney Prince, Daaad?
>>107013920>Disney>makes almost 20% of movies being released now>not a monopoly.
>>107018849People said the same thing about Star Wars.
>>107020110because #believevictims, ESPECIALLY if there's no evidence
>>107014118 We're all being brainwashed by pop culture in one way or another. Either you eat it up or you're manipulated to turn against it, taking solace where you think you're safe but really they're just selling you more shit.
>>107018973Eh, not really. Violence and crude humor is commonplace now. Although I did always want to bang Toot
>>107015042>>107015336Blame James L Brooks. I can't believe for years people took what he said about Some Enchanted Evening having terrible animation as gospel. You still find places online that repeat "James L Brooks was so disgusted at the poor quality of the animation for the first episode he almost cancelled the cartoon." He was just a cheap bastard and didn't want to admit he wanted poor quality animation. Every creative decision he made was crap, the Simpsons only became good DESPITE his meddling.
> I gotta be honest, I laughed more at this 48 second short than the past 10 years of seasons. > At least Disney respects the comedy of The Simpsons The comments make this even worse. Why are people like this? ;_;
>>107023894 because they don't actually have any standards
>>107023894No wait it's a fucking snekfag. Problem is they're mentally disabled.
>>107014405Which is then followed by Bart sounding like an old woman
>>107019881Good Lord that’s comfy
Time to put Marge's VA down. Yikes.
>>107013144Honestly, this. We're just bickering about which evil company gets to own The Simpsons.All 30 seasons available instantly for streaming is already better than anything Fox did with The Simpsons in recent years.
>>107018653Better than Family Guy.
>>107023441And it's true. Star Wars was nothing but a joke during the Episode 1-3 era. Now there are lots of Star Wars shit to be excited about. The only thing Star Wars is really failing at are the video games, because EA can't into anything. But hey! Respawn!
>>107023894well, it did respect the comedy, in any other circumstance, disney would sue the fuck out of Fox by that Dumbo cameo.and also, said dumbo cameo just crushed homer, we are talking about literal DEATH right there, not real death cuz cartoons, but yeah, i dont think any human would survive being crished by a baby elephant that size.
>>107023462this new attitude DISGUSTS ME!>Beloved artist dies>A bunch of douchebags start rumors and stories of bad behaviour on social media>SHUN THEM! WE MUST SHUN THEM!! I HAVE THE POWAAAH!the guy is DEAD and INNOCENT! leave the fucking plastic surgery riddled ex-black guy child actor alone, he already had a bad enough life without the meddling of those fuckers.
Please protect the dead rich millionaires who preyed upon children.
>>107025475>The only thing Star Wars is really failing at are the video games
>>107025594sorry, but i dont believe it, MJ is innocent. specially since they decided to do this stupid plot, years after his death when he was already quite hated before that.
>>107014851they said the first 30 seasons which I would guess means that season 31 will only be available on hulu until season 32 comes out.Also Stark Raving Dad prolly won't be available because it was banned
>>107025594>rich millionaireYou seem to be appealing to a notion that Jackson is "the power" but he is dead and cannot defend himself, nor is his reputation protected by slander or libel laws.Meanwhile, very powerful living people are pushing the story as hard as they can to distract from their own scandals.
>>107013080>THEY'LL NEVER STOP THE SIMPSONS
>>107025754>You seem to be appealing to a notion that Jackson is "the power" but he is dead and cannot defend himselfhttps://www.vanityfair.com/hollywood/2019/02/michael-jackson-estate-sues-hbo-leaving-neverland No different than when he was alive. Funny how so many of these incidents were settled out of court.
>>107025842>the suit claims HBO entered into an agreement in 1992 to air Michael Jackson in Concert in Bucharest: The Dangerous Tour—a pact that included a non-disparagement agreement.They're suing for breach of contract, not because they're saying salacious things about Jackson. They can't sue for that. The dead aren't protected.>Funny how so many of these incidents were settled out of court.The 1993 civil case (for neglect, not molestation; a criminal case cannot be settled out of court) was settled because California law at the time (since stuck down) allowed civil cases to precede criminal ones, meaning Jackson's defense would have to disadvantage themselves by revealing their whole case to any prosecution they'd have to face in the criminal trial, not to mention this would delay the second leg of a very lucrative concert tour (funny how the accusations came exactly when Jackson was vulnerable in this way). Rich celebrities give in to extortion all the time because the money they have to pay is small compared to what they earn and is covered by insurance a lot of the time (as in Jackson's case). It's easy to pay to "make it go away", especially when your lawyers advise you to.
>>107025385Mark my words, it's going to end up just like when disney got star wars.First you all will be thinking "Oh well they can't be worse than the previous guys".You will be begging for zombie simpsons to come back in the end.
>>107013080at what point do people stop treating being owned by disney as anymore special than being owned by mcdonalds or viacom?
>>107025475Further proof that tripfags are the worst.
am i the only one to point out bart's hat being flipped whenever he turns his head?
>>107013080To think that "The Simpsons movie" is a Disney movie now...
>>107020782Did you mean the character or the actress?
>>107026190At least there's no need to kill Marge's actress, that's for sure.
>new corporate overlordsBecause Fox was a tiny indie startup run from a garage...
>>107017799>>107017964Homer chocked their corporate mascot and didn't care that much. Also, Homer choking Bart just isn't even a thing anymore. Even during the golden years, Homer was rarely doing it. It's just one of those leftover gags from the Tracey Ullman era.
>>107019897Wait a second... that pink outfit...
>>107025385>dumb tripfag fails to understand the meme I guess you're newfag too, go away and never come back.>>107026008Based
>>107014672>>107014692>>107014705>>107014726>>107014734>>107014741S N E E The lack of ambient studio really gives modern Simpsons this uncanny feeling D D
Was the audio recorded in a broom cupboard?
>>107013080>when you thought it was dead but it suddenly bites you in the neck.
>>107014405>>107014405You guys way overestimate just how little the VAs care about anything but money now.
>>107013080Holy shit that audio quality.
>>107019450Came here to post this
>>107013080>"And, I for one, welcome our new Disney overlords."
>>107024722To be fair, Bart's literally voiced by an old woman now, along with all the other children in the show.
>>107023894I think it might be nostalgia
>>107013080>the stinking pile of garbage has been moved from one garbage can to anotherWhy should I care, again?
>>107013080the Simpson was at its best when they were at odds with fox back in the day. maybe being the black ship of a family friendly company again will take them back to their roots.
>>107014672>>107014692>>107014705>>107014726>>107014734By all means, you can have this pestering piece of garbage for yourself. Be my guest.
>>107019950I dont get it
>>107027600I'm surprised she's still that engaged with the show and even wrote an episode script.
>>107016855But where's the commentary? Where are the insightful connections? All all hear is some drool cookiecutter voice droning on about a cameo WITHOUT CONCLUSIVE EVIDENCE and talking over the V.A. he supposedly laudes.
>>107028230Check out the opening scene in Season 29’s “Left Behind.” Tell me what you think of Julie Kavner’s line delivery.
>>107028439Also did you know she's always refused to perform her characters' voices on camera ever since the early days of the show? She thinks it ruins the magic or some bullshit like that.
>>107027600Nice "How do you do fellow kids?" outfit.
>>107017656I saw that reference...and yeah, you're right
>>107028059I'm pretty sure fox was always up to pushing the envelope, Married with Children was their first program after all, and that used to be pretty edgy back in the day, essentially being the anti family sitcom.
>>107028439She literally ground up her vocal cords doing that voice for decades.
>>107029080Fox was this upstart little counterculture network making edgy shows that appealed to Gen Xers.
>>107028059I doubt it, there's a lot more wrong with current Simpsons than simply just "It's not edgy anymore", sure that's one of the reasons, but there's just a whole clusterfuck of shit that's wrong with modern Simpsons, it's probably best to just put it out of it's misery already, but that's not going to happen anytime soon.
>>107029524Normies don't want edgy, this is not modern Sonic as nobody wants The Simpsons version of Shadow as one of him is enough.
>>107028439I lack the courage to. Thank you, my good sir.
>>10701681890s were 30 years ago.
>>107023699>mfw manufactured rebellian
>>107014118Well, people certainly wanted the 80s back, so we got it.
>>107013080They could've made a joke about Homer and sequel Genie sounding the same.
>>107014772Rupert Murdoch's greatest contribution to the world is being compost. World is better off with him dead.
>>107025783With her VA's voice going, I'm sure more now than ever that MARGE WILL BECOME A ROBOT!
>>107031163>Everyone's crying about Disney's The Simpsons>Not realizing that Dan Castellaneta is now possibly free to VA on things that aren't the Simpsons.Fingers crossed for a Darkwing Duck announcement in the future.
>>107031632He hasn't voiced anything outside the Simpsons in 20 years because he priced himself out of the business. I'm not kidding. The Simpsons VAs are hated by most of the industry because of their greed.
>>107019866>RazorfistI remember when people were shat on for promoting youtubers, especially absolute tools like him
>>107013080I can't wait for the Disney streaming service to burn and finally take down the Simpsons with it
https://youtu.be/m78gYyTrG7Y I think this couch gag is extremely relevant now
>>107031674Dan just did the HA:Jungle Movie.
>>107026144For fuck's sake stop posting this.
Please make it stop.
>>107013080So will some old episodes be censored in Disney+
Marge's upbringing is rarely touched upon in the show but do they never bring it up cause she had a shitty childhood?Episodes like Moaning Lisa kind make it hinted she didn't have a great mother and whenever they bring up Patty and Selma during her adolescence they often bully her, plus her father was never around due to being a flight attendant and apparently swore a lotHave they never really brought it up because unlike Homers childhood there's not a lot of joke potential or interesting plot potential around it
>>107015406It's honestly fitting that Disney bought them considered how spinless they also are about mentioning the past
>>107018539Not sure if troll or...
>>107026008They weren't worse than the previous guys. No amount of memes will make that reality.
>>107019927what’s the likelihood of Disney editing this joke out once they start streaming the movie ... hell how likely are they to edit any jokes about them
